Plans to build upon the good work of predecessor: Koh Poh Koon

SINGAPORE: The People’s Action Party’s (PAP) candidate for the Punggol East by—election Koh Poh Koon has emphasised that he has plans for Punggol East residents and build upon the good work of his predecessor.

Addressing the last PAP rally on Thursday evening, Dr Koh said his plans include mobilising youths to assist the vulnerable, complete the upgrading of Rivervale Plaza, have a Community Club, expand local childcare places, and push for better connectivity.

Dr Koh also responded to comments made online about himself and his campaign over the past few days.

"Walking the ground for the last nine days has showed me that the real world out there is different from what is existing in cyberspace.

"I feel the warmth of people I have touched. I feel the passion of people in Punggol East. I feel the warm reception.

"The real world out there is different from cyberspace; these are people with real needs, with real problems, people who have passion and touch you and show you what it is like to be a fellow citizen of Singapore," he said.
