Prime Minister faced the brunt of criticism from netizens after a stool at Teck Ghee Market & Food Centre, at the ward helmed by PM Lee, fell apart, injuring an elderly man.

The stools at the market were reportedly glued together, and not bolted together. The top of the seat had peeled off, reportedly causing an elderly man to fall off and injure himself in the process.

A social media post earlier today showed that the top of the seat was held together with glue.

According to another netizen who shared photos of the area a few hours after the incident, workers were seen bolting the top of the seat back to the bottom of the stool.

Netizens also had a lot to say on the manner and were outraged at the poor workmanship of the recently-renovated market. /TISG
