SUPP's "Development For Better" is a very old theme. But it is absolutely relevant and most down-to-earth.
However, in the present circumstances when electorate is entangled with burning issues like land lease and livelihood, the development theme has become much less touching. In other words, promise of development has been far outweighed by the emotional outburst of discontent.
In a matter of less than two months, I have encountered several cases of land-related issues affecting the ordinary folks, the latest being an outright rejection for renewal of land lease. When they almost burst into tears, although I felt for them, I ran so very out of words.
When I shared with them about development in economic sense, dismally they told me from the bottom of their hearts: Development is much less meaningful to us now!
Instantly I turned speechless!
