Dr Chee Soon Juan, the candidate identified by Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) to contest the by-election in Bukit Batok, shared in his Facebook about the power trip which affected the Bukit Batok MRT station.
His Facebook admin also did a public service announcement in all 4 official languages to inform residents about the disruption in service in that area. His post has about 1000 likes and shared over 400 times.
Over 200 people also commented in his post. Most comments were appreciative of Dr Chee and wished that he won the contest in that constituency. Some asked what can be done to prevent such frequent train disruptions.
The next morning Dr Chee made his way to the station again at about 8.30 am and said that trains were up and running smoothly at the station at that time.
The People’s Action Party’s candidate for Bukit Batok was nowhere in sight during the power outage in the MRT station. Either on the day of the disruption or the following morning. He had however mobilised his Party volunteers to see how they can help commuters who were caught in the train system malfunction. His volunteers however were like a rudderless ship and seemed unsure about how they could help the commuters.
They had remembered to dress in party colours (white-and-white) and had brought torchlights with them. But they seemed to be shining the torchlights when the place seemed to be lighted well-enough.

Or shining them when there was no one in sight.

Murali had previously said
that he is not too keen on ramping up house visits to engage residents.
“It’s not about going round and making sure that you clear all the houses, that’s not my focus. It’s really to see and interact with our residents, find out what they’re concerned about and having conversations,” he said.
