The blogger Sudhir Vadaketh was reiterating Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam's call for the opposition to be speaking out more about racism and xenophobia in Singapore. Not surprisingly, Sudhir Vadaketh stops short of highlighting Progress Singapore Party founder Tan Cheng Bock past xenophobic remarks in 2004 where Tan alluded to foreign migrant workers as being problematic and unhygienic. Tan had spoken against the Government plans at the time to house foreign workers in Singapore's public estates. He felt that dormitories should be built "on reserved land, a distance away from public housing" so they can be "better controlled and also there will be less disturbance." Sudhir's shielding of PSP comes on the back of his close relationship with Lee Hsien Yang's son who he described as his "whisky kaki". Lee is a member of PSP and a good friend of Tan Cheng Bock.
