2000 scholarships worth more than $30m

It was reported that the Singapore Govt gave 2000 scholarships worth $34m or $36m to foreigners. I did not get it whether it was for a year or for how many years. Whichever, it is a significant number of scholarships given to foreigners. The point I would want to know is how many scholarships did the Govt give to children of its citizens annually? This kind of comparison is getting increasingly of interest to the citizens when good money was seen to be thrown to the wind or to the undeservings while the parents of Sin children would have to empty their life savings, some selling their precious homes, to finance their children for overseas studies. It doesn't look like a fair or sound deal. A misallocation of national resources, misplaced loyalty of sort.

Scholarship is given to cover secondary - Uni students....

In addition, 'pocket' money or grant is given + free tuition /accommodation of stay (borne by the government). All in, that will cost us millions of dollars per year.

On top of that, all have the 'priority seats' in top schools...

How about average native Singaporeans? Uniquely Singapore, indeed!

Yes, I'd like to see a complete listing of all the scholarships and their dollar value given to Aliens and Singaporeans.

I want to know if we have Pro Alien traitors running our government.

Let's vote in more Opposition MPs to ask the questions in parliament.

The Pro Alien Traitors are very generous with Singaporeans' money.
When it comes to subsidizing Aliens.
But very stingy when it comes to helping needy Singaporeans and their families.

Long before the recent National Con, Singaporeans were already conned big time by the PAP.

But, being daft, and 60% still remain daft, they really deserve this kind of treatment.

So, now that the PAP is carrying on with the National Con the 60% will probably still be shouting "Long live the National Con" and "May the farce be with us for eternity"

" Huk Pui !"

Singaporeans do not have basic stuffs like house and private car and in additional gov is throwing tax payers monies into making aliens rich. I really think sinky PM is a pervert.

Public housing costing $400k to $600k, small car COE $77k and Sinkies are very happy that they are affordable. And why not, Sinkies are paying for them happily. No sweat at all.

I have no problem if government give scholarships to deserving students from other countries AFTER they have taken care of the poor and deserving children of our own citizen. But have they? How much were given to local scholarships and how much to our poor and sick?

They treat others like precious metal and treat locals like shit. WTF! By the way, why these were not brought up by opposition MPs?
