At long last, the PM of all person, decides to take a ride on the commuter and the LRT, to see for himself the problems faced by commuters. I am wondering whether he has taken over the portfolio as the Minister of Transport.
I am not implying that the PM should not do what he did, but he could have just ordered the Minister of Transport to report to him, his concerns regarding the problems faced by KTM and LRT commuters daily. I do not know how the the Minister of Transport and his entire ministry reacted, but I would be ashamed to have my boss do things that I am suppose to be responsible.
Being a regular passenger on the KTM commuter, I have lots to tell about the plight of passengers, especially during the peak hours. It was only yesterday, August 21 that I heard a child screaming during the rush to get into the KTM commuter at Mid Valley station. Apparently, the child was hit by the closing door of the commuter. It must be a horrifying experience for the child and the mother. Shouts by angry passengers trying to get out and into the commuter, especially during the rush period is a daily occurrence.
I am quite sure the KTM management is well aware of the problems faced by its commuters. What is actually required is a total revamp of the entire KTM management, whom I believe have little interest in improving the KTM commuter services.
