Secretary-general of the Progress Singapore Party, Dr Tan Cheng Bock announced that his party will be having another walkabout, this time at Tekka Market on October 26.
The walkabout to come will be the party’s second.
In a Facebook post, Dr Tan announced, “On 26th october 2019, Team PSP will be at Tekka Market, from 11.30am to 1.00pm, to send our Deepavali wishes to Singaporeans. See you there!”
During PSP’s first walkabout, Dr Tan received warm responses from a receptive crowd showing positive ground sentiments.
The walkabout covering 29 Constituencies covered all four corners of Singapore. Dr Tan was spotted at two locations at Ghim Moh and Tiong Bahru. Party assistant Secretary-General Anthony Lee accompanied him at both locations.
At Tiong Baruh Market, People’s Action Party (PAP) Member of Parliament (MP) minister Indranee Rajah ran into Dr Tan while she was on her own walkabout canvassing for votes for the Tanjong Bahru GRC.
The hawkers and patrons at Tiong Bahru market gave a warm reception to Dr Tan, wishing him success and took selfies with him.
Dr Tan revealed on social media that during his first walkabout, he also ran into Jurong GRC MP Tan Wu Meng. Following the first event, Dr Tan wrote on social media: “The purpose of this walkabout was to reach out to Singaporeans, keep them informed about our new PSP party and connect with them. We distributed all our flyers and were heartened and encouraged by the warm reception that we received”.
“I joined the walkabout at Ghim Moh and Tiong Bahru. During my walkabout, we met the MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC, Ms Indranee Rajah and shook hands and exchanged pleasantries. Later over lunch with my youngest supporter, I met MP Tan Wu Meng, the MP for Jurong GRC”, he added. /TISG
