4PAM is committed to its objective of ensuring the safety, protection, awareness, and rights of the Public Transport User is always protected, said Ajit Johl, 4 PAM President. It is paramount that the next Chairman of a Public Transport organisation should have some experience in the business and understand the important role Public Transport plays in the country.
4PAM also wants the Minister of Transport to expand the number of people in the enquiry panel to include more representation from User’s and experts in the field to ensure a truly independent study can be carried out. The findings of this study should be made public, with the fundamental idea of seeking the cause of the mishap, to ensure it never repeats and not witch hunting, added Ajit.
We hope the government takes seriously our pleas to form a Public Transport Ombudsman, similar to the Financial Mediation Bureau, for the financial services industry.
4PAM is saddened by this tragedy and prays for the speedy recovery of all victims of this accident. We urge the victims to consult lawyers before taking any offer or signing any documents offered by Prasarana and we are offering legal assistance to all victims of the accident and can be reached via email at [email protected]
