Sun.Star Pampanga - - FRONT PAGE -

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Vice-Gover­nor Den­nis “Delta” Pineda praised the ef­forts of purok chair­men from dif­fer­ent mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and cities in help­ing with the erad­i­ca­tion of il­le­gal drugs in the prov­ince.

This was dur­ing the year-end as­sess­ment on the anti-il­le­gal drug cam­paign in the prov­ince in front of 3,794 purok chair­men Satur­day morn­ing at Bren Z. Guiao Con­ven­tion Cen­ter.

Vice-Gover­nor Pineda said that the job they’ve been do­ing for the past months bore sig­nif­i­cant re­sults like the seizure of the mega shabu lab­o­ra­tory in Arayat and other big lab­o­ra­to­ries and the ap­pre­hen­sion of drug per­son­al­i­ties.

He also en­cour­aged the purok chair­men to con­tinue their job in re­port­ing sus­pects

in­volved in the pro­lif­er­a­tion of il­le­gal drugs. “I ask you to please con­tinue our fight against il­le­gal drugs and let us not be le­nient even if we claimed sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments and ac­com­plish­ments,” he said.

Delta added that the purok chair­men are the most ca­pa­ble point per­sons in get­ting in­for­ma­tion against il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties.

“You only have small ju­ris­dic­tion and you can see those com­ing in and out of your ter­ri­to­ries. Be vigilant and re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity to us so that we can take im­me­di­ate action,” he added.

The purok chair­men re­ceived food packs and fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance af­ter the pro­gram as Christ­mas bonus for their hard­work.

Also present dur­ing the as­sess­ment were board mem­bers Pol Balin­git, Cherry Manalo, and Rosve Hen­son and Pam­panga Po­lice Direc­tor Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Joel Con­sulta.
