Hindi pa nga natatapos ang isyu ng pambabato sa bagong Philippine National Railways, ngayon ay muntikan namang mapinsala ang tren dahil sa gulong at yero na inilagay sa riles.
Sa kuha na larawan ni PNR GM Junn Magno, makikita na intensyonal na nilagay sa gitna ng riles ang gulong at yero upang mapinsala ang tren.
Hindi lamang pinsala ang maaaring mangyari kundi maaari ring manganib ang buhay ng mga mananakay rito.
Mabuti na lamang at huminto ang tren bago paman nito masagasaan ang nilagay na harang doon.
Samantala, nagbigay naman ng pahayag ukol rito si DOTr Director for Communications Goddes Hope Libiran.
Kinondena ni Libiran ang isyu ng pambabato sa PNR trains dahil nilalagay umano nito sa alanganin ang buhay ng marami.
Bilang mga Pilipino umano ay dapat tulungan natin ang pamahalaan dahil pagmamay-ari rin natin ito. Dapat protektahan at alagaan natin ang ating mga infrastracture upang magamit pa ito sa mahabang panahon.
Saad pa niya, nakipag-ugnayan na umano sila sa mga otoridad upang maaksyonan ito at mapanagot ang sino mang dapat managot.
Panawagan rin siya sa publiko na kung maaari ay i-report kaagad sa anumang ahensya ng pamahalaan kung may mga ganito ring problema o maaktuhan nila ang pagsira sa tren.
“There is no place in society for these dastardly acts, especially at a time when when your government is doing everything it can to provide the riding public with modern transport infrastructure,” saad ni Libiran.

AN APPEAL TO THE PUBLIC
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) is one with the Philippine National Railways (PNR) in strongly condemning the stone throwing incidents which have damaged our trains, and are potentially putting the commuter in harm’s way.
We are now closely coordinating with the proper law enforcement authorities to immediately investigate and hold responsible these hooligans and misfits.
The TRAINS are owned by the Filipino people, and we all should do our part in helping their maintenance and upkeep, and help ensure that we protect these infrastructure investments so that majority of our fellow citizens may enjoy their long term use.
These recent stone-throwing reports that have damaged our refurbished trains are indeed disturbing, and disruptive of the operations of the PNR, which has been striving to revitalize this important mass transportation alternative. To date, there have been 14 incidents of stone-throwing recorded from December 2 to 21, 2019 alone.
Fortunately, the new trains from Indonesia were not one of those which were damaged, though there were serious attempts to damage the same by dumping debris along its path.
As we institute measures to reinforce protection of public property, we would also like to seek the cooperation of the public to help us in reporting these dangerous misdeeds. Your support and assistance will go a long way in helping us put a stop to this nonsensical activity that only endangers lives and property.
There is no place in society for these dastardly acts, especially at a time when when your government is doing everything it can to provide the riding public with modern transport infrastructure.
