On the Protest Rally of Anakbayan Against the DOTr’s Tanggal Bulok, Tanggal Usok Operations

The protest rally of leftist group Anakbayan against the “Tanggal Bulok, Tanggal Usok” operations in UP Diliman is unfortunate and unwarranted.  

The surprise operations was conducted after Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade received text complaints from UP students during an interview in a radio program that there are a lot of old, dilapidated, and smoke-belching jeepneys roaming in UP. 

To assist commuters who were affected by the operations, solar-powered jeepneys were deployed to ferry affected passengers to their destinations.

Anakbayan prides itself as a progressive youth organization. Sadly, their actions speak of the opposite. Their actions also do not reflect the majority of our youth, who they claim to represent.

Implementing the campaign against smoke-belching PUVs is a tough, but necessary task. It is long overdue. This is an integral part of the PUV Modernization Program, which aims to bring about a comprehensive system reform of the public transportation industry. 

The DOTr is bent on giving the riding public a safer and more comfortable commuting experience. Is Anakbayan opposed to better public transportation? Is Anakbayan opposed to progress?
