Erin Tañada urges Filipinos to scrutinize anti-poverty measures of current, past admins
Opposition senatorial candidate Erin Tanada called on the public to scrutinize the anti-poverty measures instituted by the current and past administrations.
The Quezon politiko said the fight against poverty post-EDSA seem to have been fruitless.
“Lahat ng administrasyon kasi, mula noon pagkatapos ng EDSA, parating ang sinasabi nila, labanan ang kahirapan. Ang problema pagkatapos ng administrasyon, walang exit interview, nanalo ba tayo o hindi? Eh sa nakikita po natin, halos lahat ng administrasyon na sinasabi ‘yun, mukhang hindi tayo nanalo,” Tañada said.
He also said addressing poverty should go beyond statistics.
“Ang tanong, binabalikan ba nila ang mga magsasaka at tanungin, ‘Nag-iba ba ang buhay ‘nyo? Umunlad ba ang buhay ‘nyo?’ Kung ginawa po natin ‘yan, malalaman po natin ang sagot na ‘Hindi.’ Bakit? Baon sa utang. In other words, they just hit the numbers but they’re in debt,” Tañada said.
