DASMARIÑAS CITY, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino  III  said in jest he was ready to be run over by a train if the LRT (Light Rail Transit) Line 1 project  from Baclaran  to Bacoor will not be  completed in two years.

Speaking at a campaign sortie of Team PNoy here on Thursday, Aquino promised that the project that can service an estimated 250,000 passengers would be finished in 2015.

“At pag hindi ho nangyari ito, nandyan ho si  Secretary Abaya na nangangasiwa ng proyektong ito, dalawa na kaming magpapasagasa siguro sa train ( Secretary Abaya, who  is supervising  the project, is here.  Maybe we can be run over by a train if this project won’t materialize),” he told  the  jampacked ground at the Dasmariñas High School.

The President was referring to  Transportation Secretary  Joseph Emilio Abaya who was also on stage along with two  senatorial bets—Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino and former Akbayan Representative Risa Hontiveros—and other local candidates.

Senator Franklin Drilon, campaign manager of Team PNoy, was also present.

Aside from the LRT 1 project, Aquino said his government  has also  approved  some P35 billion fund  for Cavite-Laguna expressway .

These reforms, he said, would continue if the people would elect the administration candidates who are supporting the government’s agenda.

    Nakupo, Penoy, sa sinabi mong yan, marami ang mag sasabotahe ng proyekto para hindi matapos ng 2015 para lang makitabg mag pasagasa ka sa Tren, LOL.

    • WeAry_Bat

      Yan ang sana sabihin ko. Pero kung sabihin nya sasagasaan niya ang mga contractors, yan ahead of schedule pa mangyari.

      Sana matapos yang LRT at CavLa (?), CaLag(?, bad it means ghost in bisaya), CaviLag (? sounds gay), CaviLa (?) expresssway.

    • WeAry_Bat

      p.s. sinong blind item na yung taong hindi sumuporta sa kanya?

  • $53950194

    sabi nyo yan ha! tingnan natin…

  • Kiro Nazakato

    What is Senator Drilon and the campaign team doing? Why cant they exact
    discipline from the candidates. This is not acceptable. These absentees
    are putting Pnoy and Team Pnoy in bad light! Wag nyo ikampanya pag
    wala!! Napakaraming free-loaders on as the campaign progressses!! That
    is unfair sa iba na matyagang sumasama sa kampanya!! The candidates who
    easily comes to mind are Cayetano, Escudero, Legarda, Villarm Trillanesm
    Ngaun pati c Poe. Ang masipag sina Hontiveros, Magsaysay, Aquino.
    Koko, at Madrigal. Tandaan nyo yong free-loaders at mapagsamanta. Marami
    rin sa kanila over-confident at individualist, at walang iniintindi
    kundi sarili!! Walang tumutulong sa mahina sa surveys!!!

    • speaksoftlylove

      Di na raw nila kailangang mangampanya at sigurado na raw silang panalo sabi ng SWS at Pulse Asia.

      On the bright side, ok na rin siguro para masabi nila kay PNoy pag nanalo sila na, “Di naman kami nanalo dahil sa kampanya ni PNoy dahil di naman kami umaattend sa sorties ng Team Malisya eh. Nakakabawas pa nga ng boto si PNoy” O di ba, PNoy?

  • brentcom

    penoy, kung hindi matapos sa takdang panahon ang proyektong yan eh ako ng lang sasagasa sa iyo

    • leomar101

      Pre, kinapos na yan ng utak. Wala ng masabing iba kungdi mangloko sa mga tao. Tama naman talagang tawagin siyang mongol eh. Kapag wala ng masabing matino babalikan ulit si Arroyo.Eh hanggang doon na lang ang utak niyang magtrabaho. hahaha.

      • kismaytami

        Baka sisihin na naman niya si pandak dahil binasura raw yung proyekto.

      • leomar101

        Ang alam lang niyang gawin ay manisi, mang-away, maghigante, at mag buhat ng sariling upuan. Plus credit grabber pa. At depensahan ang kanyang mga KKK. Ganoon naman talaga ang may deperensya sa utak eh.

  • riccisan

    we will see, baka Dec. 2015 ah!

  • Rex Robles

    mag dilang-demonyita yan…laking pagdiriwang ang mangyayari (“,).

      • dodong1

        ang tawag dyan ay matinding depression…

  • buritos

    Pnoy pano nman kming tga Mindanao? Buti pa mga taga Luzon kaya
    mong alay ang buhay mo pero pag Mindanao simpleng power problema
    gigisahin mo kmi sa sarili naming mantika.

