Embattled PAP MP Seng Han Thong claimed his "well-intended" remarks "taken out of context" by TOC:

SINGAPORE, Dec 25 (Bernama) -- Singapore Member of Parliament for Ang Mo Kio Group Representative Constituency (GRC), Seng Han Thong, has sought to allay concerns and clear the air with transport workers over his comments in Channel NewsAsia's BlogTV slot. The local media quoted Seng as saying his wish to defend the workers was further taken out of context and misconstrued by portal The Online Citizen. Seng, who shared these views in a Facebook post on Saturday, stressed that he never had any intention to belittle or push the blame of the recent MRT breakdown to the workers of SMRT.
