Outcry over upgrading poll lucky draw in Eunos under Workers Party

Posted by temasektimes on October 5, 2012

A massive outcry has erupted among Eunos residents over the handling of a upgrading poll lucky draw by Aljunied-Hougang Town Council.

Some residents have expressed their unhappiness that they have been excluded from the lucky draw and wondered if the vote was secret, as those who had voted “yes” qualified for the lucky draw.

Responding to queries from the media, Aljunied-Hougang Town Council gave a nonchalant reply that a 22-page booklet for a Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP) in Eunos Spring of Aljunied GRC had made it known that all eligible households who voted “yes” would automatically qualify for a lucky draw.

During the exercise, 79 per cent, or 2,188 households, voted for the upgrading project.

There were no replies from the Workers Party MP in charge of Eunos, Pritam Singh, who as usual, is nowhere to be heard, seen or found.

Pritam Singh was embroiled in a controversy lately by quarreling with his former party comrade Andrew Loh Hong Puey on his Facebook.

    A massive outcry? where?
    Some residents? Who have you interviewed?
    The last sentence is irrelevant.
    So much about TT

    • KekSim A Lang said

      Ya lor….so much about TT!!! Looks like TT got hidden agenda!!!

      • Bai Hu said

        Precisely. Seems like TT is a strong supporter of other opposition parties & wanna put WP down. Reading all their articles makes all these agenda obvious.

        Mod’s note:

        WP is NOT an opposition party. It is on the SAME side as the PAP. Wake up!

    The lucky draw was not started by WP. It has been part of NRP program so please get your facts right otherwise you will lose whatever little credibility that you have left.

    • SgGuy said

      We should all unite with all oppositions and to rid the common threat instead of discrediting internally. What a shame!

      Mod’s note:

      The ‘Wayang Party’ is NOT an opposition party. It is on the SAME side as the PAP, aka the PAP’s subsidiary party:

      ‘If the PAP fails to win a majority in the next GE, the Workers Party will form a coalition govt with it (to keep it in power)’

      – PAP’s ‘B’ team MP Pritam Singh, May 2011

      You vote for WP to boot out the PAP, but it will end up with WP sleeping in bed together with the PAP. Is this the outcome you desire?

      • Occupy SG said

        You guys have lost your way big time. If you think that running a Town Council is a piece of cake, it’s about time you guys come forward and be counted. What can you do with 8 in parliament against the overwhelming majority? Whatever opposition WP made the PAP will still bulldozed their way through! All I can say is that you guys are killing the Opposition Cause by lambasting WP. Just a loose cannon blasting away at friends instead of foe. There is absolutely no ground for your stance until democracy is won and taken back from the PAP’s grip. But again, who among you have any objectivity of mind to understand this?

    • Jaded said

      TT has no credibility, they are the PAP Internet Brigade, the ‘B’ team of the PAP pretending to support the SDP when their aim is to split the votes of the opposition. They were inactive these few days i thought they closed down liao. But not true, wasted…

      • Naivety said

        At first I thot that both the Editor in Chief & Moderator of TT have been assassinated by “Aliens” already for their past comments as they were very quiet & docile for the last few days…but at last, it turns out that it is due to their server’s hosting fault & they do not have any contingency or disaster recovery plans in place.

      • mahbok tan said

        AGREE . We here have been saying that TT are their (PAP) cybertroopers , being paid to provide feedback to their pay master.
        We just come here to read and express what we feel is right or wrong. The rest its their responsibilities towards their paymaster.

    • Me said

      WP had a ahrd time to win and be in parliament. …no reason to do things detrimental … Be objective, lah !

  3. Observer said

    Please lah..u whack WP for what? U want Aljunied GRC back for PAP? Super bias leh.

    Mod’s note:

    The real opposition parties like SDP and RP should contest in Aljunied in 2016 to boot out the PAP’s ‘B’ team aka the useless ‘Wayang Party’. A vote for WP = A vote for PAP! Please wake up!

    • Now its clear ... said

      Ah … now we know TT is aligned with SDP and RP – the losers, and likely continuing losers. TT is occasionally aligned with the PAP as well if that means an opportunity to run down the WP!

    • flere000 said

      Dear Mod,

      How do you DEFINE a REAL opposition party?

      Mod’s note:

      A party which dares to speak the truth and check on the ruling party. It is as simple as that. Do you see the present ‘Wayang Party’ clowns doing that in parliament other than giving their PAP masters a blowjob? A vote for WP = A vote for PAP! Boycott the ‘Wayang Party’ and switch your support to other real opposition parties like SDP and RP now!

