Yesterday (16 September), the Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias had in a community event in conjunction with the 2021 Malaysia Day celebration announced that the Ministry will step up its support for the delivery riders in Kuala Lumpur.
He said the initiative involves creating special “Green Zones” areas in 10 locations around Kuala Lumpur specifically as motorcycle parking lots for food and parcel delivery riders.
He added that this will help facilitate and speed up the delivery of food and parcels by the riders.
“We already have a pioneer Green Zone area at Menara Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur that can be used by delivery riders.”
“In addition, I have also discussed with the Kuala Lumpur mayor to implement this project immediately at 10 other areas, including in front of Pavillion, the Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC) in Jalan Ampang, and Sunway Putra.” he said, as reported by Bernama.
Meanwhile, he said the Ministry will expand this pioneer project to Putrajaya and Labuan and he say this serves as an example for other states to implement such projects.
Commenting on a separate matter, Jalaluddin voiced his support for the government’s effort to implement the UNDI18 at the 15th General Election.
“I don’t think implementing UNDI18 is a big problem, rather it provides 18 year-olds the chance to elect their own leaders by making their best decision for the betterment of the country.” he said.
Nonetheless, he also introduced the Aduan Waghih Jelebu programme, where Jelebu residents can channel the social welfare problems or suggestions to him via WhatsApp at 017-295 3550.
He added that the programme involves a vehicle convoy ferrying 250 food baskets to 4 locations, namely Pekan Titi, Simpang Durian, Air Hitam and Pekan Pertang, involving the state constituencies of Pertang and Sungai Lui.
