Pritam Singh: GST Is A Regressive Tax

Pritam Singh: GST Is A Regressive Tax

In the post Budget debate in Parliament on Friday, WP's Pritam Singh reiterated the Workers' Party stance on the GST, even though DPM and Finance Minister has said that GST will not be raised in 2021, but will have to be raised eventually by 2025. In his speech, Mr Pritam Singh said that the WP still stand by their earlier comments, that the GST is a regressive tax, and that the tax raise would hit the low and middle income, retirees and seniors particularly hard as they would have to manage their expenditures more frugally, because offsets do not last forever.

This however, drew a sharp rebuke from Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing, who proceeded to give a speech that lasted for half an hour, outlining the government's strategies for growing Singapore’s economy and creating jobs.

So, are the Whites hiding something from Singaporeans, something that would not look too good on them?

Pritam said the motion was carried out hurriedly and and was premature, and indicated that the timing is highly "unusual for a legal system that places an exacting premium on the rule of law as a defining characteristic of the country". He then urged the PAP to come clean and explain to Singaporeans why they hurriedly file the motion before the case is concluded. Pritam also revealed that AHTC's auditors had submitted an unqualified financial statement this year and it has been sent to the Ministry of National Development, which oversees town councils.

So, if Chua thought that he had scored a moral victory over Pritam, then it totally backfired on him. He has now been outed out as nothing more but another noisy PAP grassroots leader, who only has one job, and that is to fix the opposition.

Chua also said the funding for the ramp was secure, with his help of course, in September 2016, and construction works started in December 2018.
