The former Singaporean
leader 
also believes that it is not necessary to telleverything to the
 people
at all time. “My
 job
is to persuade my
 people
to the right
way
.And sometimes, it may be necessary not to tell them all the
 facts
 because it will scarethem.”
 Lee
ways also that he has “never been concerned or obsessed with
ipinion polls
or 
 popularity poll.”
He believes that a
leader 
who is concerned with his
 popularity
is a weak 
leader. Lee
is credited with developing
Singapore
from a mere British trading
outpost 
intoone of the world’s richest
countries.
