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:
