Is the PAP prepared for this by election, knew that it is coming? Who knows better, but PAP is surely more prepared than the SDP or Tharman would not be using this as a strong point to use against the SDP. SDP is unprepared, heheh, we are. PAP is prepared and ready for the by election with its new programme launched by Murali. Is the new programme similar to the programme David Ong promised the residents of Bukit Batok? Some numbers were quoted, that David Ong’s programme was very comprehensive and amounting to $24m while Murali was talking about $1.9m. Please enlighten me on this. Oh, before I forget, let me use the often uttered phrase by the rich people. What is $1.9m? This is even less than one year’s salary of a minister. Maybe Murali was talking about a small portion of the programme or the $24m was the whole programme that includes other constituencies. SDP must be forgiven for being in the dark about this whole affair as they were not a party to it. Sure, they don’t know.
A word of advice to all the opposition parties, please be prepared for more by elections and not be caught with their pants down and got to make last minute plans and programme changes. The PAP is always prepared for all contingencies like surprise by elections. This is something that the opposition parties can learn from.
Ok, SDP, please admit that you did not see it coming and therefore not prepared for it, unless they knew what was happening in Bukit Batok’s grassroot affairs.
