Like the other netizens, renowned broadcaster Karen Davila has also been angered after seeing the ‘awkward’ situation of a toilet located at Philippine National Railways (PNR) station n España Boulevard in Metro Manila.
The toilet which posted initially by netizen Ehm Diolata on her Facebook showed that the comfort room offered no privacy to the daily commuters of PNR because of being incomplete.
The project which is called ‘Kayo ang Boss Ko (KBK) Toilet Facilities Improvement Project’ costs P293-M pesos. But despite the significant funds allocated in the said project, the toilet doesn’t have a cubicle.
Davila expressed her disappointment on Twitter and also criticized the people behind the failure of the project, asking if they still have shame in themselves.
“Nakakagalit!! Bakit ba tayo ganito? Wala na ba talagang kahihiyan???” Davila wrote in her tweet.
Department of Transport (DOTr) also said that they can’t still fix the comfort room as the project was not formally turned over to the PNR.
According to their statement, the only thing that the DOTr can do is to blacklist the suppliers of the said project.
In another post, Diolata also clarified that she has no intention to humiliate the government and she only posted it to entertain her friends on social media.
She even praised the government for improving PNR stations.
“My post was not meant to humiliate any person or government body. T’was merely for fun, and out of concern as well. I am a PNR commuter since I was a child. I’m a proud Batang Riles, Batang Sta. Mesa. 🙋 That day was the first time I saw a toilet inside a PNR Station. Malinis ang toilet, pero walang divider ang tatlong urinal bowl na naka-install.” Diolata said.
“Nakakaproud makita ang improvements ng PNR from their ticketing system to the newly built stations, to the very accommodating staff.” she added.
