KUALA LUMPUR: Touch & # 39; n Go has been asked to put down a 10% parking surcharge and a 50% upfront charge imposed on consumers.
MCA President Datuk Seri, Dr Wee Ka Siong, said the government should intervene to abolish both heights because they are a burden to the people.
"Why is the 50sen surcharge imposed in some places, but not elsewhere?
"Why does the government not intervene and recommend that no 50sen surcharge be imposed?" MP Ayer Chitam asked an additional question on Wednesday (November 6th) by Davan Rakiat.
He pointed out that the answer given by Deputy Minister of Internal Trade and Consumer Affairs Jong Jing Chen was not in line with calls to deal with the additional fees.
"How can you say that a 10% parking surcharge is not a burden for consumers?" he asked me.
And instead of encouraging consumers to use non-cash payments, he said they would be charged an extra 10% parking surcharge when using the card payment method.
In a Facebook post later on Wednesday, Dr Ve instructed Jong on the easy way out by accusing the previous administration of answering questions raised in parliament.
"Pakistani Sharapan said that they are a government that hears the voices of the people.
"But are they aware that #MansuhkanTouchnGo is discussing social media brandy?" He asked me.
On Wednesday, Jong told Davan Ricketts that there were 11,168 touch-up facilities nationwide, of which 2,880 did not impose a 50sen surcharge.
Jong also said that a 10% parking surcharge would be gradual for Touch n & # 39; Go card users.
The contractual terms for the surcharge were imposed during the previous administration, he said.
He said the company that operates Touch n & # 39; Go will not include any surcharge in future contracts or renewing contracts with parking operators.
