Rotary Club president Kumar Tapan Rao: Donation was not political. Does he think we are stupid? #hougangbyelection

The Rotary Club of Singapore is going ahead with a plan to help retrofit old toilets in Hougang, but dismissed suggestions that it was linked to political intentions. The club had raised eyebrows last week when it said it would raise $100,000 to support a scheme by People's Action Party candidate Desmond Choo. The announcement, which came during the Hougang by-election campaign, prompted some to question its timing. But the club's president Kumar Tapan Rao told The Straits Times on Monday: 'The Rotary Club is not making any donation to any political party. We are raising funds for a project to help the elderly in Singapore.' Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
