Kabataan Partylist National Capital Region asked President Benigno Simeon ‘Noynoy’ Aquino about his campaign promises of ‘Daang Matuwid’ through this Facebook page.
As the PNoy adminstration turned one, the group launched its cyber campaign to address the issues faced by the sector and the people. ‘Dear PNoy, ano na?’ is a page created to further register dismay and condemnations of the president’s dismal performance to uplift the condition of the youth and the people.
“We are really disappointed. In his first year as president, PNoy failed to uplift the condition of the youth and the people. More even, PNoy’s policies put us in deeper conditions of poverty and hunger.” Stated Mark Louie Aquino, 2nd Nominee and Spokesperson of Kabataan Partylist NCR.
“Exactly one year ago, he has left the people hoping for his rhetorical change and promises of good governance. And here we are now, asking PNoy, ano na ba talaga? Since day one, we are giving PNoy a failing mark” he added.
The youth group said that they based the mark on PNoy’s over-all performance as leader of the country. And if he dramatically failed, it is due to his systematic habit of implementing anti-people, anti-poor and anti-youth policies. Firstly, they cited the still freedom of former President Arroyo and Aquino’s incapability to put her behind bars as the main perpetrator of huge corruption and human rights’ violation cases.
The group also added Aquino’s inutile programs for the country’s economy as it reflected an increasing rates of unemployment and inflation while wages remained depressed and small local markets continued to fall down. They cried over budget cuts on education, health and social services in exchange of large funds for foreign debt services, military and short-termed social service programs.
They condmened the government’s Private-Public-Partnership (PPP) as ‘patung-patong na pahirap (ppp)’ since it brought people paying for what was supposed to be free as subsidized by the government. They also condmened Aquino’s Conditional Cash Transfer, they said it was a ridiculous program for the condition of extreme poverty in the country. ###
