WORKER’S PARTY MUST ASK RELEVANT QUESTIONS IN PARLIAMENT- SMRT BREAKDOWN AND ANNIVERSARY OF LONDON 7/7 BOMBINGS

The whole SMRT rail network broke down during evening peak hours yesterday (7/7) which affected more tan 250,000 commuters who were eager to go home hug their kids after a hard day’s work.

The official reports said it was due to a power outage in the SMRT power lines.

7 July 2015 is the 10th anniversary of the London bombings that killed 52 and injured more than 700. It was a series of bombing attacks that targeted UK’s public transport network carried out by four Al-Qaeda Islamic terrorists.

An inquiry by the UK parliament recounted the timeline of the bombings with the tube operator who attributed the initial rail failure as “power surge”.

Yesterday’s breakdown is arguably the largest public transport failure in Singapore’s history but transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew told the media this morning that there is “No need for Committee of Inquiry” despite the significance of the date. Is he 100% certain there is no link between the breakdown and the anniversary date of 7/7?

Opposition MPs in the House should buck up, do their job and grill Lui Tuck Yew for the answers to this massive transport failure instead of keeping quiet in Parliament or rousing up support for Palestinian causes which has no relevance to our bread & butter concerns.
