Gov. Remulla may apela para sa middle class, sumulat kay Pangulong Duterte
UMAPELA si Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla kay Pangulong Duterte para sa mga middle class families.
Sa isang open letter sa pangulo Lunes ng hapon, ipinost ni Remulla ang kanyang mahabang sulat sa kanyang official Facebook page.
Sa kanyang sulat, binati nya ang pangulo sa determinasyon na labanan ang banta ng COVID-19.
Ang sulat anya ay upang iapela ang mga nasa middle class.
“I write to you today to appeal for the middle class. I come from a province that is over 70% migrants. People who have climbed their way up in life: buying a house on mortgage; sending their children through college; having a their 1st car or motorcycle on a 5 year instalment basis. 300,000 of them work in manila. 400,000 directly (factory workers) and indirectly (feeding, clothing, driving, retailing) from our economic zones. Our poverty incidence is one of the lowest in the country and our GDP per capita is just about the highest of all LGU’s outside of metro Manila.”
Sinabi nya, malaki ang naging epekto ng COVID-19 sa kanyang probinsya, pero hindi naman daw siya nanghihingi para sa local na gobyerno ng Cavite. Dito na nya binangit ang Social Amelioration Card, ang ayudang ibibigay ng pamahalaan sa mga naapektuhan ng enhanced community quarantine sa Luzon.
“The recent announcement of the issuance of a Social Amelioration Card gave people a lot of hope. In the past 3 weeks most have depleted their savings. Families of 8 stay in housing units 24 to 40 square meters small. Cramped as they are, they are generally optimistic people. Despite all that, they are hurting.” sulat ni Remulla.
Dito na niya binanggit ang mga nakatira sa subdivision o ang mga middle class.
Ani Remulla, ang mga nakatira rito ay halos mga double income homes, OFW’s, single mothers, transport operators at entrepreneurs.
“As grand as their gated villages sound, they are middle class people who see their pay checks every month deducted of their SSS,GSIS, Pag-ibig and salary loans, and the largest part-income taxes.”
“As governor, I am respectfully asking that you consider them to be part of the social amelioration program. They may not get as much as the poorest of the poor but please consider their welfare. They are often over looked. They pay the most taxes. They keep our economy alive. They are mostly law abiding citizens. They need a break.”
Sa huli sinabi niya na sana raw ay mabasa ito ng pangulo bilang isang sulat para sa mga tao at hindi dahil sa politika.
