Rais: Taxi drivers must promote 1 Malaysia as sign of gratitude
By Yow Hong Chieh
April 01, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 1 — Taxi and bus drivers should highlight the positives of the prime minister’s 1 Malaysia concept and act as “government ambassadors”, Datuk Seri Rais Yatim said yesterday.

The information, communication and culture minister (picture) said public transport operators should not keep silent when carrying fares but must help explain the concept to passengers who “are critical and accuse the government of all sorts”, Utusan Malaysia reported today.

“It must be done as a sign of gratitude and thanks for the government’s efforts to continuously safeguard their welfare, like Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia and the specific government aid to taxi drivers,” the Malay daily quoted him as saying in Kota Kinabalu.

“When ferrying passengers, we ask that they tell those sitting next to them or behind them, ‘Taxi drivers like us have been given aid by the government. We are very grateful for the government’s mindfulness.’”

He added that taxi and bus drivers were “frontliners” who played an important role in promoting the 1 Malaysia concept to not only their passengers but also the public in general.

Putrajaya previously tried to enlist taxi drivers in the service of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to help curb graft.

In September last year, de facto law minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz asked taxi drivers to act as the graftbuster’s “eyes and ears” on the ground.

“The involvement of people from all walks of life is important in fighting corruption,” he had said.

“Taxi drivers are those who frequently interact with the public, they can get a lot of information from their passengers.”

He added that if taxi drivers suspected their passengers of wrongdoing “they should immediately take the passengers to any MACC office and lodge a report”.

It is government's duty of handing licence to taxi drivers, it is a process.

I don't see why they need to express gratitude, like no tomorrow.

Pemandu teksi, bas perlu jadi ejen 1Malaysia - Rais

KOTA KINABALU 31 Mac - Pemandu dan pengusaha pengangkutan awam merupakan front liner (barisan hadapan) yang boleh memainkan peranan penting mempromosikan konsep 1Malaysia kepada penumpang dan masyarakat umum.

Menteri Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan, Datuk Seri Dr. Rais Yatim berkata, pemandu teksi dan bas juga berperanan sebagai 'duta kerajaan' untuk menjelaskan kewibawaan konsep 1Malaysia secara langsung dan sebaliknya kepada penumpang yang menggunakan perkhidmatan mereka.

"Jangan hanya diam sahaja semasa membawa teksi, mesti peramah dan beradab. Ceritakan mengenai kebaikan konsep 1Malaysia, pada masa sama terangkan kepada penumpang yang kritikal menuduh bermacam-macam terhadap kerajaan.

"Ia perlu dilakukan sebagai tanda syukur dan terima kasih atas usaha kerajaan membela kebajikan mereka secara berterusan seperti Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia dan bantuan khusus kerajaan terhadap pengusaha teksi.

"Semasa membawa penumpang, kita pohon nyatakan kepada orang di sebelah atau orang yang duduk di belakang bahawa pembawa teksi seperti kami dibantu oleh kerajaan. Kami amat bersyukur kerana keprihatinan kerajaan," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam ucapan semasa melancarkan program penghayatan 1Malaysia bersama pemandu dan pengusaha teksi Zon Sabah dan Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan di Lintasan Deasoka di sini hari ini.

Rais yang juga Penaung Pertubuhan Pemandu dan Pengusaha Teksi dan Kereta Sewa Malaysia (Petekma) bersama isteri, Datin Seri Masnah Rais membuat gimik dengan menaiki teksi bandar untuk ke majlis itu.

Hadir sama, Ketua Setiausaha Kementerian, Datuk Seri Kamaruddin Siaraf; Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Penerangan, Ibrahim Abdul Rahman dan Presiden Petekma Sabah, Kani Samidul.

Turut hadir, lebih 250 orang pemandu teksi dan bas dari Sabah dan Labuan. Pada masa ini terdapat lebih 7,000 pemandu teksi dan bas di seluruh Sabah, dengan 800 orang daripadanya di Kota Kinabalu dan 100 pula di Labuan.

Rais pada majlis sama turut menyumbangkan sebanyak RM20,000 untuk bantuan pengurusan dan pentadbiran Petekma Sabah.

Dalam pada itu, beliau memberi jaminan akan terus memperjuangkan nasib ahli-ahli Petekma di seluruh negara termasuk di Sabah dengan memastikan kebajikan mereka sentiasa terbela.

Sebagai mengenang budi, Rais meminta mereka supaya terus memberi sokongan kepada kerajaan yang dalam Bajet 2012 telah memberikan pelbagai insentif kepada ahli Petekma untuk mengurangkan beban seperti pengecualian 100 peratus duti eksais dan cukai jualan ke atas pembelian teksi baru buatan tempatan dan pemansuhan cukai jalan ke atas teksi bajet persendirian.

"Kerajaan tidak berhenti setakat itu sahaja, kini kajian penambahbaikan sedang dibuat, antaranya ialah usul mewujudkan insurans berkelompok semasa bekerja dan kemudahan rawatan di hospital.

"Ia akan dibawa untuk tindakan susulan kepada pihak-pihak berwajib, termasuklah diskaun harga tayar seperti yang diucapkan oleh Kani dalam ucapan tadi," katanya.
