What did independence mean for Singapore?
Responses and feelings of the people who went through independence
Some of the Ministers were shocked, crestfallen, unexpected. Some of them felt that the situation was getting more tense day by day. A great disappointment was shown on many people's faces because they had been fighting for Malaysia all along, since the starting of PAP everyone was heart broken, some even stated that it was the crushing of their dreams because many believed in merger and the unity of two territories. It broke everything they stood for, even for Mr Lee Kuan Yew. Many feared how they could move on without Malaysia.
