Former PAP NMP Calvin Cheng Slams Pritam Singh's Salary Donation As Wayang And Divisive Politics

PAP IB Calvin Cheng unleashed two Facebook posts to stir controversy over WP Pritam Singh's generosity for donating 50% of his salary. Calvin Cheng said Pritam Singh was participating in political theatre (wayang) by publicly announcing his salary donation while bringing up his family. Calvin Cheng said his donation was an "unnecessary sacrifice" and likened this move to a popularity contest to score political points.

The Workers' Party (WP) MP Pritam Singh announced his gratuity for being given the title as Leader of Opposition. Even though Pritam Singh will be shouldering more responsibilities and spending less time with family, it is admirable how he has decided to take it upon himself to give back even more to the Singaporeans by generously donating 50% of his salary.

GE2020: WP Chief Pritam Singh Standing By Raeesah Khan Is The Epitome Of True Leadership

Despite the dirty smearing of the PAP on WP candidate Raeesah Khan, the WP leadership Pritam Singh and Sylvia Lim stood by their candidate and came out looking even more good than the PAP. If the PAP thought they could destroy the WP Sengkang team with this, they can't be even more wrong.

GE2020: No Need To Vote For PAP Because They Can Be NCMP

Indranee Rajah urged Singaporeans to continue voting for PAP because the revamped NCMP scheme guarantees at least 12 opposition MPs in Parliament. But by the same logic, it can also be argued that there is no need to vote for the PAP because they will also be guaranteed at least 12 seats in parliament.

GE2020: Is Tan Wu Meng So Desperate To Win That He Has To Resort To Playing Racial Politics?

"This man grew up in Singapore. Singapore gave him his education and he earns a living here. An education and a living that is denied to many minorities in the region." Somehow Tan seems to be insinuating that Alfian, as a minority, should be grateful for having been done the special favour of receiving an education from the benevolent majority, as if Singaporean minorities need the goodwill of the benevolent majority to be given an education, as if that goodwill is contingent on Singaporean minorities being subservient and toeing the line.

GE2020: Smear Campaign Started Against Pritam Singh And Alfian Sa'at

GE2020: Smear Campaign Started Against Pritam Singh And Alfian Sa'at

With the General Elections being called soon, it appears that the PAP has started smear campaigns against opposition party members. During the Budget debate on 5 June, Pritam Singh said Singapore should be fortunate that we have citizens who are “loving critics”. Even though Pritam Singh did not name any specific person, Tan Wu Meng inferred that Pritam Singh had spoken in support of Alfian Sa'at. Tan Wu Meng then took this opportunity to smear Pritam Singh who had supposedly voiced support for Alfian Sa'at. Tan Wu Meng asked if Pritam Singh still thinks Alfian Sa'at is a "loving critic" of Singapore based on selected screenshots of Alfian's comments, and went a step further to accuse Pritam Singh of being a "loving critic" himself if he supports Alfian.
