Gov't kicks off projects
at RPA settlement site


The development of a Peace and Development Community (PDC) site in Negros Occidental, identified by the former rebel armed group, kicked off yesterday even as the peace closure agreement between the government and the Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Manggagawa-Pilipinas/Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade (Tabara- Paduano wing) is still under review by President Benigno Aquino III.

Earlier, Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. and some stakeholders, including the RPMP-RPA-ABB , expressed their frustration over the delay in the signing of the closure agreement.

Undersecretaries Maria Cleofe Sandoval and Luisito Montalbo of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process yesterday led the groundbreaking ceremony of a P37 million farm to market road in Brgy. Locotan, about 49 kilometers away from the Kabankalan City proper that used to be among the conflict-affected communities in southern Negros.
