For AKB, Pacman fight comes first
The militant Bagong Alyansang Makabayan-Bikol (Bayan-Bikol) hit Ako Bicol (AKB) party-list representatives for leaving their distressed constituents in Sorsogon who now suffer from the increased activity of Bulusan Volcano just to watch Rep. Manny Pacquiao’s fight yesterday.
AKB Reps. Rodel Batocabe and Alfredo Garbin Jr. were among the congressmen who flew to the US to watch the match.
According to Tessa Lopez, public information officer of Bayan-Bikol, “they could not have left at a worst time considering that Bulusan is about to erupt and that immediate assistance is needed by their constituents.”
“It is as if they forgot that the volcano is acting up and the towns of Sorsogon are already covered with ash,” Lopez said. (D’Jay Lazaro)
