PM Lee: Discussions on ‘Our Singapore’ are off to a ‘good start’

In a comment posted on his Facebook, PM Lee urged Singaporeans to participate in the exercise:
“Do take part, and share your views on the Singapore you would like to see, a Singapore which we can all be proud of.”
The committee was led by Education Minister Heng Swee Keat who outlined the approach of the committee that will spearhead the large-scale effort to involve citizens in charting the basis of future policies, programmes and action plans.
However, no opposition politicians were invited to sit on the committee including the tame and timid Workers Party MPs who are widely regarded as belonging to the PAP’s ‘B team’.
Despite the state media going on a massive propaganda overdrive to publicize it, responses from netizens have been lukewarm so far with many dismissing it as another PR gimmick to manage public expectations and perceptions.
