On 10 July 2020, residents of Sengkang GRC voted for The Workers Party (WP) to represent them in Parliament and also to handle their municipal matters. PAP has a Municipal Office App called "One Service" where residents can take photographs and report such matters for action. I am of the opinion that PAP will make it difficult for residents to highlight such matters by directing the residents to report directly to WP. May I suggest that WP designs a similar app to report municipal matters for Aljunied & Sengkang GRCs and Hougang SMC so that residents in their respective WP Town Councils can submit cases to for prompt action. I hope WP will implement this humble suggestion of mine.Read More »
