Group says government policy of deregulation and privatization to blame
February 22, 2015
Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares today called on Pres. Benigno Simeon Aquino III to step in and stop the triple whammy of price hikes that will hit the public. There is an impending oil, water and power rate hikes starting this week and would be another burden for Filipino consumers.
Calling it the “height of insensitivity that which will create havoc on the lives” of Metro Manila residents, Bayan Muna Representative Carlos Isagani Zarate strongly condemned the looming water rate hikes of Maynilad and Manila Water as a result of the recent decision of the International Chamber of Commerce favoring the two MWSS concessionaires.
“Walang dapat sisihin dito kundi yung ipinatutupad na policy of deregulation, privatization at liberalisasyon ng Aquino administration. This is the real culprit and the root cause of all these price hikes”, Rep. Zarate said.
