DAR eyes win-win solution;
Install us now, farmers say

Regional Director Stephen Leonidas of the Department of Agrarian Reform yesterday said he is exploring a win-win solution for the Negros Occidental provincial government and the farmers demanding to be immediately installed on its property in barangays Sta. Rosa and Canlandog, Murcia.

The land acquisition process under the agrarian reform program could take more than nine months and could be further delayed by legal moves by the provincial government, so he is working on a proposal to allow the farmers to till a small section of the property in the meantime as a source of livelihood, Leonidas said.

He said he will present the proposal agreed on by Gov. Alfredo Marañnon Jr. to the farmers but it depends on whether they will accept it. moremoremore

family of de Lima's driver'

MANAPLA, Negros Occidental – The family of Ronnie Palisoc Dayan, a driver of Senator Leila de Lima being alleged by Sandra Cam, president of the Whistleblowers Association of the Philippines, to have  a multi-million house in this town, turned out to be living in poverty.

  Contrary to claims that Dayan built a multi-million house for his wife, Norly Magallanes and four children in Manapla town, they were living in a squatter area of Brgy. 1-B, Manapla, according to their relatives.