    • leomar101

      Huwag po ninyong iboto ang Team Patay para malaman ng mongol na may sandata ang mga tao upang tutulan ang kanyang mismanagement sa power crisis diyan po sa Mindanao. By voting anybody except the followers of mongol, shows already na nagkaisa po kayo diyan na ilaglag ang mga tuta ni mongol. Tandaan po ninyo halos hindi ninyo kayang magbayad sa kuryente dahil tataas ang singil after the election. Babawi si Aboitiz sa nagastos niya noong nakaraang presidential election.

      • Allen Douglas

        and Aboitiz is a know crony of Aquino….with Almendras in his cabinet, Aboitiz is secure of his business, with Mindanao as his milking cow…

    • magiting78

      patayin nyo kc muna yung mga MILF, MNLF at Abusayaff para pumasuk mga negosyante sa inyo…mga takot kc negosyante punta dyn tapos yung mga ginawa ng gov’t n mga project hnd mapakinabangan kc sinisira ng mga rebelde at yung ibang highway nilagyan ng tolgate ng MILF n ngungutong cla…

      • buritos

        Ang tapang mo kaibigan. Dapat bigay mo yan sa mga presidente natin taga
        Luzon. Kung ano man ang nangyayari sa Mindanao, sila ang may responsibility. My forebears have given everything to stamp out those rebels
        But our lame duck presidents didnt have the courage to do it because of greed.
        Sabihin mo kay Pnoy na wag pkialaman ang natural resources ng Mindanao
        (Tampakan at Liguasan Marsh) ksi gagamitan nya lang ito pra sa mga taga Luzon. (MRT, FLY OVER AT IBA PA.)

      • ed_dAVAO

        kayong mga taga Luzon dyan kasi ang pumipigil na ubusin sila eh. Ang mga politiko at general ninyo dyan kasi masyado sa pera.

      • frudo

        sana wla ng taga luzon, visaya at mindanao Pinoy tayo lahat, panahon pa ni marcos di naayos ang kapayapaan jan sa mindanao kaya naapektuhan ang pag asenso, now na inaaayos na ng gobyerno baka sakaling magtuloy tuloy na ang kapayapaan at pumunta na ito sa pag asenso,

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        Jobs and transportation development should be spread to all parts of the country evenly. In some part of the PHilippines, TV signal are so poor and only 3 channels available.
        Can’t affor/access the internet. There should be free WIFI zone in every baranggay.

      • Allen Douglas

        And who is supposed to fix this rebellion problem, people in Mindanao or your president in Malacanang?

      • magiting78

        Without the support of localities or civilians no rebellions will succeed…

    • riccisan

      naintindihan ko kayo, now pa lang, taasan niyo na pagkain na binebenta niyo. kayo breadbasket namin dyan di ba? para magising ang nasa gobyerno na huwag din kayo kalimutan.

    • Guest

      bahala na daw kayo sa buhay ninyo..pag bangsangmore na..hayaan mo daw sila hanap power sources…saka wag daw kau storboo..kakapanya siya (si pnoy)

  • nice_boy

    Idugtong mo muna ang LRT from Caloocan to North EDSA. Tapus na yun. Ang problema e si GMA ang nagpasimula ng project. Kaya hindi puweding i-implement. Later na lang after Noynoys term.

  • speedstream2

    The heat of the election campaign notwithstanding, those involved in that LRT project had better get moving and go on the fast-track mode.The top honcho is playing for really big stakes.And it looks like winning is the only way to go.

  • BatangSingapore

    mukhang delikado itong train na ito dahil mamadaliin ma meet lang yun target completion ni abnoy. ampaw kaya pagkagawa nyan?

    • Luthmar

      Bakit, ikaw ba kasi ang gagawa kaya alam mong ampaw?

  • Albert Einstien

    HA HA put it in writing pnoy…yung WAIVER ng BANK DEPOSITS at MEDICAL HISTORY nga di mo kaya..pati yung VIDEO CHALLENGE ni carmen pedrosa ..regarding allegedly pag-inom ng SEROQUEL at ABILIFY mga gamot sa sakit sa bipolar at schizophrenia.. sa youtube ” CARMEN PEDROSA talks about noynoy.. “….sagutin nyo po MUNA yon bago kayo pasagasa sa train …..dapat me closure yun issue….pati yung ibang PROMISES … PROMISE mo na FOI nasan na at HACIENDA luisita bakit kelangan me bayad na 10 billion ang gusto ni justice sereno BAGO nyo sya I-APPOINT na SC CHIEF JUSTICE… e me desisyon ang RTC..na ISULI na sa magsasaka ang LUPA nila.. ….

