Light Rail Transit mishap riles Poe

SENATOR Grace Poe yesterday admonished the Department of Transportation (DOTr) for seemingly putting the lives of passengers in danger after the recent accident involving two trains of the Light Rail Transit Line 2.

Poe said that the DOTr officials must do everything in their power to guarantee the safety of their hundreds of thousands of passengers.

“Ang mga dapat umandar, hindi umaandar. ‘Yung mga hindi naman dapat umandar, umaandar. Talagang ‘wag nating isugal ang buhay ng ating mga pasahero,” Poe said.

She said the agency should not gamble with the lives of the commuters by being remiss in their jobs especially concerning safety.

“Mabuti na lang gano’n lang at walang nabawian ng buhay pero siguro isang bagay na talagang dapat tutukan talaga natin—ng DOTr—‘wag nilang makakaligtaan ang mga transportasyon na nariyan na dahil sa dami ng mga ibang inaasikaso din nila,” Poe added.
