Senate calls on Abaya

DOTC Secretary Emilio Joseph Abaya

The Senate will once again summon Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya and officials of the Metro Rail Transit Authority.

The Senate Subcommittee on Public Services will call Abaya and the officials of the MRT management to explain the rampant glitches in the MRT these past few days.

The Senate will probe Abaya on the DOTC’s promised rehabilitation on the MRT.

The said rehabilitation includes the delayed delivery of the supposed new coaches, maintenance of elevators, escalators and even the restrooms of the MRT stations.

The hearing will also cover the discussion on the proposed budget of the DOTC for next year.

The Senators warned Abaya that the budget for his agency may be delayed if they will not be able to solve the problems of the MRT.  (with DZRH Milky Rigonan, Aly Narvaez)
