Grab drivers, delivery riders’ complaints get PM Muhyiddin’s attention

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 24 — The grouses of Grab drivers and delivery riders have caught the attention of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, as he met a group of them today at the Grab Drivers Centre in Petaling Jaya, near here, to listen to their problems.

In a Facebook posting, the prime minister said he would discuss with the relevant ministries several issues raised by Grab drivers and delivery riders concerning the difficulty in getting loans and government assistance like petrol subsidy.

He said most of them expressed their concerns on the Temporary Handlers’ Licence (LPS) regulation and guidelines on delivery service for food, drinks and packages or p-hailing which the Transport Ministry (MOT) reportedly planned to introduce soon.

“I will ask MOT to review this matter as soon as possible,” he said.

Describing this group as uncelebrated frontliners, Muhyiddin said he was proud of the spirit and dedication shown by them to earn a living to keep life going for their family, especially when the country is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic.
