He had a meaningful meeting with Deputy Speaker Mr Charles Chong, Senior Minister of State for Transport, and for Communications and Information Dr Janil Puthucheary and Senior Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministers for Home Affairs & National Development Ms Sun Xueling. Amongst the issues discussed were the challenges brought on by deliberate online falsehoods.
