A student who lives in Hougang (an opposition ward) asked, “PM Lee, I don’t get upgrading, can I pay less tax?”
Seah said, “When it comes to upgrading, what is being told to us is that we don’t have the funds to actually go ahead with lift upgrading, as well as shelters to the bus stops. When I look across the road to Aljunied GRC, they have everything.”
PM Lee’s reply was, “The answer is that there has to be a distinction. Because the PAP wards supported the Government and the policies which delivered these good things.”
Outrageous. This is not a “distinction.” This is injustice.
