BAYAN MUNA HOLDS PROTEST ACTION VS MERALCO
Airs opposition vs power rate hikes

Bayan Muna partylist conducted a protest action in front of Meralco Kamuning to oppose the impending power rate hike due to the dubious and numerous red and yellow power alerts.

Carrying placards saying; NO TO POWER RATE HIKE! NO TO MISSIONARY CHARGE INCREASE AND MERALCO GANID, protesters even held a die in to highlight their calls.

“Kahit ngayong araw na sinasabi nila na normal na ang power situation ng Luzon grid the damage has been done ay siguradong lolobo na ang singil sa kuryente. Ang nangyayari kasi ay lagi na lang sabay-sabay nasisira ang Sual power plant,Calaca power plant at Pagbilao power plant at maging ang Malaya thermal power plant mula pa noong 2012, pero may mga bago na din tulad ng SCPC, SLPGC at SLTEC,” said Bayan Muna chairman and Makabayan senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares

“Mukhang talagang pinagkakakitaan ng todo ang mga consumers dahil dito at kasama pa ang iba lang pass on charges like the missionary charges,” he added

Rep. Zarate meanwhile said that “Pres. Duterte should immediately order the review of the power supply agreements (PSAs) of these generation companies as well as those in the works like the 7 midnight deal PSA of Meralco- related companies and the ERC, chief among which is the Atimonan One power plant,”

“Dapat nga ay ang mga may-ari ng mga siraing plantang ito ang nagbabayad ng dagdag gastos sa kuryente dahil kasalanan nila ang pagkasira ng mga plantang ito at hindi ng mga consumers kaya hindi dapat tayo ang sinisingil,” ended Rep.Zarate.###
