There has not been much commotion when the Ministry of Transport decided to ban Dego Ride. But this one DAP fellow came out and try to be this Dego Ride hero.
His name is Rajiv Rishyakaran, a first-term member of the Selangor State Assembly from the Democratic Action Party, representing the state seat of Bukit Gasing.
Of course, this is nothing more than a populist approach trying to win the hearts of these Dego Ride operators and users. He tried to champion this issue without knowing the exact reason why this ban is in place.
Dego Ride for those who are not particularly familiar with it is an exact replicate of Uber or Grab Car but instead of cars, they are using motorcycles (Like the Indonesian ojek).
