Continuing on PAP’s crusade to attack the WP on AHPETC, Law and Foreign Affairs Minister K Shanmugam said that the WP had tried to run away from the issues.
“The High Court said that (WP Chairman) Sylvia Lim misled Parliament, was dishonest. She has not responded to that,” said Mr Shanmugam.
“What is her answer? Is it okay to mislead the people of Singapore and mislead Parliament?”
“I think they have tried to run away from the issues yet again,” added Mr Shanmugam, who was joined by his other team members contesting for the GRC, including Dr Lee Bee Wah, Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Mr Henry Kwek and Mr Louis Ng.
He added that the WP chose to speak about the issue in a rally because they “cannot be asked questions” in that setting.
“The rally is the place they choose because at rallies you can’t be asked questions. In Parliament, (WP candidate) Pritam Singh says he won’t answer questions because anything he says can be questioned,” said the Law Minister.
“So they run away from questions in Parliament, run away from questions from the media, then they take the rally stage and say all sorts of things. Let Singaporeans think about it.”
