DND Chief : CPP-NPA enemies of development

The pursuit for peace in the country is never ending.
The President Rodrigo Roa Duterte administration made sure to make the longest maoist rebellion end if not weaken to the point it can never wage any arm rebellion against any instrumentality of the government.

Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has called the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army (CPP-NPA) are the enemies of development, which will explain the spate of persona non grata declarations coming from local government units (LGUs).

This was the answer of DND Secretary when asked by mediamen sought for a comment on why more and more LGUs are declaring the communist rebels as persona non grata.
"First, more and more LGUs are declaring the CPP-NPA as persona non grata because they are finally realizing the deleterious effect of the presence of NPAs in their community. The NPAs prevent development by burning equipment and extort from businessmen," Lorenzana said to Philippine News Agency. 
The Joma Sison led CPP-NPA is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States of America, New Zealand, the European Union, Philippines, and Australia. "They kill those who do not cooperate with them," Lorenzana said.

"The turn around is the result of EO 70 that created a Task Force to end Communist insurgency. It is Whole-of-Government Approach to address this 50-year-old menace," he added.

Aside from extortion and other atrocities, NPAs routinely kill anyone refusing to give in to their demands.
The EO 70 signed by President Duterte last December 4, 2018.
The EO created the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF ELCAC), chaired by the President, “to synchronize the utilization of the government's instrumentalities of power with the capabilities of private sector stakeholders to finally end the 50-year long deceit, lies and atrocities committed by the communist terrorists against the people".
