Tan Jee Say challenged PAP to publish figures for national reserves

Posted by singaporege2011 on May 1, 2011

SDP candidate for Holland-Bukit Timah GRC has challenged the PAP regime to publish figures of the national reserves, after coming under relentless attacks by PAP leaders for his call to tap on the much vaunted reserves.

Mr Tan has proposed using $60 billion dollars from the reserves to fund a variety of programmes to stimulate Singapore’s economy such as $1 million for each local start-up which will create more than 20,000 jobs for Singaporeans.

As expected, his call to ‘touch’ Singapore’s (or the PAP’s?) reserves brought a barrage of criticisms from PAP ministers.

PAP Minister for Trade and Industry Lim Hng Kiang described the reserves as a ‘heritage’:

This is something that is our heritage…..Do you just sell off all your oil, your resources? Or continue to conserve all this, so that subsequent generations benefit?”

Mr Tan’s opponent in Holland-Bukit Timah GRC Dr Vivian Balakrishnan argued that the reserves were Singapore’s ‘ammunition’ in times of trouble:

‘Our reserves are for confidence and the long-term security of our country and our children, and not to be treated in such a flippant, almost trivial, manner.’

During a SDP rally speech last night, Mr Tan challenged the PAP to publish the real figures of Singapore’s reserves:

‘Publish figures of our national reserves. Give a detailed breakdown. Singaporeans have been wanting to know what our reserves are, and the late Ong Teng Cheong wanted to know too.’

Mr Tan was referring to President Ong’s request to the PAP regime to give him a breakdown of the reserves only to be told in no uncertain terms that it will require ’52 man-years’ to do so.

Singapore’s reserves do not belong to the PAP regime. It is built up painstakingly by the savings of generations of Singaporeans over the years.

Do you want our reserves to be invested in Singaporeans or overseas in risky investments by Temasek Holdings and GIC?
