Workers’ Party balances Hougang and national issues
The Online Citizen on May 23, 2012
By Benjamin Cheah

Sylvia Lim
Ms Lim said that Ms Phua and Mr Teo were ignorant of what the WP has done for Hougang. She cited a case in 2000, where the Hougang Town Council used its funds to upgrade lifts in some blocks of flats – without requiring residents to pay. She then listed five incidents where the Hougang Citizens’ Consultative Committee did not approve the use of Community Improvement Projects Committee (CIPC) funds for improvement projects, such as signs and footpaths. She said that the Hougang Town Council had to use its own funds to pay for upgrading works.

By Rachel Chang  http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/Singapore/Story/STIStory_802444.html

The Rotary Club is pledging a $100,000 gift to PAP candidate Desmond Choo's initiative to retrofit ageing toilets in Hougang

President of the Rotary Club, Mr Kumar Tapan Rao, said that he was shown a video on YouTube of a resident who had benefited from the retrofitting by a fellow Rotarian last week.

Giving money for a good cause is welcomed but giving money to a politician for a good cause during a political election campaign is venturing into the political arena. By doing this has the Rotary Club taken a new direction? .Is the club taking a position in politics? Is it within the ambit of its constitution? I have always been a supporter of the Rotary Club but I was disappointed by this action.
