NegOr gov to soldiers, cops: Get rid of communist rebels
Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo wants to end communist insurgency in the province.
The Visayan Daily News reported that Degamo directed the military and the police to rid Negros Oriental of communist influence.
Angered by recent atrocities committed by the rebels, including the burning of heavy equipment used in the construction of roads in the hinterland barangays of the province, the politiko said the road networks in mountains from Pansiao, Luyang in Mabinay up to Cabcacaban in Bindoy were crucial for the people in the mountain barangays.
“We don’t like insurgents in the province. You terrorists have no place in Negros Oriental. I’m not joking or fooling around in my work. We are a peace loving people,” said Degamo.
According to him, the provincial government is working to give justice to the people by providing them with basic services.
He also called on local enforcement agencies to reactivate the Bayanihan concept, in cooperation with the Magdegamo medical and dental mission, so the people will experience true and genuine government.
