Singapore — Workers’ Party chief Pritam Singh was praised for his sincerity and being close to the residents when he posted a picture of himself with an elderly couple, all three happily smiling, on Facebook.

“Your sincerity speaks for itself,” commented a netizen. Said another, “Looks like Mr and Mrs Lim adore you a lot.”

The Lims were the elderly couple he met on a walkabout and with whom he posed for the photo.

On Facebook on Wednesday (April 21), when he posted the photo, he wrote:

“Delighted to meet Mr and Mrs Lim during housevists this evening in a more nostalgic setting – on an old school mat!”

The photo showed Mr Singh sitting on a mat with Mr Lim, who enfolded his left arm with his hands while Mrs Lim stood, making a V-sign behind Mr Singh’s head.

“I think Mrs Lim was being cheeky with that “V” sign though!” Mr Singh wrote.
