Pacquiao eyes P20M farm-to-market road for Glan's remotest village



Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao is now eyeing the construction of a P20 million worth farm-to-market road that will connect Glan Poblacion and the remotest barangay Datal Bukay in Glan, Sarangani .
            Bren Evangelio, Pacquiao’s chief of staff, said aside from his (Pacquiao) Project Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), the congressman is now sourcing out funds from the Department of Agriculture for the construction of the farm-to-market road that would serve as an access road to transport the agricultural products of B’laan farmers living in the said village going to the poblacion.
            “May ilang beses na kasi na nakapunta dito si congressman para mamigay ng tulong kaya nakita nito mismo ang totoong sitwasyon ng mga tao. Noon pa man ay talagang isa na itong Datal Bukay sa mga naka-programa sa kanyang mga proyekto,” Evangelio said. 
            Meanwhile, Evangelio defended Pacquiao from accusations hatched by his  political opponents in which  the congressman was assailed for conducting medical missions to prop up the candidacy of his wife Jinkee who is running for vice- governor of Sarangani 
            Evangelio said the accusations against the congressman was baseless and unfair, saying the congressman has been conducting humanitarian projects even before the election period.   
            “Nakita naman natin na talagang matulungin lalo na sa mga mahihirap si sir Manny, kahit noon pa man na wala pa ito sa pulitika. Kaya wala naman sigurong dahilan para punahin pa nila ang ganitong sistema ng ating kongresista.” Evangelio said.
