hmm. just heard from my kapitbahay whose son has a friend working sa national mental hospital that indeed the property was for sale but not any longer because nabenta na daw, gayon din daw ang post office, at least that’s the buzz sa mental.
kung totoo ito, then maaaring totoo na ibinebenta rin, at baka nabenta na rin, ang muntinglupa penitentiary, ang welfareville, at ang home for the aged.
kung totoo, paano na ang mga bilibid at mga juvenile delinquent? paano na ang mga hibang at ang matatanda na alaga ng gobyerno? nadagdagan pa ang relocation problems natin? ano ba yan.
of course the government is sort of denying it. confirming it?
Deputy presidential spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo explained the administration has been implementing the privatization program of the government.
Fajardo made the explanation in reaction to the statements of Sen. Aquilino Pimentel Jr. that the administration is engaging in a “midnight sale” of government assets.
Pimentel said the rush in the sale of government assets is designed more to fatten the pockets of corrupt officials in the remaining months of President Arroyo’s term of office.
… “Privatization has long been a program of our administration and I think if there are allegations such as the one that Senator Pimentel has been saying, I think if they can be proven, charges can be filed against the government officials, who may be tagged by evidence,” Fajardo said.
ah, privatization. pagkakakitaan ang mga lupain. well, sana ang ibinebenta lang ay yung excess land na hindi ginagamit. at sana ipaalam naman sa taong-bayan kung bakit kailangan nang ibenta ngayon. at kung sino-sino ba yang mga namimili ng pagkalaki-laking mga lupain na yan. kung pilipino o banyaga. at para saan. o para kanino.
