Bicol airport attack proves NPA just extortionist bandits: DILG




Extortionist bandits.
The attack by the members of the New People’s Army (NPA) at the Bicol Interntional Airport in Daraga, Albay prompted the Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año to describe the NPA’s as such.


“Attacks like this only prove that they are ordinary bandits. Kung talagang pag-unlad ng bansa ang hangarin nila, hindi nila sisirain ang mga proyekto na makatutulong nang malaki sa ating mga kababayan (If they are really supporting the country's progress, they will not destroy projects that will greatly benefit our fellow Filipinos),” Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said in a statement.

The Bicol International Airport uis included in the Build Build Build project of the Duterte administration making it as a priority project for the region. Target of completion of the said airport will be in 2021.
Año said the attack could be related to the communists demand for revolutionary taxes which will fund their terroristic activities in the area.
“Wala ng idolohiyang ipinaglalaban ang mga kaliwa. Puro perwisyo na lang sila sa ating mga kababayan. Sa pamamagitan ng mga pag-atake na ito, patuloy silang nakakapangikil ng pera sa kanilang mga biktima. (The leftists do not have any ideology to fight for. They are a just a menace to our fellow Filipinos. Through this attack, they continue to extort money from their victims) We will put a stop to it,” he stressed.



The DILG Sec reminded all LGU’s to be vigilant in guarding and protecting government infrastructure projects within their respective jurisdictions from such attacks.
“The NPA will continue with their shenanigans, hence, LGUs must always be on their toes to protect their jurisdictions from their attacks,” Año said.
