WP’s Pritam Singh said these in Parliament on the changes of the President Elections Act.

“Language is an important criteria that is inextricably tied to race”.

“Should a presidential candidate who sees himself as part of the Indian community pass muster if he or she can barely get by in Tamil or the other MOE (Ministry of Education) recognised Indian languages?”

Is he suggesting that Singaporeans who doesn’t know how to speak.write their mother tongue shouldn’t be in the race they are in and shouldn’t be in the community they are in because they barely speak their mother tongue?

We do know many Singaporeans who doesn’t speak their mother tongues leh…Win liao lor!