  4. Submitter69 said

    Seems like the PAP bootlickers WP has gotten from bad to worse.

  5. JeoJeo said

    hi TT, IS THIS NEW MEDIA phenomenon to spice up what u dislike or disagree?
    should call this ill media

  6. Johnny Toh said

    @mod : You finally found something to post and bash the WP again. Good job.

  7. R Usha said

    • Jack said

      ai yah, is like dat one. I posted on Ah Ser Luck FB after I read that Misster Heng said Ministers must reply posting. Ah Ser Luck also no reply leh/

  8. Fark The PAPpies said

    Poor TT.

    Seems to have little support from readers trying to bash WP.

    WP is NOT the enemy of the people.

    The party deem the enemy of Singaporeans and traitors of the country starts with a letter ‘P’ and ends with another ‘P’.

    Got it ????

  9. ex sdp supporter said

    Now it’s clear! Temasek times and sdp are “b” teams of wp! They support pap and bash the only opposition left.. Sorry sdp you are no better if not worst than both pap and wp and that is a fact. Building upon other’s inefficiency is just what pap does every election and sdp wants to do the same isn’t it obvious sdp is pap’s “b” team? If not prove your readers wrong and for once say something constructive to gain your pathetic sdp some credibility. Stealing 6 seats from wp does not help sdp or wp it helps pap. Steal the 81 seats and leave the 6 that’s already fighting for Singaporeans no matter how timid they are. They are not the ones that needs to be replaced get your directions right! It would be pathetic to see sdp go against wp it just shows how equally incapable sdp is becos they are afraid of their big boss pap.

    Mod’s note:

    You are deluded. The PAP has ALL 87 seats in parliament now including the 6 from its subsidiary party which does nothing but ‘wayang’ in parliament. Even the PAP backbenchers are more vocal than the useless ‘wayang’ clowns who are enjoying the best time of their lives now with their fat MP allowance.

    TEMESEK TIMES HAS ALREADY SEEN A MAJOR DROP IN PEOPLE COMMENTING HERE. SOON YOU WILL SEE A COMPLETE ZERO COMMENTS BECAUSE TT IS NOW TEAM B OF THE SHIT TIMES… TT, YOU HAVE SOLD YOUR SOULS TO THE DEVIL.

    outcry from tt and their jealous cousins

  12. kitto said

    TTT, I thought you were dead after no nonsense for a few days. Full of crab.

    • Johnny Toh said

      They are not dead at all. They are constantly looking for WP faults to post in here, with additional sentences written by the mod himself.

  13. Dragon said

    Many of the VIP top were elected waiting for retirement and keep quite also.So dun said u dun had that one ,u also dun had that one.Wait for the final show.

  14. sg citizen said

    I am not supporter of WP, but it’s clearly that TT’s moderator has very bad taste.

    To TT’s moderator, please open your mind. Perhaps, you shoud read the recent article posted by Bloomberg.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-02/sylvia-lim-in-opposition-praising-singapore-economy-seeks-change.html

    They are many ways to fight for better Singapore.

    Mod’s note:

    This article is more than sufficient proof that the useless ‘Wayang’ Queen is a closet PAP admirer and NOTHING will change so long these clowns continue to hoodwink naive Singaporeans like yourself into believing that they will challenge the status quo. A vote for WP = A vote for PAP!

    • spank dopey said

      @ TT Mod,
      I agree WP can be more vocal, can execute more in-your-face type approach when dealing with MIW……
      BUT have you considered the possibility they are using the “Rope a Dope ” strategy ?
      Afterall, it is Dopey the PM that we are talking about and Dopey must be given encouragement to come out of his shell before a severe spanking can be dished out to him, right ?
      When that day comes, I will wager many will queue up to spank him !

  15. lim peh v2.0 said

    Welcome back TT! I missed your sensational headliners and WP bashing in the time you were gone. Don’t get me wrong, I miss you not like a long lost friend but more like the slightly crazed uncle who swears at everyone.

  16. skponggol said

    No wonder the Aljunied-Hougang is so mismangaed, with rats running around and rubbish uncleared…

    These Hammerrhoids have squandered all their money on lucky draws and holding meaningless straw polls…They have wasted all their manpower and resources doing door knocking and senseless advertisement.

    The so-called “First World” town would be much better if the resources have been much more focused.

  17. Apply TT mod said

    @Mod – I’m jobless now, how to apply for your post? I believe I will be ‘handsomely rewarded’ by our masters for such easy bashing job.
