Others are scared that they might be re-selected again for PLKN even though they escaped the entire ordeal. Netizens see this as a program that should not resurface as there used to be a number of problems involving this whole national service.
Netizens joked that a new father might have to leave his wife and kids to enter this national service program. Furthermore, if the requirement were to increase to those 10 years older, a father and son combo might happen.
