LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Governor Nestor Fongwan lambasted the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) for its slow rehabilitation of the Pico Road, a major road for businessmen and residents.
“[The DPWH] should be sensible and sensitive enough to finish this [at this time],” Fongwan said.
Ongoing drainage road repairs at the Pico Road have been giving motorists something to gripe about for the past months while the governor commiserated with local folk saying “dapat bigyan ng attention ang mga lubak nay yan.”
These and other issues hounding the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill have, in the words of principal sponsor Sen Pia Cayetano, been debated for over a year in the Senate “until it was blue in the face.”
Until recently, proponents feared this will still be the case, with staunch critic Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile predicting that the debate will stretch until June 2013 or after the midterm polls.
