Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Assistant Secretary Celine Pialago has pummeled what she depicted as Kabataan Party-List Rep. Sarah Jane Elago’s endeavors at “harm control” following the passing of Keith Absalon in the possession of the New People’s Army (NPA).
Pialago, who fills in as the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) representative on open issues and youth concerns, even moved the young legislator to advise individuals from the NPA “to set out their arms and take the way of harmony”.
The NPA is the tactical wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), which the Philippine government considers as psychological militants.
“In PR (advertising) it’s simply a distraction, harm control. Masabi lang na may ginagawa. Alam naman namin ang kanilang talagang intensiyon (They simply need to create the impression that they’re accomplishing something. Yet, we understand what their actual goals are),” Pialago said in a meeting over DZAR radio Thursday, June 10.
The NTF-ELCAC official was responding to Elago’s requires the resumption of harmony talks between the Philippine government and CPP following the demise of 21-year-old football player Keith Absalon and his cousin, Nolven. The two were killed by a people killing mine (APM) of the NPA in Masbate last Sunday.
The neighborhood socialist development claimed up “with regret” to the killings, which was consequently denounced over via online media. Reports showed that the Absalons were even shot at short proximity.
Pialago clarified that the slowed down harmony talks, which CPP author Jose Maria “Joma” Sison himself needed continued by requesting the NPA to dispatch more horrible assaults, is “not unequivocal and has no elements”.
“Kung energy talaga ng harmony talk, give up muna lahat ng maka-kaliwa, lahat ng nagpapakalat ng kadiliman. Kung energy talaga nila ng kapayapaan (If they truly need harmony talks, then, at that point the entire radical development the individuals who spread evil should give up. That is, in the event that they truly need harmony),” she said.
Pialago in like manner guaranteed that it’s “normal information” that Elago and her kindred individuals from the Makabayan Bloc in the House of Representatives are “fronts” of the CPP.
“Ilan bata dad ang masasayang ang pangarap? (The number of more young people will have their fantasies squandered?)” she asked, clearly alluding to Keith.
She pledged that the NTF-ELCAC will keep on teaching Filipino youth to get them far from the span of socialist fear monger gatherings.
