It looks like Gan Kim Yong still has a long way to go to forge a bond with his residents.
At a Bursary Award presentation last week at Chua Chu Kang for which he was the Guest of Honour, the crowd was in a hurry to leave after accepting the award, despite the fact that the presentation was still going on.
Towards the end of the ceremony, there was not a single soul left in the hall and no one to applaud the last few recipients or chat with Gan.
To solve this problem, maybe Gan Kim Yong should learn from Chan Chun Sing by asking his loyal grassroots to sit in as audience in return for free chicken rice?
Or is this a sign of the electorate’s frustration and lack of respect for the ruling party? Have Choa Chu Kang residents had enough of the PAP and are ready to vote them out?
What do you think?
