SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has called on Singaporeans to "learn the lessons" from the Little India riot and "follow-up thoroughly to prevent it from happening again".
In a Facebook post on Monday, Mr Lee pointed to Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean's statement in Parliament and Acting Minister Tan Chuan-Jin's speech on foreign worker issues.
"They answered many questions from MPs which are on people's minds," he said. "The riot was our worst such incident in four decades.”
Mr Lee added: "Luckily, our Home Team brought the situation under control without firing a single shot and without any fatalities."
