BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Around 1,058 scholars in the second district of Negros Oriental are affected by the controversy surrounding the Priority Development Assistance Fund.
Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2 nd District) said the fate of the scholars depends on the decision of the Supreme Court that scheduled a hearing Oct. 8 on the PDAF, or the pork barrel, of congressmen and senators.
The district scholars are enrolled in the four campuses of the Negros Oriental State University in Mabinay, Pamplona, Bais and the main campus in Dumaguete City.
