Muntinlupa Representative Ruffy Biazon personally experienced technical glitches while onboard a train of the MRT-3 earlier Tuesday.

The train had been on a stop for eight minutes at the Boni Station and all passengers were told to descend the train when it arrived at the Shaw Boulevard Station due to a technical glitch.

He said some passengers even felt unwell because aside from the thick crowd inside the trains, its electricity also went down.

The lawmaker calls on the Department of Transportation to immediately act on the glitches that happen in MRT so passengers will no longer experience another inconvenience.

"We are calling DOTr to fast track the solution they are saying regarding the maintenance contractor which they blame as the reason for all of this. Proceed as fast as they can to replace, if needed, the maintenance contractor," Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon said.
