QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Sumentro ang talumpati ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino III sa paggunita sa ikatlong dekada ng EDSA People Power sa pagbatikos sa naging pamumuno noon ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos at sa pagpapatupad nito ng Martial Law.

“Hayagan kong sinasabi ngayon, bilang bahagi ng henerasyong pinagdusa ng diktadurya: Hindi golden age ang panahon ni Ginoong Marcos. Isa itong napakasakit na yugto ng ating kasaysayan…”

Binatikos rin ni Pangulong Noynoy Aquino si Senator Bongbong Marcos.

“Totoo nga naman po ang kasabihan: Ang kasalanan ng ama ay hindi dapat ipataw sa anak. Pero ang masakit: ‘Yun pong kadugo ng diktador, sa mahabang panahon ay puwede namang sinabing, “nagkamali ang aking ama” o “nagkamali kami; bigyan n’yo kami ng pagkakataong iwasto ito.” Pero isipin na lang po ninyo, ito ang tahasang naging pagsagot niya, “I am ready to say sorry if I knew what I have to be sorry for.”

Inihayag rin ni Pangulong Aquino sa kaniyang talumpati ang kaniyang panghihinayang sa hindi pagkakapasa ng Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) sa Kongreso.

Dito sinisi ng Pangulo si Senator Marcos sa pagkabinbin ng BBL.

“Talagang nanghihinayang ako, dahil ang tanging batas na maghahatid ng katarungan at kapayapaan, sadya pa po talagang hinarang. At di po ba: ang BBL, naipit sa Senado sa kumite para sa lokal na gobyerno, na pinamumunuan ni Senador Marcos? Di ba nung pinakahuling araw ng sesyon, tuloy pa rin ang pag-interpellate ni Senador Enrile?”

Ito na ang huling pagdalo ni Pangulong Aquino sa taunang programa sa paggunita sa EDSA People Power Revolution bilang pangulo ng bansa. (BRYAN DE PAZ / UNTV News)

DPWH: EDSA traffic congestion to be reduced by 20-30% in 2020

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said the traffic congestion on EDSA might be reduced by 20-30% as several infrastructure projects are set to be completed by 2020.

The DPWH said that once the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 is completed by April, there would be a reduction of around 100,000 vehicles on EDSA.

This is apart from the 30,000 trucks set to be reduced once the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Segment 10 opens in March.

“With the second half of this year, we will relieve EDSA of 20-30 percent. Malaki po ang (There is a lot of) improvement in EDSA and for the first year, starting this year and in subsequent years, we will see continued improvement along EDSA,” according to DPWH Secretary Mark Villar.

The department official also believes that once all the infrastructure projects are completed, EDSA’s vehicle capacity might return to 280,000 vehicles. At present, there are around 400,000 vehicles plying along EDSA everyday.

“I can say at this point, we will deliver in the promise to bring back EDSA to its original capacity,” Villar said.—AAC (with reports from Rosalie Coz)
