Look at The Alternative View blaming the rat infestation at the Jurong West Market and Food centre at Desmond Lee.
Why not blame the stall owners for not keep the area clean that attract the rats to breed in the first place? Moreover, if Desmond Lee didn’t take care of the problem, why are they eradicating the rats? Isn’t that taking care of the problem?!
Mr Ang Wei Neng, chairman of the Jurong-Clementi Town Council, told TNP that the exercise did not arise from feedback or complaints from residents, but was part of a routine maintenance programme to improve the overall hygiene of the markets and food centres.
“We carry out pest-control treatment (rodents and cockroaches) during the quarterly market washing,” he said.
Mr Ang, who is also MP for Jurong GRC, said they managed to encourage the cooked food and market stall holders to engage the same pest control company to conduct treatments within their stalls.
“The stall holders are taking this exercise seriously as they want to present a clean environment to their customers,” he said.