    Dec. 2, 1985—Manila RTC orders the Cojuangcos to transfer control of Hacienda Luisita to the Ministry of Agrarian Reform, which will distribute the land to small farmers after
    compensating the landowners P3.988 million. The Cojuangcos elevated the case to the Court of Appeals.( after 2 months of this decision MARCOS was deposed)….

  • Billy Reyes

    National Capital Region & Around Provinces spend almost the entire National Budget, I think there is proposal of 600 billion for social housing alone only in NCR.
    Common people the electricity problem in Mindanao could not resolve by not increasing the price.
    What about the remote provinces, some of them still no access to basic education, no health centers etc., I mean this are basic needs of human dignity.
    I think our enemy in our country is the “Imperialism Manila” is not the colonial mentality from outside, our enemy is within inside our country.
    Pls. Mr. President take a close look of the rural areas. Our fishermen, our farmers are the poorest people in our society today, they feed our country but they could not properly feed themselves. We could progress if you neglect this sector.

    • Billy Reyes

      we could not progress if you neglect this sector.

  • MAR AT PNOY THE CHUPA BOYS

    Pnoy: Red my lips mwaah, tapos yang train yan before deadline

    • Luthmar

Philippine Politics! sana nga ay matuloy kasi napakalaking tulong niyan para sa mga taga-Cavite at karatig lugar tulad ng Maynila.

  • D’ Equalizer

    Poor Boss Juan…again being fooled by Noynoying…! Talaga nga’ naman ang buhay – lagi nalang dehado si Juan! Noynoying promise translates to this saying: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” – Walter
    Bagehot

    “There are three classes of intellects: one which comprehends by itself;
    another which appreciates what others comprehend; and a third which neither
    comprehends by itself nor by the showing of others; the first is the most
    excellent, the second is good, the third is useless.” – Niccolo Machiavelli,
    The Prince, 1532 AD

    Unfortunately – Noynoying is the 3rd.

  • JasonBieber

    PNoy sometimes act as if he wants to be a comedian. It doesn’t make sense. Is a President or trying to be a celebrity. There is only one Barack Obama who is able to balance both and some would argue even he cannot.

    But still, PNoy as usual making promises and announcements and when things don’t out he will blame others and fire people…unless of course those people are PNoy KKK then he will make excuses for them as well.

  • Lightning_seed

    Now pa lang magpasagasa k n abnoy at abayang unggoy…sa dami ng problema ng bansa

    • im_earth

      he is solving one of the problem – country infrastructures

    • Luthmar

      Did he inherit a good administration? Problems in the country have been existing since time immemorial. Ikaw ang abnoy at abayang unggoy. Mag-isip ka ng konti. Hwag ka lang mang lait ng tao. Now I called you the same thing, I’m sure you won;t like it,

      • Lightning_seed

        Sumama ka sa kanya pag nagpasagasa si abnoy ha..parehas kayo.. puro sisi sa past admin..3 taon na sa gobyerno eh sinisisi pa din yung dati..pero pag may good news eh inaako..

      • Brax82

        Ironic, kaw pa ng sinabihang magisip, pero kung magpa uto sila parang wala ng bukas haha! mga abnoy talaga.

      • Luthmar

        For the comments above and below, the saying goes:”arguing with a fool only proves that there are two.” God bless you and Brax82

  • im_earth

    how he will be run over by train if LRT1 is not operational if it misses deadline

    • chiebart

      hahahahaha nice one, im_earth!

  • regd

    Nagbibiro lang yung tao tapos bigla nag-lazarus yung mga galit ke PNoy!

    • chiebart

      nagbibiro lang din ang mga iyan. nagbibiro lang pala si PNoy e. palabiro talaga siya no kahit seryosong bagay. lahat na lang dinadaan sa biro. idol ko talaga yang si PNoy.

  • im_earth

    daming bashers ni PNOY. haha

    • Luthmar

      Is that supposed to be funny?

      • im_earth

        obviously

    • Brax82

      dami nya ring bayArang retarded n mga alalays…

  • speaksoftlylove

    This is a lot of chicken dung.

    If PNoy is referring to the train that will run through LRT 1 extension then how can he be run over if it misses the deadline.? How can a train run in an unfinished route from Baclaran to Bacoor?

    As the PDI would put it, PNoy was only telling it in “jest” so how can the people believe in a leader with whom you can’t even determine whether he is just joking or not? Simply pathetic.

