PSP leader Dr Tan Cheng Bock and member Lee Hsien Yang were seen at the same coffeeshop just 20 minutes earlier. Passionate residents were seen chanting their support for both parties in the video, with PAP supporters calling out “PAP!” as PSP supporters responded with “Tan Cheng Bock!” When asked about the commotion, Faishal told The Straits Times that he saw it as a sign the residents have forged a bond with him, "And at the end of the day, when they see things like these happening, they come and support us.”
