Its something i get to see more frequently on the papers. Some constituency get so and so upgrades and the when asked, the MP will say “its always for the election".
This really disgusts me. Bigtime.
If something can be implemented for the benefits of the people in that constituency, should that have been done long ago, as long as budget and other conditions allow? Why wait until elections are coming and dangle this? Are the MP in question only staying in his/her seat for service to the people or what? Have they forgotten what the people elected them for?
Its pure disgusting, really.
But then again, Singaporeans are a cheap bunch of people generally and any sorts of carrots being dangled in front of them is enough to get them to vote “correctly". Such is the level of the citizens, therefore such can only be the level of the MPs.
