This is one way to fight inflation.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who are in and out of poverty are asking their various respective MPs to order economy rice for them on their behalf.

This after it was revealed that Baey Yam Keng, MP for Tampines, can eat economy rice with meat and veggie for $2.50.

Zhup Cai Png, a local who stays in Ang Mo Kio GRC, said: “There is no other way I can beat inflation. I am asking Lee Hsien Loong help me buy.”

“Maybe still can get extra egg and gravy.”

    Yeah maybe we should open a New Ministry of Public Food, and have MP Baey in charge of cheap foods and champion the cause for our poor and low-incomers
