Cynthia Villar Blasts Philippine Carabao Center
CYNTHIA VILLAR – Here’s the reason why Senator Cynthia Villar called the Philippine Carabao Center a “failure.”
Politician and businesswoman Cynthia Villar is the richest Senator in the Philippines. She is also known for her controversial remarks regarding the issues concerning the people.
Cynthia is the wife of billionaire businessman Manuel “Manny” Villar Jr. She’s the one who founded the Villar Foundation. Prior to her stint as senator, she’s a long-time mayor of Las Piñas and a congressman.
Based on a report from ABS-CBN, Sen. Cynthia Villar reprimand the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) on Tuesday for allocating some 28 million pesos for its “milk feeding program.” She called the country’s dairy industry a “failure” because they are spending the people’s money on unnecessary items.
The senator’s criticism started after the executive director of the agency Arnel del Barrio said that they will “participate actively” in the Department of Education (DepEd) and Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) milk feeding programs. He said some 28 million pesos will be spent for Central Luzon alone for the project.
According to the report, Sen. Cynthia Villar said milk feeding is not the job of PCC. She said their job is to produce carabao and set up carabao processing centers where DSWD and DepEd can buy from.
“Hindi trabaho ng Carabao Center ang mag-feed ng milk. Ang trabaho mo, mag-produce ka ng mga carabao at gumawa ka ng mga processing center ng carabao para yan ang bibilhan ng DepEd at DSWD…”
“Pagsulat namin ng batas, hindi ikaw ang gagasta sa feeding. Bibili lang sa inyo,” she added.
Based on the report, Cynthia Villar said Arnel del Barrio is into unnecessary activities and not following their instructions that’s why their agency is a failure.
“Ikaw, kung ano-ano ang ginagawa mo. Kahit sabihin ko sa iyo ano dapat mo gawin, ayaw mo sumunod, kaya failure kayo eh,” Villar said.
She also accused the PCC executive director of using the funds elsewhere. Earlier this year, she blamed the Philippine dairy industry for malnutrition in the country.
