PAP MP Seah Kian Peng urges Singaporeans to participate in ‘National Conversation’
Posted by temasektimes on September 7, 2012
Since Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong launched a ‘National Conversation’ for Singaporeans during his National Day Rally, the state media has gone on a propaganda overdrive to promote yet another PR ‘gimmick’ from the ruling party.
PAP ministers and MPs have been imploring Singaporeans to join in the ‘conversation’ with the latest coming from Marine parade MP Seah Kian Peng who said the National Conversation would be ‘all-encompassing’.
“We have to give it a go, and I also ask people to give it a go. It cannot do us any harm, it can only do us good. All those sitting on the sidelines and not taking part, they are missing and opportunity where all of us want to shape the kind of Singapore we want,” Mr Seah said.
He encouraged Singaporeans to share the kind of Singapore they want:
“Everyone out there has a vision of the kind of Singapore we want, be part of this, come join us, come create the Singapore we want for all of us and our children.”
Despite the media hype over it, REACH Chairwoman Dr Amy Khor warned that while the government will ‘listen’ to the views offered by Singaporeans, not all of them will be looked into and accepted.
