MP for Aljunied GRC, Chen Shao Mao prevented from attending Seventh Month dinner
MP for Aljunied GRC, Chen Shao Mao prevented from attending Seventh Month dinner

Member of Parliament for Aljunied GRC, Chen Shao Mao, has revealed in a facebook posting on Saturday 19 Aug 2011 that he had been scheduled to attend a Seventh Month dinner in the Paya Lebar ward last week but organisers had called him a few weeks earlier to inform him that they could no longer invite him.

In his facebook posting, MP for Aljunied GRC Chen Shao Mao, THE ELECTED MP of Aljunied GRC by the Aljunied GRC voters said :-

The organizers as in previous years had planned to hold the festivities on a hard court in the HDB estate, but this year were told by the Paya Lebar CCC (Citizens' Consultative Committee under the People's Association) that, as a condition for receiving CCC approval to use the venue, they may no longer invite their MP to the event. Future approvals will be withheld from errant organizers. The organizers were profusely apologetic. It pains me that they felt so embarrassed to pass me the news. Regrettably, this is not the first time it has happened since I was elected. See photos of an invitation and retraction from another distraught organizer who applied to use a different venue in the same ward. "

Some readers who came to know about this and email us to share their disappointment and deeply wonder if they should follow any calls of being "gracious" by any PAP leaders in future.

One thing that indignant readers do learn in this episode is the true gracious quality of a real leader like elected Aljunied GRC MP Chen Shao Mao in his end statement - "That is all fine by me... there is really no call to force our residents into a quandary over whom they may invite as guests to their own events," he concluded.
