Bayaran nagkakalinaw na: Batangas ROW claimants, DPWH pinagharap ni Ping

Nakipagpulong ang ROW claimants sa Batangas at kinatawan ng DPWH sa tanggapan ni Sen. Lacson Enero 14, 2019.

Patapos na ang matagal at nakakainip na paghihintay.

Ito ang mga saloobin na baon pauwi ng mga residente ng Batangas na nagtungo sa tanggapan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa Senado, tangan-tangan ang mga kopya ng mga dokumento para sa lupaing pag-aari nila na tinamaan ng mga proyekto ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Ang mga residente na pawang mga magsasaka ay kabilang sa tinatayang 140 pamilyang nagmamay-ari ng mga lupain na nahagip ng road right-of-way (RROW) na tangay ng mga proyektong imprastraktura ng naturang ahensiya na magpahanggang ngayon ay naghihintay na mabayaran sa perwisyong inabot alinsunod sa batas.

Bagama’t naging emosyonal ang simula ng meeting ng mga residente at kinatawan ng DPWH, nakahanap sila ng “middle ground,” ayon kay Lacson.

“I advised the Regional Director of the DPWH Region IV-A to simply find a solution instead of arguing and looking for problems. There’s P250 million in ROW appropriations for the Batangas project and there should be no reason to make those poor souls wait,” ani Lacson.

Long Wait for Compensation Finally Over for ROW-Affected Landowners in Batangas

After an emotional start, right-of-way claimants from Batangas find middle ground with DPWH officials led by Region IV-A director Samson Hebra during a meeting in the office of Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Monday, Jan. 14.

The long wait for compensation may finally be over for landowners affected by right-of-way (ROW) issues involving projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Some of the landowner-claimants from Batangas met with regional representatives of the DPWH on Monday afternoon, in the office of Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson.

While the meeting between the Batangas ROW claimants and the DPWH representatives started on a highly emotional note, the parties eventually found a middle ground, Lacson noted.

“I advised the Regional Director of the DPWH Region IV-A to simply find a solution instead of arguing and looking for problems. There’s P250 million in ROW appropriations for the Batangas project and there should be no reason to make those poor souls wait,” he said.

“I will continue to urge the DPWH leadership to render justice especially to the poor claimants who don’t have the wherewithal to have their claims processed and finalized,” he added.
