Panelo nanindigang walang mass transport crisis sa MM matapos mabatikos

By: - 10/09/2019

NANINDIGAN si Presidential Spokesperson at Chief Presidential Legal  Counsel Salvador Panelo na walang mass transport crisis sa Metro Manila matapos namang ang kaliwa’t kanang batikos na kanyang natanggap dahil sa kanyang naunang pahayag.

“I stand by my statement: there is no mass transport crisis. The crisis is in the sufferance of commuters and motorists; while the other crisis is in the inefficient operation and maintenance of the LRTs – the crisis is in its poor management,” sabi ni Panelo sa isang pahayag.

Nauna nang iginiit ni Panelo na wala pa namang krisis dahil umaabot pa naman ang mga mananakay sa kanilang destinasyon.

“Had the critics and the nitpickers read the transcript of my remarks in the press briefing yesterday, they would have readily understood that when I said there is no mass transit crisis, I meant there is no mass transit crisis simply because there is no mass transit paralysis. Even the recent nationwide transport strike failed in paralyzing the mass transport,” dagdag ni Panelo.

Matatandang pinayuhan pa ni Panelo ang mga pasahero na umalis nang maaga para makarating sa oras.

“I understand that this representation’s remarks in yesterday’s press briefing have become a subject of ridicule and hate by the President’s usual critics and detractors,” ayon pa kay Panelo.

Ang pahayag ni Panelo kaugnay ng walang mass transport crisis ay bilang tugon sa sinabi ng Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) na may mass transport crisis na sa bansa matapos ang pagkasira ng Light Rail Transit-2 (LRT-2).

“Just because I disagree with the leftist organization’s theory on the existence of a mass transport crisis does not mean that I am unaware of the vexing daily commute, as well as the burden caused by the worsening traffic conditions in Manila,” paliwanag pa ni Panelo.

Ayon pa kay Panelo, nadatnan na lamang ng administrasyon ang problema.

“These perennial problems are a carry over of two previous administrations, and inherited by the present one,” sabi pa ni Panelo.

Sinisi pa ni Panelo ang Kongreso sa kabiguan nito na bigyan ng emergency powers si Pangulong Duterte para masolusyunan ang problema sa trapik.
