Association for Sungei Road Market issues statement to clarify current status on its relocation

This is a statement issued on behalf of the Association for the Recycling of Second Hand Goods, in consultation with the Association’s President, Mr Koh Eng Khoon.

It has come to our attention that there are several news report circulating in the printed mass media today (12 July) about the plans for the Sungei Market to move to Golden Mile Tower Carpark by this Saturday (15 July). As of today, we are still trying to resolve the many issues related to the move that was announced on 10 July when Sungei Road Market was closed.

The Association’s President was informed of the reported news by supporters as he is not able to read, and we are deeply concerned.

Therefore we would like to clarify the following:

1. We were in discussion and had yet to reach any contractual agreement with LHN to operate at the proposed carpark premises. No rental payment have been made or transacted. We have only mentioned the estimated rent would cost around $10,000 for each month of operation.

2. We are in the process of understanding the URA requirements. We do not know the procedures required by the planning authorities nor do we know which relevant departments to seek this approval. As such, no official application has been made yet.

3. We hope people will understand that we have only operated within the free hawking zone for many years. We do not have the experience outside of this area and we are unfamiliar with many of the official processes.

4. We sincerely seek the assistance of the authorities and the public to help us find an alternative area for the displaced Sungei Road Market vendors to operate collectively as one community. We simply wish to be able to maintain our livelihood.

  • Ask Masagos & Amy to help!:

    That’s the least they can do!

    If they can vacate the Sungei Road vendors so effectively, they can also facilitate licensing the site the vendors have managed to secure on their own.

    Don’t bully the Ordinary Singaporeans please.

    Singaporeans are fed up with the two of you!

  • Govt cant think!:

    Masagos help??????
    Fellow won’t even speak to them face to face in person!!!!
    It’s pathetic!!! Unbelieveable he’s too scared to do so!

    The worst part is the vendors are pushing a govt message -
    Reduce, Reuse and Recyle. Still govt not interested!!!
    Preserve heritage? Govt Still not interested!!!

    Govt interested only in destroying country with useless
    policies, when it’s not raising charges of everything.

    Well said.

    You notice that PAP MPs are slow to respond to this sort of thing? Because they earn easy money every month they must wait for the proper signals from the Govt.

    Must see where the wind blows first in other words.

    Serve themselves first!

  • WHY SO LATE:

    The statement was issued on July 12. Why has it taken so long for the statement to be published? It’s July 16 now.

    Think “Free Market” is right. Pending the approval from all the relevant fiacking Coverment snail-paced agency or department and the Golden Mile Tower Management to help these poor folks, think his suggestion of housing them “temporary” at the Istana is a damn good idea. Hopefully the Tua Pek Gong KFC President for ONCE during his LOONG years of presidency, would do something useful, concrete and beneficial to the common folks before he pat his backside to say bye bye in Sep 2017 to the Istana aka House of Cards.

  • PAP contempt of citizens:

    What rampant PAP frequent hollow talk of Inclusiveness and every Singaporean matters.

    The PAP can go and kill themselves for all the 30% care a hoot. In fact the faster they all die the better for Singapore to progress.

    When the fate of Sungei Road Market was known and the authority already said there is no further alternative is allow, none of PAP MPs & Ministers willing to help. It was left to the Association President Mr Koh to fight with authority to secure a better future for his second hand members. Mr Koh will definitely fail because he was NOT a PAP grassroots related member!

  • Bobo:

    That’s the end result of blindly supported a party. If you are still very satisfied with your current state, you will also end up one day like them – nobody can help, your voice is noise to them. Your MP Chuck you aside. Your pain and sorrow are nuisance. They will pretend to hear you only during GE. Thereafter, they removed the joker mask and said thank you for your vote.

  • Change We Must:

    PAP government says “you die your problem.” They cannot help but can acquire the Sungei Road land to sell at a highest price to top up their coffer.

    Very quick to oust livelihoods.
    Very quick to ask for $10, 000 a month rental by URA
    Very slow to zero to resolve and return livelihoods to original status
    Everything these white demons care about is $$$$$
    If all the poor struggling folks in Sungei market can collectively muster up $10, 000 a month selling knick knacks, WTF need the old free zone Sungei road for?
    Brain dead greedy white demons. Heartless, soulless, just like their wayang, crocodile tears pink mistress with man wife with jinxed holes in their black hearts.
    KARMA Sutra awaits these 2 empress dowagers every night in their bedroom to steal their breaths while sleeping.
    Strike 3..and they’re DEAD !!!

  • That's It.:

    To people who are still complacent and very statisfied with current PAP ruling, you must think for your future. Dream is sweet. Fact is urgly. There’s no mercy. Greed and evil are in their root.

    Tbh, the gov doesn’t care about the outcome/fate of the stall owners. But to make them look good in front of the public, they cannot be too direct, just by taiji-ing to golden mile everything, then letting the building management to kill these people off.

    If they are compassion gov, they could setup site, giving them aid or offering jobs.
