Solon wants Marcos bust repaired to show respect for late prexy

BAGUIO CITY – The congressman of this lone district, while admitting he is not a Marcos loyalist, said Filipinos should accept the fact that the former strongman did a lot of good things that must be treasured by the people.

To show appreciation, Rep. Mauricio G. Domogan said government agencies must work for immediate rehabilitation of the damaged bust of former President Ferdinand E. Marcos located in Taloy Sur, Tuba, Benguet to serve as another tourist attraction in the Cordillera and to appreciate his good deeds during his administration.

His intention, he said, is to show respect to the former ruler who had undeniably done many good things for the country.

“Let us try to adopt the good deeds of former leaders, learn from their mistakes, and see to it that these will not be repeated again,” Domogan said.

The Baguio lawmaker said what is happening in the country today in the event of change of administration is that all programs and projects of the outgoing leader, even if these are good for the people, are scrapped and changed by his or her successor.

Because of this system, he said, there is no continuity in the implementation of good programs and projects, and as a result, the interest of the people is compromised in favor of the interest of cronies or dummies.

He said it is high time for the Filipinos to become politically mature so that development could flourish in the rural areas and poor people would be given a decent sources of livelihood.

What is disgusting about Philippine politics, Domogan said, is that “we are sore losers and use our loss as a vehicle to attack personally the ones who prevailed in a political exercise.”

Domogan said this unhealthy political situation in the country is jeopardizing the efforts of national and local leaders to institute reforms that could bring the country to greater heights.

He criticized the opposition for being a fault finder.

Domogan said instead of collaborating with the administration in the efforts to come out with realistic government programs for the benefit of the people, the opposition is creating unrest and anxiety. – Dexter A See(NorthernPhilippineTimes)


My Take:

Nauubusan na bang mga proyektong makukurap at pati ang letseng rebulto ng diktador ay nais ipa-repair?

Nagtatanong lang…