    • leomar101

      Depensa lang nila yon tuwing pumalpak ang mongol na yan. Sana panindigan niya na magpasagasa siya ng LRT. Pero mukhang hindi eh, yon ngang pangako niyang FOI na maging batas kapag presidente na siya ay wala ring nangyari. Talagang ipinanganak siyang liar. hisalayer.

  • Fulpol

    Meriam is well known by making proclamations.. afterwards, admitting it was a joke..

    Kris Aquino is well known by making proclamations that she quit showbiz.. later on, she managed to return with a bang pa..

    BS Aquino-Makapili III is well known to make proclamations during his campaign.. but where is now the FOI? that is just one..

    just a symptom of mentally disoriented people… their common trait is manipulative and deceptive…

  • Eva Romero Cabrera

    SAYANG NAMAN ANG TREN KUNG SI PNOY LANG ANG sasagasaan…

    • Luthmar

      Ikaw na lang kaya pasagasa para hindi masayang ang tren. O di ba?

    • kismaytami

      Dapat isama rin yung mga alipores niya.

  • dodong1

    “At pag hindi ho nangyari ito, nandyan ho si Secretary Abaya na nangangasiwa ng proyektong ito, dalawa na kaming magpapasagasa siguro sa train ( Secretary Abaya, who is supervising the project,

    NAGDAMAY PA SI PNOY…

  • jojo_castillo169

    parang namis-interpret ang message na ito.. hindi yata buong message ang nailagay dito??

  • Brax82

    Wag naman! Sa dami ng gung gong dito, pag namatay si Noynoy si Kris nanaman ang ipapalit nila. Mga uto uto pa nman yang mga noytards na yan.

      sinabi mo pa, mga mongol rin kagaya ng idol nila. hahaha

    Aquino ready ‘to be run over by train’ if LRT project misses 2015 deadline

    Ang tagal naman 2015 pa.
    Mauuna pang tamaan ng kidlat si Pnoy bago masagasaan ng tren.
    Sumpa man, tamaan man ako ng kidlat.

    • frudo

      buti nga kahit papano may matatapos na project sa 2015 khit sabihin na matagal pa, eh yun northrail papuntang bulacan nasaan na? ano na nangyari dun? ninakaw lang? ni hindi nasimulan.

    • akongednamzug

      Pare kailanman ay hindi ko gusto na mangyari ang anumang kapahamakan sa aking kapwa. Pero tutal sa iyo naman mismo galing ang sumpa na ikaw ay tamaan ng kidlat, maimtim kong ipagdarasal na sana naman ay ipagkaloob sa iyo ang iyong kahilingan sa lalong madaling panahon.

  • patawad

    Ang maniwala sa abnoy na yan, E n g o t!!!!!

  • vince_bugaboo

    sana di nga matuloy, ano ha, para maging giniling s’ya.

  • ed_dAVAO

    ala Atty Topacio’s patanggal ang itlog nya ha.

  • kismaytami

    Saang riles naman siya magpapasagasa? Sa northrail o kaya’y sa Albay? Kasi dun may riles, wala namang dumadaan na tren.

    Tigilan nyo na pangloloko sa mga residente ng Cavite. Yung Daang-Hari-SLEX Connector nga, 3 years nang nakatiwangwang. Puro kasi kayo PPP diyan sa gobyerno, as in Puro PowerPoint Presentation.

  • babaismael

    Hindi mangyari yan! manalo ang oposisyon at iimpeach sya sa dami ng kalokohan at kapalpakan nya.Mga kapwa Filipino magtulongan tayo ito lang ang paraan na mapalitan natin itong BOBO at TAMAD na PANOT

  • disqusted0fu

    How shallow! Is this what a President of the country would say??? It is more like a statement coming from cheap and corny soap operas. Well, come to think of it, Pnoy’s presidency is exactly like a cheap and corny soap opera… what else can we expect?!

  • disqusted0fu

    And by the way, if Pnoy gets ran over by a train and dies in 2015, that would increase Kris’s chance of getting elected as VP in 2016. We all know that a relative has to pass away first before these Aquinos get elected as public officials. So they better make sure that they get the LRT done in 2015 as promised.

  • lightningshooter

    ha ha ha – come to think of it – pano sya magpapasagasa kung di tapos – gets?

    • Andrei Mendoza

      think harder.. ilan ang train meron sa pilipnas? yung pnaka-mahaba ay yung sa PNR. gets mo? or baka gusto mong bigyan kita ng ‘train tour’ para alam mo na merong palang train sa pinas?

    ang bakla na ito meron na naman gimik

    Sir, konting pansin nmn sa Mindanao. Tulungan nmn natin mga kapatid natin don.
