The Tinglayan municipal government has been commended by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for complying with the Masa Masid requirements.
The DILG said only Tinglayan has complied with organization of social facilitators and enrolment of Masa Masid volunteers.
The Masa Masid program aims to encourage the participation of the citizenry in government at the local level and in deterring crimes.
Kalinga, which was declared “drug-cleared” in February, is again drug-affected after several alleged drug personalities were arrested.
The DILG said it will monitor Kalinga’s local government units in their compliance in the Masa Masid program.#
