Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to take public transport because cars are for rich people, have come out to assure Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan everything is okay.

This after Khaw previously eviscerated the mainstream media in Singapore for playing up the MRT system down times and making it appear that thousands of Singaporeans were inconvenienced and negatively affected as public transport services ground to a snail’s pace.

One Singaporean, Hong Gan Leow, said: “No worries, Minister Khaw Boon Wan. All the mainstream media reports you are seeing now are fake news.”

“Do not be influenced by these negative reports of how the extended travelling time is one hour and the stations are crowded with people during peak hour.”

“Everything is normal and okay. No problem.”

Other locals said any reports about congestion and overcrowded conditions can be dismissed as fake news and are inaccurate.

Another local, Pian Lang, said: “Minister Khaw, do not be easily swayed by these irresponsible media reports of thousands of Singaporeans being affected at the same time as they struggle to go home or go out on a Friday night.”

“Who can be right in this instance? Thousands of Singaporeans witnessing the breakdown at the same time or you?”

“Without a doubt, of course it is you.”

“You can never be wrong.”

“Don’t be lied to by these irresponsible people and fake media.”
