Parehong Matinik: Pero bagito pa din sa diskarte si Vico kumpara kay Isko!



The poster of the hour Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto and bring back the glory of Manila- Isko Moreno has been pitted with each other with respect to their respective measures undertaking how to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.
Department of Interior Local Governent (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año has been put into spot light with respect to the use of tricycles or e-trike in the jurisdictions of Pasig and Manila having in mind that there is a clear directive from the national government that there should be no public transport in the streets.

DILG Secretary Año has made himself public as to why the other is allowed and the other is not allowed to be in the streets.

Año there is a difference from letting tricycles operate on their own, which defeats the purpose of limiting the public’s movements, as would have been the case in Pasig City.

“The difference kay mayor ng Manila, yung e-trike, e-vehicles ay hindi pumapasada. Ito ay hinire o cinommission ng Manila on dispatch system for the purpose of bringing health workers to the hospital,” Año said in a press briefing.

(The difference of the Manila mayor is that the e-tricycles, e-vehicles are not operating on their own. They were hired or commissioned by the Manila government on a dispatch system for the purpose of bringing health workers to the hospital.)

Mayor Moreno’s government said it will allow 189 e-tricycle to service workers going to public hospitals despite the suspension of public transport due to the enhanced community quarantine.
e-tricycles will be assigned to the city’s district hospitals, Gat Andres Bonifacio Memorial Medical Center, Ospital ng Tondo, Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital, Ospital ng Sampaloc, Ospital ng Maynila, and Sta. Ana Hospital, only to service frontliners or medical personnel.

Ana Hospital, only to service frontliners or medical personnel.

“They are on dispatch system to pick up the health workers specifically. Hindi yung pumipick up ka ng pasahero at alam mo naman, pag pinayagan mo mamasada kahit konti lang yan, you can’t control it anymore,” Año said.


(They are on dispatch system to pick up the health workers specifically. They don’t pick up other passengers. And you know that when you allow them to operate, even if it’s just a small number, you can’t control it anymore.)
The city of Pasig earlier allowed tricycle operations to service health workers and patients who might need medical attention.
Año said he would rather see the Armed Forces of the Philippines(AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) focus their manpower keeping people at home than checking tricycles if it is following social distancing.

“Of 270,000 tricycles, sabihin natin 100,000 tricycles, I don’t want the AFP and PNP to check 100,000 tricycles every moment just to check kung sino ‘yung sakay. I’d rather have them focus their efforts on keeping the people stay at home,” Año said.


(Of 270,000 tricycles, let’s say there are 100,000 tricycles who would operate. I don’t want the AFP and PNP to check 100,000 tricycles every moment just to check on the passengers. I’d rather have them focus their efforts on keeping the people stay at home.)
