Kasabay ng dasal para sa isang mapayapang eleksyon sa Abra at iba pang hotspots sa bansa, kasama rin sa plano ni independent presidential candidate Sen. Ping Lacson ang matuldukan ang kultura ng karahasan sa mga naturang lugar.
Sinabi ni Lacson nitong Martes sa kanyang pagbisita sa Abra na tapusin na ang pamamayagpag ng mga warlord na kumokontrol sa mga residente at lalong nagpapahirap sa kanilang buhay.
“Of course ginawa ko noong Chief PNP ako – pay special attention not only to Abra but in areas na traditionally historically magulo, not only during election period,” ani Lacson sa kanyang panayam sa media.
Even as he prayed for peaceful elections in Abra and other hotspots on May 9, independent presidential aspirant Sen. Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson has mapped out a plan to put an end to the culture of violence in such areas.
Lacson, who was in Abra on Tuesday, also stressed it is time to end the culture where “warlords” keep residents poor and ignorant, and always dependent on them.
“Of course ginawa ko noong Chief PNP ako – pay special attention not only to Abra but in areas na traditionally historically magulo, not only during election period (I have done this when I headed the Philippine National Police – pay special attention not only to Abra but to areas that have been traditionally and historically prone to violence not only during the election period),” he said in an interview with media.
