Seen as one of the more corrupted government agencies for licensing bad drivers and vehicles, the RTD today launched its integrity plan to standardise its procedures and work outline.
“The public have all the negative perception about the RTD, such as not being responsive, not customer friendly, bureaucracy and bribery. I have received many public complaints and I know they are not satisfied with the RTD,” the Transport Minister said when launching the ‘RTD Integrity Plan Malaysia’ here.
“These accusations comes from the experience the public face as well as the stakeholders who have dealt with the RTD on an everyday basis. There are some truths in their accusations. Even though it is hard to swallow but the RTD must accept the reality,” Ong said.
Ong later told the reporters that the department had signed a memorandum of understanding with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to end corruption in the department.
Rather novel way of combating corruption don't you think? Ah...but later on the Ong fler added......
"This shows the aspiration of the RTD and also the ministry to end bribery, if possible, or to at least reduce it."Oh okay. If possible la. Baarger! Before starting already put in disclaimer. What la!!!
