Grace Poe: We need a master plan, not just emergency powers
The country needs a master plan on how to resolve the traffic congestion in Metro Manila, Senator Grace Poe insisted in the wake of President Duterte’s criticisms against her.
Poe earlier rebuffed the President’s request for emergency powers to untangle the traffic mess in the capital.
“It is not the lack of emergency powers but the lack of a master plan,” she said during the Senate public services committee hearing Tuesday.
She said the government has an approved “dream plan” but it remained unclear whether the transportation agencies have adopted the plan for implementation.
“The cost to implement the dream plan is less than what we are losing daily due to the traffic problem,” she said.
