Imee Marcos urges government to intervene in rise of galunggong prices

0 679

Senator Imee Marcos called on the government to intervene in the recent spike in the price of galunggong in the market.

The Ilocos Norte politiko said galunggong or GG is now even more expensive than pork or chicken in some markets.

The spike in the so called poor man’s fish is being attributed to the African Swine Fever (ASF) scare.

“Ang sosyal na talaga ng GG ngayon dahil sa sobrang mahal. Hindi na siya poor man’s fish,” Marcos said.

“Mas mahal pa ang GG sa presyo ng manok, baboy at baka. Hindi naman siguro dapat nakanganga na lang tayo sa presyuhang ito. Gawan sana ito ng paraan ng gobyerno,” she added.
