Tulfo to go after power generation, transmission, distribution thefts

MANILA — Senator Raffy Tulfo assured the public he will go after personalities who are involved in anomalies in the generation, transmission, and distribution of energy.

The senator also revealed his intentions to give energy-related policies top priority in order to minimize the burden on Filipino consumers.

“I came to know the many problems facing consumers, lalo na ang mahihirap, from my show ‘Wanted sa Radyo.’ Kaya ngayong nandito na ako sa Senado, sisiguraduhin kong maaksyunan ko agad ang mga kinakaharap na problema ng taumbayan, lalo na ang madalas na brownout sa mga probinsya, kabilang na diyan ang Palawan, Bataan, at Davao,” he said.

“Maniningil din ako. For one, kung kailangan ipatawag, ay ipapatawag natin ang mga politikong kapitalista, who, often than not, ay kasosyo o direktor ng electric cooperatives na dahilan ng frequent brownout sa mga probinsya,” Tulfo added.

Tulfo said he would do his promise for the Filipino citizens—to serve them.

“Regardless if they are my friends or not, maniningil ako, because that’s my promise to the Filipinos who voted for me: That once I get elected as a Senator, I’ll make sure na lahat ng nilapit nila sa akin na problema ay madidinig sa Senado. I want to hold Senate hearings as soon as possible. Dapat aksyon agad,” he said.

He also said he is ready to set meetings and hear the proposals of experts and stakeholders. (ai/mtvn)
