I, am a potential voter in Aljunied, and I have always identified as a opposition voter. And as Leader of the Opposition (LO) has predicted, I am genuinely insulted and disappointed at being referred to as a free rider. I still contribute to my country, as well as its reserves. If anything, please don’t be a hypocrite PM. Your party has said in Parliament, that we must not let diversity lead to polarisation among Singaporeans. But yet you are creating this divide between PAP and opposition voters.

Commentary: Civil Servants, Unelected Can Carry This?

Political appointees have no financial role, safe to say merely ‘approving’ the use of the $5 billion. If the PM is talking about decision making, it is the civil servants who are making the decision behind the scene, collating, presenting, advising where the draw down and transfer of money comes from. So is the prime minister trying to draw wool over people’s eyes when he said, ‘It is a big decision, S$5 billion of supplementary budget.

Commentary: Foreign Investment Welcomed But Citizens Cannot Be Disadvantaged

We cannot expect citizens to be disadvantaged in the name of being open or soliciting for trade.

Opinion: The Workers Party Should Develop “One Service” App For Its Town Councils

On 10 July 2020, residents of Sengkang GRC voted for The Workers Party (WP) to represent them in Parliament and also to handle their municipal matters.

I hope WP will implement this humble suggestion of mine.
