UGL Premas and CPG Corporation

Facts about UGL Premas, the Managing Agent of Jurong Town Council:

UGL1) General Manager of Jurong Town Council = Managing Director of the Managing Agent of the Jurong Town Council = PAP branch secretary of Bukit Batok East

2) Notable quote by a Jurong Resident’s complain[Source]: Mr. Ho Thian Poh is the Managing Director of UGL Premas, so obviously the increased costs resulting from the works would be beneficial to his company. And since he also happens to be the General Manager of the Jurong Town Council, it must also mean that he had approved of such an illogical and costly renovation plan.

The whole scheme just stinks of bureaucratic corruption.
