A senior lecturer of UP School of Economics tweeted that some Filipinos’ idea of progress is the Manila Bay white sand beach and said we deserve so much more, so much better.
JC Punongbayan, senior lecturer at UP Diliman School of Economics retweeted the photo shared by a fellow anti-Duterte, who took a swipe at the hype created over an inch of sand?
In that regard, netizen Mark Ian, a staunch Duterte and BBM supporter cannot help but write an open letter addressed to JC Punongbayan for his belligerent remark against the the Manila Bay white sand beach project of the Duterte admin.
Basically, Mark Ian said the problem with critics like JC Punongbayan is they have no other intention but to contradict the government for the sake of it. He asked if the likes of JC Punonongbayan aren’t happy to see that Manila Bay has been restored to its old glory? Many presidents have come and go, did any one of them thought of rehabilitating it? None, Mark Ian said.
Mark Ian ended the open letter saying that it looks to him that he does not want the Duterte government to succeed, that could only mean he is one of those creatures who is pitiful.
Dear JC Punongbayan ,
Sa panahon ni Former President Noynoy nagkaroon ng fish kills sa Manila Bay, bakit hindi ito naging issue sa inyo? Hindi ka nag- feeling scientist at environmentalist noon. Every year may fish kill at sobrang dumi ng Manila bay, bakit ngayon ka nagkaroon ng concern?
Ito ang problema sa inyo na gusto lamang siraan ang pamahalaan. Hindi ba kayo masaya na makita na naging maayos ang Manila Bay? Madaming dumaang pangulo pero may naka isip ba na gawing katotohanan ang rehabilitasyon nito?
Balikan natin ang 2008 kung saan naglabas ang Supreme court ng Writ of Continuing Mandamus directing the DENR at ibang ahensya ng pamahalaan para linisin at i-rehabilitate ang Manila Bay. Bakit sa panahon pa ni President Duterte ito pinatupad at nangyari? Tapos ito kayo , na kung kailan may pagbabago , saka kayo nagmamagaling!
Ang administrasyon ni President Duterte ay kahit papaano, nakikita natin na may malasakit sa kalikasan at sa tao. Bakit hindi nyo nalang pasalamatan na nagkaroon ng Manila Bay rehab bago niyo batikusin ang kasalukuyang administrasyon na gumawa ng mga bagay na dapat ay nagawa ng mga disente?
Dahil parang ayaw mong magtagumpay ang pamahalaan, nangangahulugan yan na isa kang nakakaawang nilalang , JC.
