Fuad: What about PH drivers?

Friday, February 17 2017

BARATARIA/San Juan MP Dr Fuad Khan says if Government believes any proposed taxi service by Uber is illegal, “then they should go after all private hire (PH) taxi drivers”, with the same vigour. In a statement, Khan referred to recent statements by Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan on the Uber issue.

Referring to Section 4 (b) of the Constitution and its definition of discrimination, Khan claimed, “For Government to target a single group who it claims are infringing on the law, while allowing countless others to continue in the same illegal act is discriminatory...” He added, “While I do not condone or accept that such illegality should be necessary in our society, it is hard to dismiss the fact that Government is clearly targeting a specific group of individuals (Uber) while allowing others (PH drivers) who may be closely tied to their party, to indulge in the same actions without consequence.”
