According to Rep. Nograles, the six janitors receiving more than P83,000 per month should be a lot richer than most bank manager ang government officials with a total of P18.050 million allotted just for six personnels.

When compared to a bank manager, the MRT-3 janitors is surely receiving a high salary, bank managers earns from P40,000 to P60,000 per month while government officials with Salary Grade 26 equivalent to Director II receive less than P83,000 per month.

Rep. Nograles was quoted as saying “The DOTC entered into this BURI maintenance service contract and Dalian Locomotive supply contracts with so much haste to the point of disregarding national interest and public welfare. Now we are paying for the previous administration’s sins. This should stop now. No more payments until the procurement laws are followed correctly,” he stated.
