Roman frowns on reopening of Bataan nuclear plant: ‘Baka obsolete na ‘yan’
Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman has revealed her position on the proposal to reopen the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant in her province, saying she is against it as she wants to protect her constituents from even the “slightest risk of danger.”
Over Facebook Live on Friday, the lawmaker expressed her disapproval of the proposal to operate the Bataan plant with an “angry face” emoji.
“Ibig sabihin, blang mamamayan at congresswoman ng unang distrito ng Bataan, di po ako sang-ayon sa muling pagbuksa ng Bataan Nuclear Power Plant,” Roman said.
“Isa lang po akong mamamayan, and my opinion is as valid as anyone,” she added.
“Bilang mamamayan dito sa Orani… I feel di po mapapanatag an gating kalooban na mayroon na isang lumang power plant na muling bubuksan,” Roman said.
“It’s been more than 30 years yata na sarado, 25-30 years na di operational. In fact it was never operational,” she said.
“Baka obsolete na ang technology. Baka may cracks and fissures na. And of course, if there is the slightest risk of danger sa aking mga kababayan, syempre di naman po ako papayag,” Roman said.
“Bilang isang congresswoman, it’s my duty to protect the welfare of my constituents,” she said.
