Indian minister of agriculture slapped: The trouble of rising food price

Sharadchandra Govindrao Pawar, currently serves as Minister of Agriculture and Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, was slapped by a youth named Harvinder Singh over charges on corruption and food price Rise. Such protest will get more frequent as food price seems not able to stop ascending.

Historically, elites could not stop despising the people until the moment they saw the guillotine. The slap is just a prelude like a kiss from a brood. If the elites persist on business as usual, they may soon regret.

It's a pity that prices of HDB flats are now reaching half a million for a 4-room HDB resale flat.

This would cause the BTOs to catch up along that line as well.

I suppose the post 40s Singaporeans are enjoying this at the expense of the younger Singaporeans who have to wait ages for a BTO and can't afford the exorbitant HDB resale flats.

"Enjoy"? you said? Yes if they were among the small number of civil servants clock watchers (who therefore had the time) to flip HDBs in the past. And therefore have a few properties to fall back on should they choose to sell now. But the property cycle will re-impose its cyclical nature, hot laundered money won't always flow in to bail out the garment - the hotlt printed Sing dollar has lost 10% in 2 months, the writing is on the wall. What God's servant Goldman Sucks couldn't change, our pinkerton-syndromed (but nicely set up for life) MIW won't be able to change either. Enjoy the finale. See u at the exit, hopefully ...
