Desmond Choo brings estate upgrading to Hougang after 20 long years
Posted by temasektimes on August 6, 2012
Though Mr Choo lost to the Workers Party’s candidate Png Eng Huat recently in the Hougang by-election, he still stayed on and worked tirelessly for the residents.
Mr Choo announced the plans during a community event at Hougang Community Club on Saturday that six blocks in Hougang Avenue 3 — 1, 2, 6, 7, 24, 25 — will fall under the Home Improvement Programme (HIP), which will target problem areas in old flats such as leakages in ceilings.
In the meantime, blocks in Hougang Avenue 5 — 320 to 328, 332 to 341 and 351 to 363 — will undergo the Neighborhood Renewal Programme (NRP)
While Mr Choo has been working hard on the ground day in and out including conducting his weekly Meet-the-People sessions at Hougang Community Club every Monday without fail, the newly-minted MP for Hougang was nowhere to be seen, heard or found.
