Maagang kalbaryo: Poe hits sudden outage of internet, water, power

0 52

Re-electionist Senator Grace Poe has called on government regulators and public utility companies to be responsive in delivering services to the people.

The independent senator expressed her dismay over water interruptions, power outages and no internet connection, noting how water and electricity are crucial for Filipinos especially now that the country is experiencing scorching heat due to the El Nino phenomenon.

“Walang tubig, walang kuryente, walang internet. Sobrang kalbaryo. Sa susunod na linggo pa ang Mahal na Araw pero nauna na ang pwersahang penitensya,” Poe said.

Poe stressed government regulators should ensure that certain penalties are imposed if companies fail to deliver services to the public as stated under their contract.

“Tandaan natin, may mga probisyon sa kontrata ng mga kumpanya na kailangang kalidad na serbisyo ang maibibigay sa taumbayan, at may kaukulang penalty ang hindi makakatugon,” she said.

“Maging aktibo rin sana ang ating mga government regulators sa ganitong usapin dahil may mandato at kapangyarihan sila sa pagsisiguro nang maayos na pamamalakad ng mga kumpanyang ito,” Poe added

The leading senatorial aspirant said she will push for her proposed bill, the Public Services Act, if she gets re-elected to the Senate.

“Sa Senado, may panukalang batas tayo, Public Services Act na naglalayong masiguro na kalidad na serbisyo lamang ang natatangap ng ating mamamayan sa abot-kayang halaga. Isusulong natin ang pagpasa nito,” Poe said
