Cebu City 1st District Representative Raul Del Mar said he will not attend future Regional Development Council (RDC-7) meetings anymore.

The Cebu politiko walked out of a RDC meeting on March 16 after finding out that his proposed budget for three underpass projects were not included in 2019 Programs, Activities and Projects (PAP) of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Del Mar said he was surprised by the development.

“If things are going to work this way, it’s better we don’t attend meetings here anymore if our sentiments are not considered and we just go on,” he said.

Del Mar said he will raise his concerns when the PAP budget is deliberated in the House of Representatives.
