Five years ago, Twitter user Muz informed Klang Valley’s public transportation provider, Rapid KL about the broken escalator at the Sri Rampai LRT rail station in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur.
The escalator is allegedly unfixed until today.
Previously, Rapid KL responded with a tweet saying, “We apologise for the inconvenience. At this time we are waiting for spare parts to repair the said escalator.”

Today, Rapid KL said on Twitter that the escalator isn’t under their jurisdiction to fix after checks.
In the tweet, Rapid KL also included a photo of‘ evidence’ to show that the escalator isn’t their problem to fix.
1/2 Hi, kami memohon maaf di atas kekhilafan maklum balas tweet yang terdahulu. Selepas semakan semula dibuat, kami ingin memaklumkan bahawa eskalator ini bukan di bawah selenggaraan Rapid KL. Bersama ini disertakan gambar sebagai rujukan. pic.twitter.com/HukqWAfGUj— Ask Rapid KL (@AskRapidKL) November 10, 2021
Netizens obviously saw the tweet for what it was: a clumsy deflection.
“Lmao they basically just said this. ‘How do I know? I’m just a fish,” a netizen wrote.

“Lol this is not even a solution. More likely to save themselves,” another netizen tweeted.

“So, MyRapidKL/RapidKL is Prasarana? Is the culture within the organisation the same across Malaysia? To draw lines and say this is not my jurisdiction? But the bigger picture still stands to be corrected. Collectively, it needs to be solved. Have you done your part? :)” someone else wrote.

A netizen summed everyone’s sentiments up best by writing, “Easy to say, “not my problem” isn’t it? Hahaha instead, go inform the proper authorities who need to fix the escalator lah. Serve your customers right. Everything the rakyat have to do.”

A netizen also asked, “So five years ago, was the spare part that was ordered a lie or wrongly ordered?”
So 5 tahun order spare part tu menipu ke tersalah order?— ▪️ (@yvyvivy) November 10, 2021
But the question still remains, who is responsible for the escalator repairs if the escalator isn’t under Rapid KL’s jurisdiction?
In a second tweet, Rapid KL told customers to divert their complaints to DBKL if they have an issue with the unrepaired escalator.
2/2 Kami menyarankan anda mengemukakan aduan kepada pihak DBKL di pautan https://t.co/Ki4FgXPfEx. Terima kasih. @ITIS_TRAFIK— Ask Rapid KL (@AskRapidKL) November 10, 2021
A netizen joked that Rapid KL is going to let DBKL take the blame in this game of ‘Tag, You’re It.’
Kita semua tahu ni sebenarnya tggjawab DBKL sbg pihak berkuasa tempatan melestarikan ibu negara, maka @DBKL2u apa tindakan anda?— 😵 🇲🇾🚩🏴 (@AiemenRazieq) November 11, 2021
Sedap eh biar RapidKL je take the blame pic.twitter.com/LYfn5FYUJD
