In the long lead up to the Singapore General Elections (GE) 2016, Singapore opposition parties demonstrate their double-standards in their on-going criticism of the rat infestation problem in Bukit Batok.
If we are indeed to become a country with a truly "first world parliament", then shouldn't there be consistency in our response of what the Town Council (TC) in Bukit Batok and the various agencies are doing compared to what the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC) receive. In other words, the Bukit Batok TC and various agencies should not be attacked for taking action.
See the difference .....
2012: AHTC says nothing it can do about rat problem, only concerned with upcoming by-election - applauded
Aljunied-Hougang TC applauded when rats problem ignored despite numerous complaints,
Busy with elections: “I think Mr Low is burnt out. I heard he visits Hougang at least three times a week. He should be focused ... instead of worrying about the by-election.”
2014: Takes action, deploys pest controllers, draws up measures, finds root cause - attacked just because MP had exposed WP
