Lui Tuck Yew should take responsibility for frequent trains breakdown #sgpolitics #sgpresident #sgelection #sgelections

The Reform Party calls for a Commission of Inquiry to be convened into the causes of and handling of the breakdown of SMRT’s service on Thursday night. SMRT has claimed that the breakdown was beyond its control. Without pre-judging the results of the inquiry it is clear that SMRT’s current resources are stretched to breaking point by the government’s decision to increase our population so drastically through immigration while neglecting to invest in adequate infrastructure. This breakdown is not an isolated incident but is becoming a frequent occurrence. SMRT’s emergency response also completely failed which is especially worrying if there is a more serious accident. Staff were inadequately trained to cope with an emergency. All are symptomatic of complacent management secure in the knowledge that they face no competition or properly independent regulation.
