PAP’s Janil Puthucheary: “I did not do NS… those are the facts”

Andrew Loh /

New People’s Action Party (PAP) candidate, Dr Janil Puthucheary, says that he “felt it was important to step up and stand forward to advocate on behalf of those who can’t do so for themselves, or aren’t heard.” He was responding to a question posed to him on his Facebook page on what he thought of Mr Chen Show Mao (Workers’ Party’s potential candidate) serving his National Service (NS), while he did not.

“I did not do NS, Mr Chen did, those are the facts, yes,” he said.

Dr Janil is 38-years old and is a pediatrician. He received his Singapore citizenship three years ago.

Mr Chen, 50, was born in Taiwan and moved to Singapore when he was 11-years old. Mr Chen had volunteered to serve his NS before he became a Singapore citizen in 1986.
