Law Minister K. ’s statement on yesterday’s MRT collision has attracted widespread criticism from netizens online, who fumed over Shanmugam’s remarks that Khaw has improved public transport here.

Two MRT trains collided at Joo Koon station yesterday morning, causing at least 29 people to sustain injuries. At a joint conference called to explain preliminary findings on the collision contact between two trains, SMRT and LTA revealed that the “inadvertent” disabling of a software protection feature caused one train to hit another stalled train at Joo Koon station.

Acknowledging that the “recent MRT related issues have sorely tested the public mood,” the Law Minister said in a Facebook post late last night, “People naturally ask why these problems are recurring. They are fed up, despite the overall improvement in transport.”

He also lent his support to Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan. Asserting that it “has been a tough 2 years for Boon Wan,” Shanmugam vouched that he has every confidence that Khaw will “sort things out” and “deal with the challenges.”
