UST alumnus slams Robredo on traffic woes statement: Shame on you! You did not contribute anything

Radio Host Mark Lopez | Vice President Leni Robredo

Following the strict enforcement of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) of the yellow lane policy along EDSA to supposedly ease the traffic congestion has earned the attention not just of the commuters but also from the country's leaders criticizing the implementation effort of MMDA.

Some critics have called the action as anti-poor as they believe the scheme only benefited those private vehicles at the expense of public utility vehicles.

Last week Vice President Leni Robredo issued a statement that an  an efficient mass transport system is key to solve the horrendous traffic in the metropolis giving the priority to the welfare of the public transport users.

"Alam naman natin iyong mga nagbu-bus, karamihan diyan hindi nakaka-afford na magkaroon ng sasakyan tapos sila pa iyong idi-discriminate. ‘Di ba dapat baliktad? ‘Di ba dapat ang inaasikaso iyong mass transportation kasi talagang dapat ang asikasuhin mo iyong walang choice," she said.

Robredo's statement captured the attention of the prominent radio host, and an alumnus of the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) Mark Lopez, who expressed outrage on his Facebook post responding the former's proposal to the Duterte government on how to resolve the traffic mess.

Lopez slammed Robredo for having the gall to issue a statement which he has seen as more of posturing rather than solving the problem.

"Sa totoo lang Aling Leni, sobrang nakakairita at nakaka bwiset kapag nakakabasa kami ng ganitong napakababaw na press release mula sa iyo. Kasi obvious na namumulitika ka lang at nagpapaka relevant, even if magmukha ka nang tanga,"

Response to Leni Robredo, on her statement re traffic problem -

Ms Robredo,

As a citizen who is personally experiencing the so called horrendous traffic in the Metro, I am outraged that you have the temerity to issue a statement that caters more on posturing rather than problem solving.

I really cannot fathom how someone like you deserve to be the 2nd highest official of the land, when your IQ, EQ and LQ (leadership quality) clearly rank below average level. 

And this statement is testament of that.

Because this is nothing but a hollow statement intended to bolster your superfluous and weak image as a government official.

Seriously, you did not contribute anything to alleviate the situation, and you even cemented the legacy of incompetence and callousness of your own political party.

Why? Because we are precisely in this mess because of the greed, shortsightedness, ineptitude and apathy of the leaders whom you have allied yourself with. 

Our country became stagnant because of the poor leadership of your yellow gang, in which we can clearly see that you have what it takes in carrying their heritage of stupidity. 

Ms Robredo, it is this idiocy which has now blinded you to the fact that the current administration has been exerting an enormous amount of determination, resolve and massive political will in order to pursue the genuine desire to give us a more comfortable life.

And what you have outlined as a wish list in your shallow statement is actually work being done NOW and ever since this administration took over. 

There is now a short, medium and long term plan to vastly improve and seamlessly integrate the neglected infrastructure and transport system of our country. 

All you have to do, without the need to over analyze, is simply browse the net, click on the social media pages of the Department of Public Works and Highways and Department of Transportation - Philippines, 

and you will see the grand projects in railways, airports, trains, seaports, bridges, and road network.

I don’t know about you Ms Robredo, and how lazy or blind your staff is, just like you, but the information and data is all there, and which majority of us Filipinos are very much aware, and have come to appreciate.

What you have been lazily dreaming is ACTUALLY BEING DONE!

Sa totoo lang Aling Leni, sobrang nakakairita at nakaka bwiset kapag nakakabasa kami ng ganitong napakababaw na press release mula sa iyo. Kasi obvious na namumulitika ka lang at nagpapaka relevant, even if magmukha ka nang tanga. 

Isa pa eh halata naman na you are pandering to the interest of big business dito sa issue na ito. Masyado ba maapektuhan ang Cubao ni Mar Roxas pag inalis ang mga terminal sa Edsa? 

Babanat ka pa ng “we continue to urge the government to implement holistic solutions” eh pucha naman ano ba ang tingin mo sa Build Build Build, wala lang na parang relasyon nyo lang ni Bolet? 

Sana man lang Leni, imbes na pumorma ka ng pang e epal, eh di ba mas maganda kung tumulong ka na lang na magpaliwanag sa taumbayan na ang “nararanasan natin ngayon traffic eh pansamantala lamang at necessary dahil kumikilos na ating gobyerno para manumbalik ang disiplina sa kalsada, at para sa kalaunan ay maging mas convenient na ang mobility. At huwag kayo mag alala dahil doble kayod ang inyong gobyerno ngayon na ma improve ang ating imprastraktura”

Parte ka naman ng gobyerno eh pero bakit nga ba mas pinipili mo na mang epal at manira pa sa ating bayan? 

Naiintidihan namin na kelangan magtiis ngayon dahil nga kelangan din natin maghabol. 

At alam din namin na determinado si President Rody Duterte na ayusin ang bulok na sistema na syang nag precipitate nitong traffic problem. Lalu na patungkol sa disiplina. Ang gusto mawala ni Pangulo ay ang culture of impunity na syang pangunahing dahilan bakit wala tayong disiplina maski sa kalsada.

The same culture of impunity na mukhang mas gusto mo protektahan at manatili.

Shame on you...
