HDB advised Sheng Siong to consider before making rental adjustment

The HDB said they have advised Sheng Siong to consider before making any rental or tenancy adjustments. This is after Sheng Siong 30 per cent increase in rental of stalls in their recent bought over of wet markets in areas located in Choa Chu Kang, Bukit Batok and Serangoon North.

HDB commented that Sheng Siong is a private company and thus has no rights to force them to do certain business decisions. I wonder what is the use of just merely say but then no action taken. HDB has also further assured vicinity's residents these wet markets will remain as wet markets and any conversion must come with their approval. Till date, approximately 10 per cent have decided not to carry on with their business due to the 30 per cent in rental fee, and should more leave, will Sheng Siong have a strong case to convert them into a new business setup?

After all, Sheng Siong is a private operator.

Speech by Mr Inderjit Singh on Population White Paper

People's Action Party MP, Mr Inderjit Singh, debated on the Population White Paper and put up his point across that he is against his own party's 6.9m projected population. I applaud his courage to stand up against the party whip and for his fellow Singaporeans.

His key points are;

Slow down immigration and focus on resolving all issue related to the past population boom.We can live with a slightly slower growth (not zero or slow growth) and hence moderate dependence on foreigners.Use the Dubai model to complement our local workforce with foreign workforce, but don’t grant them PRs – ie a transient workforce.Abandon the 6.9m figure by 2030, this will be another rapid growth which we cannot handle.Solve Singaporeans problems first and also don’t give PRs same privileges as citizens.
As published on Mr Inderjit Singh's Facebook status, the full speech made in the parliament is as below:
