Acting like the saint he is obviously not, Tapan Rao maintains "the political dimension had not crossed his mind" when he penned the missive with a grandiose stroke of generosity. Now he wants to make it crystal clear that "the Rotary Club is not making any donation to any political party." Which happens to be quite true, since the letter spells out clearly that the "Rotary Club of Singapore will be happy to work with you and your team" to "raise funds necessary to retrofit toilets." If Desmond had expected a fat check for $100K to land on his desk ("Choo's toilet upgrade project gets $100,000 donation", ST Breaking News, 24 May 2012), he will be in for another rude surprise. Coming so soon right after his dashed hopes of May 26th, that should be enough make a grown man cry.
Tan demanded to know, "Now that PAP Desmond lost to WP Png in the election, what is the Rotary Stand?" Sorry, Mr Former Presidential Candidate, the offer was good only for "work with you and your team", as in Desmond, not Png. As an ex-PAP backbencher, surely he knows how the game is played.
