INUTUSAN ni National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr. sina Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. at Larrine Badoy, kapwa tagapagsalita nf National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC), na tigilan na ang pagkokomento sa isyu ng community pantry.
Sinabi ni Esperon, chairman ng NTF-ELCAC, na inutusan niya sina Parlade at Badoy to “desist in the meantime from making comments about the community pantry issue.”
Aniya, layon nitong matigil ang “kalituhan” ng publiko ukol sa inisyatibo.
“Kapag nagsalita sila akala kasi ng iba the two are against the concept of bayanihan,” paliwanag ni Esperon. “Ang purpose lang naman nito is to avoid heated exchanges as if we are red-tagging or saying that it’s bad. No, we are not, we ourselves are proponents of bayanihan spirit.”
Tinanggap naman nina Parlade at Badoy ang utos na manahimik sa isyu.
“They understand. They also want to support the bayanihan. So if ang sabi nila kung nagiging are unclear and muddles the perception about community pantry, then they can desist,” ani Esperon.
