The case of a food delivery man who was involved in an accident at Bulatan Kayangan in Shah Alam when the motorcycle he was riding skidded after he passed through dozens of plastic fans with the Bersatu logo has got the attention of the party president Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
According to university student Mohamad Azezul Mohd Omar, 18, the incident occurred on Saturday at about 6pm when he was on his way to deliver food to a customer.
“When I arrived at the location, I found many plastic fans with the red Bersatu logo strewn in the middle of the road, causing my motorcycle to skid at Bulatan Kayangan.
“I am claiming damages from the relevant parties to repair my motorcycle and my handphone which was cracked in the incident,” he told Bernama when contacted.
Azezul, who works part-time as a food delivery man, said as a result of the accident he suffered injuries in his left leg and he uploaded an account of the event on his Twitter account under the name Vzezul.
“I had an accident just now near the Kayangan roundabout in Shah Alam because of this thing. Please retweet until Tun M sees this. I want to claim damages for my motor,” he said on his Twitter account.
The message received from Mahathir’s official Twitter account which asked the Bersatu party official page to look into the matter and contact the man concerned.
“Dear @PPBMofficial, please look into this matter and contact this gentleman. Thank you,” he said in his response to the status posted by Vzezul.
Azezul also conveyed his thanks to the prime minister for his concern in the matter.
