Ayaw sa bukbok rice! Gov Marcos to Piñol: Suggest solutions to rice shortage

Sep 14, 2018 @ 11:57

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos slammed Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol for his suggestion that Filipinos should still eat “bukbok” rice.

The Ilocos Norte politiko said Piñol was just making excuses instead of providing a solution to the rice shortage.

“Nandiyan na kainin daw ang binuk­bok na bigas dahil wala naman daw kaso ito basta hugasan lang nang mabuti o kaya ay kumain na lang daw ng corn rice. Susme, ano ba namang katwiran ‘yan? Isang malaking palusot na la­mang ‘yun at tila isang pangmamaliit sa ating mga kababayan,” Marcos said.

“Parang sinasabi na kung wala rin naman kayong pambili ng mahal na bigas ay magtiis sa binukbok na bigas. Bakit hindi solusyunan, bakit hindi kumilos ang ating mga opisyal para mapababa ang napakamahal na presyo ng bigas?” she added.

Marcos lamented how some government officials keep giving flawed reasonings instead of searching for more effective solutions to problems.

“Haaayy… kung minsan, hindi talaga natin maintindihan ang pangangat­wiran ng ating mga opisyal, kung pu­wedeng lumusot sa pangangatwirang baluktot ay talagang ilulusot. Please lang, gawan n’yo na ito nang paraan. Kalurky na kayo!” she said.
