Why the delay in upgrading opposition ward?
IT HAS been almost a year since Senior Minister of State for National Development Grace Fu announced that the Government's Lift Upgrading Programme (LUP) would be launched in the two opposition wards of Potong Pasir and Hougang.
The news thrilled residents like me, who live in the selected LUP precinct of Potong Pasir constituency. It gave us much cause for excitement.
However, this euphoria seems to be evaporating as no work has been done.
There is not even an announcement of a date when work is to begin. I am starting to wonder if the project is on track or if some unexpected problems have cropped up.
I hope the Potong Pasir Town Council or the Citizens Consultative Committee can enlighten residents.
Let our constituency be a model of how an ugly duckling can be transformed into a beautiful swan.

The behaviour of our MIW is just plain childish.
Lift upgrade should not be use as a carrot to buy vote.
People staying in opposition ward deserve every right for facilities upgrade as they pay taxes too!
If our MIW have to resolve into this dirty method to force people out of opposition wards then all I can say is what a sorry state our county is in.
