A People’s Action Party (PAP) Member of Parliament (MP) appears to have been the guest-of-honour at a recent bazaar organised by and for Indian nationals living in Singapore.
Photos of Geylang Serai MP Fatimah Lateef gracing the ‘NRI buzzar’ that took place at One Farrer Hotel on Friday (2 Aug) are circulating online:
The event appears to have been organised by the people running Singapore NRI Buzz – a Facebook group dedicated to Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) living in Singapore.
NRI is a term that refers to Indian nationals who hold Indian citizenship but live overseas. The term is used to describe Indian nationals who live abroad for six months or more for work, study or other purposes and is used as a tax term.
An NRI’s Indian citizenship cannot be cancelled without his approval and he is generally entitled to all the rights a Resident Indian Citizen is entitled to. NRIs who live abroad can work, study, buy property and vote in India.
