Mrs Goh Chok Tong insensitive statment sign now

In regards to NKF's patron Mrs Goh Chok Tong as quoted saying in response to whether if Mr Durai pay was too "excessive" in the news article that appeared in the Home part of The Straits Times on Wednesday July 13, 2005.

"For a person whos runs a million-dollar charitable organisation, $600,000 is peanuts as it has a few hundred millions in reserves"

I personally felt that this sentence was totally unexpected to be coming from the wife of Singapore Senior Prime Minister. The $600,000 is public fund. Money which people earned with their sweat and blood. It was insensitive to say it was peanuts.

My father would take 20 years to earn $600,000. To us it is a big sum of money. That statment has become a joke on the street. With people buying things with peanut powder as the most common one.

A personal and open apology should be made to the public from Mrs Goh.

Note. This is not a attack on Singapore Government.

    No doubt its just $600,000, this still consider as public fund. Moreover,this is a non-profitable organization. How can a CEO get paid for such a big amount??? using public funds???

    She should apologise to the public of Singapore. It is very insensitive, unethical and obnoxiously rude of her to make such a statement. What audacity she has to say all these, without even thinking for a second how it would affect the general public.

    600k is not a small sum, it takes life for some people to earn that amount. Moreover, NKF is a charity organisation! not for some ppl to earn alot. No excuses!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If he wants to earn alot, he go to a profit organisation, not NKF- a non-profitabl

    Mr GCT spent his life being the people's prime minister. Mrs GCT destroyed that with one careless statement, which perhaps reflects their true sentiments towards the working population. I feel that people who regard amounts such as this to be peanuts can,
