In defending the image and integrity of all Malaysians taxi drivers, the Malaysia Taxi Associations coalition (GPTM) had lodged a police report against the Klang Valley Taxi Drivers Action Committee (JBPTLK) over the latter's plan to hold a rally calling for the resignation of Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.
Quoting the spokesperson of GPTM;
"The rally will not bring any good to the organiser and will only disrupt the public's daily activities. We believe that all dissatisfactions should be voiced out and discussed through a proper channel, not on the street,"
We at #KLChronicle have always said that in order for the taxi industry in this country to improve, it needs the involvement of all stakeholders. It cannot be just SPAD that tries to improve the industry but then a number of taxi drivers have to also participate in this transformation. They cant be rigid and then blame SPAD for their predicament.
This is what exactly is being done by JBPTLK. They want to demonstrate against SPAD but in the end this will not solve anything. There can be a new chairman replacing Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar but will this resolve anything if these taxi drivers still do not want to change their behaviour?
The answer is a big NO!
