"Holistic set of measures" : MP for Moulmein-Kallang GRC Denise Phua on Committee of Inquiry report on the Little India riot


A "holistic set of measures" - that's how MP for Moulmein-Kallang GRC Denise Phua has described Monday's Committee of Inquiry report on the Little India riot. 

Ms Phua, who oversees the area, has been lobbying for stricter crowd control and alcohol restrictions. 

She says residents are hoping for more long-term measures to maintain public order in Little India. 

She agrees there should be stricter enforcement of public drunkenness, especially in shared spaces. 

On the flip side, business owners say they are suffering. 

Since restrictions to the sale and consumption of alcohol were put in place in Little India, business owners say revenue has drastically gone down. 

But there may be new opportunities for smaller businesses to expand, as authorities spread out the availability of services and amenities, for foreign workers.
