Typhoons “Pedring” and “Quiel” has already left the country but the destruction and floods caused by these typhoons still haunts the residents of Bulacan, Pampanga and Nueva Ecija.
And amidst the crisis faced by the Filipinos, they clamor for the presence of “Father” of the country which is the President Benigno Aquino III.
Critics and even the speaker of the House asked the President to visit the areas affected by the Typhoon and at least have photo ops so that the said residents can at least feel that they are also important to the President and feel encouraged.
Meanwhile, the Malacanang Palace said the President has been busy fixing the Disaster Preparedness of the country that’s why he hasn’t been around for the past days. The preparedness of the country once again gain criticisms for not learning from the past typhoon disasters.
However, in recent news, the President is already visiting the affected areas as of press time. He visited Tarlac first then will visit Bulacan and Pampanga within the day. While affected residents said that more than the presence of the President, what they need is support, concrete action plans and relief goods from the government.
