Outcry over upgrading poll lucky draw in Eunos under Workers Party
Posted by temasektimes on October 5, 2012
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.
