Did Tun Mahathir say he will abolish Ride Sharing?

Earlier today, several mainstream media titles had reported that Tun Mahathir vows to put an end to ride sharing services in Malaysia. The report claimed that the opposition wants to abolish e-hailing applications and services if they win in the upcoming election.

Just hours after the news came out, Tun Mahathir has dismissed such reports as false. He clarified that he did mentioned the need to relook at the existing acts to ensure that the rights of both Grab and Taxi drivers are well taken care of.

At time of posting, TheStar and NST have retracted their news articles.
