Lui Tuck Yew seen riding public transport again
NEW Minister for Transport Lui Tuck Yew was once again spotted taking the public transportation. This time, he was seen riding a MRT train during morning rush hour on Monday.
A commuter identified only as Nat snapped photos of the minister after seeing him in the crowded train, and posted them on citizen journalism website STOMP.
Nat said: 'I snapped pictures of him on the train this morning at 7.45am, on the North South line heading towards Jurong East at Bukit Gombak. Welcome to the crowd!'
Mr Lui was last week seen riding a public bus last Tuesday, and photos of the sighting were also posted on STOMP.
The story on STOMP on Monday drew a mixed reaction, however, with 35 per cent of feedback expressing scepticism as of 11.20am.
However, the general sentiment in the comments section seemed largely positive. Said STOMPer thnufilo: 'Hurray, Mr Lui Tuck Yew is so down to earth. At least he did both bus and mrt. He's one of us!'
