Mr Fazli Talip who was Workers’ Party’s (WP) candidate in the 2011 General Election but has since resigned from the political party, has called WP Member of Parliament (MP) Pritam Singh a “clown”.
Mr Fazli contested in the East Coast GRC in the 2011 election but resigned soon after, citing personal and work commitments as reasons for his departure.

Mr Fazli probably not realising that Mr Singh’s comment about SAF regulars and NSmen was a witty one, said that requiring the men in the Forces “pay for parking space in camps is totally a bad idea” and labeled Mr Singh “clown”.
Describing how it is not practical for NSmen to park away from their camps, and it is also a bad idea, Mr Fazli made a prediction that the opposition party may lose Aljunied GRC because they have incapable MPs in that constituency.

Another clown from the WP side. Made such comparison without thinking. By making NSMen to pay for parking space in…
