VP Leni slams Duterte Admin for prioritizing Manila Bay white sand project over needed aid for poor families

 


The Vice President is slamming the idea of putting white sand in Manila Bay.

Vice President Leni Robredo is putting in question the government’s ‘insensitive’ move to put white sand on Manila Baywhen in this time of pandemic the government cannot provide financial aid to the poorest families.

In her weekly radio show, she said the Duterte administration is sending a wrong message with the physical beautification of Manila Bay,  which comes as the country’s economy is reeling from catastrophic effects brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Robredo believes that it is utterly wrong to give priority to the said project when there’s health crisis that has placed a lot of people’s livelihood and health at risk.

 

“Parang iyong news items, plano pa ito since 2019. Pero sa akin, parang napaka-insensitive na gagawin mo iyan sa height ng pandemic, na ang daming nagugutom. Ang daming naghihirap, gagawin mo iyong pag-beautify,” Robredo said.

 

MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo has questioned the government’s ‘insensitive’ move to put white sand on Manila Bay when it cannot provide financial aid to the poorest families as she suggested.

Robredo said during her radio program on Sunday that the government sends a wrong message with the physical beautification of Manila Bay, which comes as the country’s economy is reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Even if the plan to place white sand on Manila Bay’s shores along Roxas Boulevard is an old one, the Vice President believes it is wrong to prioritize this amid a health crisis that has placed a lot of people’s livelihood and health at risk.

 

“Parang iyong news items, plano pa ito since 2019. Pero sa akin, parang napaka-insensitive na gagawin mo iyan sa height ng pandemic, na ang daming nagugutom. Ang daming naghihirap, gagawin mo iyong pag-beautify,” Robredo said.

 

(I saw in the news items that this was a plan since 2019.  But for me, it seems insensitive to do that at the height of a pandemic, where a lot is going hungry.  A lot are struggling, but you prioritize beautification?)


“[…] Ang isa sa mga suggestions ko, na iyong mga pinakamahihirap na pamilya, bigyan sana ng parang pantawid-buhay man lang. Ang suggestion ko nga, 5,000 [pesos] to the poorest families habang naka-lockdown pa tayo. Ang sagot nila, walang pera. Parang sa akin, maling mensahe: Nagsasabi kayong walang pera, tapos nakikita iyong ganito,” she added.

 

(One of my suggestions was to give the poorest families assistance that could make them stay afloat.  My suggestion was to give P5,000 to the poorest families while we are still on lockdown.  They said there is no money.  But for me, this sends a wrong message as you said we have no money, but you can do these things.)
