PM concerned over rider issues

KUALA LUMPUR: Representatives of ehailing and p-hailing associations will meet the Transport Minister and Human Resources Minister to discuss the issues facing them.

Political secretary to the Prime Minister Khaizulnizam Mohamad Zuldin said the meeting with representatives of the two associations and Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong will be held on Monday in Putrajaya.

The groups’ meeting with Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan will be arranged soon, he told reporters after a meeting with representatives of Grab Driver Malaysia Association and Persatuan Penghantar P-Hailing Malaysia at a restaurant in Jalan Ampang here yesterday, Bernama reported.

According to Khaizulnizam, he met with representatives of the two associations after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob expressed concern about the issues faced by the associations.

“I have been instructed by the Prime Minister to meet with p-hailing riders and ehailing drivers to listen to their problems,” he said, adding that the government always listens to the problems faced by each member of Keluarga Malaysia.

Persatuan Penghantar P-Hailing Malaysia deputy president Abdul Hakim Abdul Rani said the association is unhappy that the delivery charge has been reduced by the service providing company.

Grab Driver Malaysia Association deputy president Mohd Azril Ahmat hopes government representatives will listen to their grouses before making any decision.

Earlier, the social media posters on “1 Off Day” and “Food Delivery Blackout on Friday, Aug 5, 2022” were followed by messages to boycott delivery services.
