A PAP grassroot leader made a rant at a private closed group on Facebook lambasting Tanjong Pagar GRC MP Dr Chia Shi Lu for expecting residents to wait at their door for him.

A resident posted on the closed group said:

“Someone knock on the door, when I opened the door are 2 students wearing white telling me, MP Dr. Chia is coming, pls welcome him. I opened the door wide open and wait while washing the dishes in the kitchen, after that I ate my dinner then I go out to throw rubbish, and I saw this flyer hanging on my gate! He didn’t even press the door bell, is this call meet? So insincere!! Y he like to pop by without informing?? Like giving out flyer a week or 2 weeks before? What I dislike is why he every time like to visit resident in such late hour, cannot come in the morning? He come for the sake of coming?if he is so insincere I rather he don’t come – feeling angry”

A grassroot leader then compared MP Dr Chia Shi Lu to former Tanjong Pagar GRC MP Baey Yam Keng:

“Baey will always listen to our guide and follow where we tell him to walk… Chia, surprise surprise, always have a mind of his own. There was once we walked halfway and he decided to leave because got something on. He just left like that. And we were told to hang those stupid tags on the doors. Nobody cares after that. Follow up? Haha. If they have an issue they are always told to come to MPS themselves. No time then Bo pian leh. Welcome to chia shi Lu era…”
