Allegation of abuse of power

In their joint statement of 14 June, Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang accused their elder brother, Lee Hsien Loong of abusing his power as prime minister to thwart Lee Kuan Yew's wish for his private house 38 Oxley Road to be demolished after LWL moves out of the house.
They did not specify which were the actual cases that they consider as abuse of power. However, they did provide a lot of information for readers to make our own judgment.
I have addressed a question that most people did not discuss adequately. Why was LKY so unwavering in his wish for 38 Oxley Road to be demolished. He knew that LHL wanted very much for the house to be preserved. Why does LKY not accede to the request of his eldest son?
