The hashtag went viral after the quote was taken from a post by a user known as @yarafaee_. The netizen responded to another social media user, @puterirajaawan, by slamming the MCO 2.0 business period system, which currently only allows operation from 11am to 8pm.
The hashtag column has since been flooded with numerous remarks left by fellow members of Twitterjaya. Interestingly, even Syed Saddiq jumped in on the bandwagon by expressing his resentment towards the government for not “listening to the Rakyat”.
Check out some of the interesting reactions that we got here:

1) Bila nak extend DELIVERY time?!
Susah sangat ke nak bantu peniaga kecil, Riders & yang lapar di rumah?!
2) Bila nak bela nasib pelajar yang terpaksa balik sekolah walaupun dari kawasan MERAH & TIDAK KUARANTIN & TESTING?
Please listen to the RAKYAT. https://t.co/31NpCBMOeR
