NETIZENS DEFEND SMRT DRIVER WHO WAS FIRED – BLAME OPERATIONAL LAPSES

Following SMRT’s announcement that the driver of the fatal accident had been dismissed, netizens stand in solidarity with Mr Rahmat Mohd citing that the dismissal was unfair.

Many questioned why Mr Rahmat was fired when operational lapses were only exposed after the tragic accident. Some questioned why the management did not step up to take responsibility.

Some of the operational lapses include allowing a train to ply in automatic mode while workers were on site, not deploying watchmen to look out for approaching trains, and failing to provide early warning to the work team.
