Magji-jeep at LRT! Panelo to commute to Malacañang on Friday
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman on Wednesday accepted the challenge by workers group Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) to commute to work.
“The challenge to commute is accepted. This coming Friday, I’ll take the jeepney and the LRT in going to work,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters.
Panelo had claimed that despite the glitches at the Light Rail Transit, there is no mass transportation crisis in Metro Manila and this drew the ire of commuters.
KMU Secretary General Jerome Adonis said Panelo should try commuting for a whole week to understand public sentiment towards traffic.
“Hinahamon namin siyang bumiyahe sa EDSA mula North EDSA o kaya mula Santolan papuntang Maynila, papunta at pauwi mula Malacañang para makita niya ang kalagayan ng ating mga kabababayan,” the group’s statement read.
