However, when one homeless Singaporean William approached his MP for Moulmein-Kallang GRC Edwin Tong (pic left, source: Facebook) for help, he was shown a ‘sour’ face and was turned away.
Disappointed and frustrated by the response of his MP, William posted a comment on the Workers Party’s Facebook page to vent his anger:
“When it is my turn to see him at 10pm regarding about HDB matters for a second time, his face immediately turn SOUR and seen very reluctant (corrected) to help ordinary people like me to get a rental HDB flat who is at a stage of being homeless.”
He asked if he has to go to Sembawang GRC to seek the help of National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan in person since his own MP refused to help him, adding that some MPs are very ‘hypocritical':
“At election time, they promise you if they get elected, they will do this for you but as for me, it turn out to be empty promises…Some MPs I must say it is very amazing that in Singapore who make no contributions at all to the well-being of their fellow constituents”
There are no response from the Workers Party to Mr William’s post. Both Mr William and Mr Tong did not reply to our queries on the incident at the publication of this article.
