DPM Teo raps Low Thia Kiang: I hope he will move away from his ‘combative tone’
Posted by temasektimes on May 28, 2012
Mr Low has earlier accused DPM Teo of unfairly attacking the integrity of MP-elect for Hougang Png Eng Huat during a press conference on Saturday:
“About the allegation made by the Deputy Prime Minister… the headings and titles are all aiming towards character assassination. Certain facts that he has spoken about were reported but hidden somewhere in the article. Who’s going to read?”
However a day later, Mr Low struck a conciliatory tone and said he wants to move on from the by-election and focus on working together with the PAP to build a better Singapore.
When asked about Mr Low’s offer to make peace with the PAP, DPM Teo retorted:
“He had a very combative tone last night which really, really surprised. But I do hope that he will move away from the combative tone which he took during the by-election and work in a constructive way with the government.”
Mr Low has always portrayed himself as a ‘constructive’ opposition MP who does not oppose for the sake of opposing which earned him praises from former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew who said he finds him ‘agreeable’.
