Is Masagos missing something? He is worried that
may not have enough
water? Did he talk to his other ministers who are going to bring in more people
to increase the population to 6.9m and then 10m? I am sure those planning for
6.9m or 10m would have the answers to our water problem. For them to be so
confident about growing the population, they must have worked out the needs for
more water and more energy sources. So, why is Masagos so worried when other
ministers are not worried? Is he out of
the loop? Singapore
Remember the incident when HDB was panicking and quickly selling of the excess stock of flats only to discover, after selling everything and running out of stock, that plane loads of foreigners are being unloaded into the island and creating the infamous housing crisis?
When the population goes up, definitively there will be bigger demand and needs for more water. Unless the new population is a kind of rare breed that don’t need to consume water, no need to bathe, then it should be ok.
Or is this a case of right hand and left hand not knowing what the other is scratching? Our planners cannot be planning for 6.9m or more and forget to think about our water problem right? They must also have thought through the need to build more flats, more Towers of Babel. Energy need should also not be a problem.
Any minister wants to tell Masagos no need to worry about a non problem. We don’t have water shortage problem or energy shortage problem, at least for a population of 6.9m or 10m. And now we only have 5.5m, there cannot be water shortage problem right? 6.9m or 10m are a piece of cake. Everything is already planned.
Sleep well Masagos. Looks like you are the only one worrying about water shortage problem that no one sees. So either everyone is right and you are wrong or you are right and everyone is wrong. Did they tell you about the 6.9m and 10m population plan?
