“There’s also something important that I want to say to you at this later stage. As we wrap up this campaign and the cooling off day looms, I fear that the PAP will be up to its usual tricks. It’s been a disappointing campaign and the PAP has spared no effort in engaging in the most revolting and vicious type of gutter politics.
The worst is Mr Lee Hsien Loong using a made up headline from the Lianhe Wanbao to attack me. How low does the PAP want to go?
But even as I cannot rebut these accusations on cooling off day, the newspapers are free to attack me as they are not bound by the rules of cooling-off days. You can be sure that they will use the opportunity to attack me.
…Yes, from out of the blue, someone, somewhere will post something about the matter and tomorrow the newspapers will all report it. The purpose is to turn you against me.
Please don’t fall for this, my friends.
I ask you all to be my eyes and ears and voice to tell your friends and neighbours not to believe the newspapers who are helping Mr Murali to get elected by spreading untrue accusations about me.”
