Barangay Chairman in Tarlac declares delivery riders not exempted from curfew, only food chain outlets

After the video of the infamous barangay personnel who told a food rider that “lugaw” is not essential went viral, a Barangay Chairman of Sto. Cristo Tarlac followed suit.

This time, the Barangay Chairman of the said barangay stopped the delivery riders from Food Panda et. al because according to him, they are not exempted from curfew.

When the delivery rider mentioned that Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque already announced that delivery riders are exempted 24/7 because they are also front liners, the Barangay Chairman said to the effect that the words of Sec. Roque are no good because the LGU have the last say on the matter. In fact, the Barangay Chairman said that this was tackled during their meeting. He added that fast food restaurants remained open because they are there for the medical front liners who will order takeout food.

The video was uploaded by a netizen named Allan Pontawi claiming to share awareness and apparently to solicit the sympathy of netizens. The video went viral and eventually picked up by other FB pages, including Tapang Gala.

Perhaps, Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque should once and for all, make a categorical statement on the issue to avoid further confusion between the food delivery riders and the LGU, especially at the local level because his name was mentioned in the video.

Let us read the selected comments of netizens below in reaction to the video.
