ESM Goh Chok Tong lashed out at Workers’ Party’s Png Eng Huat in Parliament today for merely reading out quotes from Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling’s Facebook instead of stating his position on the issue. “Anyone can simply read. That is akin to spreading rumour. As an honourable Member of Parliament, he should state his position on what he has read. That is what we are elected as MPs for – to have a clear view on issues”.
He invited Low Thia Kiang and other opposition MPs to state their stance clearly regarding PM Lee and the Government’s integrity.
Nevertheless, he also agreed with them that allegations against the PM are baseless, calculated, and should be stopped.
