After it is clear that the PSP led by Dr Tan Cheng Bock would be contesting in West Coast GRC, the PAP must have felt so uneasy that they sent the DPM Heng Swee Keat all the way from the East to show face at West Coast Teban Market on Saturday, 27 June morning.
Heng Swee Keat, the MP for Tampines GRC, suddenly appearing at West Coast GRC to boost the PAP West Coast GRC team says only one thing: the PAP sees Dr Tan Cheng Bock and the PSP, now backed by the prime minister Lee Hsien Loong's brother Lee Hsien Yang, as a formidable threat.
Is the PAP feeling insecure because they know that they have not done enough for West Coast residents? Will West Coast Residents be swayed just because the DPM paid them a visit? Or will they support the PSP which has been making the effort to engage them through regular virtual meet-the-people sessions and outreach to find out their concerns and propose changes to make their lives better?
