I went to campaign in Yunlin today. This was also the first weekend after the opening of the Yunlin High Speed Rail (HSR) Station. There seemed to be ‘buy one get one free’ discount [on the fares]. It was full of people and everyone looked happy.
[When I was Premier,] the Taiwan HSR project ran out of funding before completion. I diverted part of the Aviation Development Association fund to the HSR project. I was put through the ordeal of an investigation* as a result but ensured the successful completion and opening of the HSR. It looks like I made the right decision at that time.
* The investigation did not find any wrong doing.

‘When I was Premier, the THSR fund ran out. I moved another fund to cover the shortfall.’
