Officials condemn grenade blasts

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday condemned the firing of two M-203 grenade launchers into the residential compound of Mayor Lourdes Escalante in Manapla town Wednesday night, calling it politically motivated and an act of desperation.

The firing of the grenades is a sign of defeat and desperation by their political opponents, who are resorting to intimidation, the governor said, but did not name the persons he was referring to.

“I condemn the action, we should win the election, not by the use of force but by the ballots," he said. moremoremore
