Guv explains collapse
of river control project
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo yesterday defended himself against criticisms over the collapse of the river control project in Ajong, Sibulan town, during typhoon Queenie last week, saying nobody can control destruction from nature’s attacks.
The project was constructed using the controversial calamity fund, and could not be completed because the Department of Budget and Management withdrew the other half of the funds for it.
