‘Murali’ to become ‘Mur Ali’ in final push to reach out to Bukit Batok minority voters

Posted on 03 May 2016

This is to ensure he reaches out to all communities.


Bukit Batok residents from all walks of life, who believe in relying on strategic decisions to get ahead in life, are nodding their heads and agreeing.

This after they said changing “Murali” to “Mur Ali” will further endear the PAP candidate contesting in the Bukit Batok by-election to the minority voters, since he has already gone so far as naming himself, “Ah Mu” and “Mura Lee”.

One Bukit Batok resident, Kio See Mee, said: “Since we’re already down this slippery slope of no return where Murali has become Ah Mu and Mura Lee, he should just go all the way and call himself Mur Ali.”

“It will appeal to other minority voters he has not courted thus far.”

“And really get them to identify with an Ali.”

Other Singaporeans said this strategic pandering bodes well for Mur Ali as it is difficult these days contesting in elections as the incumbent.

Mei You Cuo, another local, said: “No one will blame you if you cannot make up your mind what your name is.”

“This is politics, after all.”
