Cebuano News: PGMA nangusog alang sa extension sa CARP

By Erna Sy Gorne

Manila (30 July) -- Si Presidente Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo nangosug kagahapon alang sa pagpalapad sa Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Law (CARP) ingon nga nangunang listahan sa nasyonal nga pangagamhanan og sa pagpapha alang sa mga "rackets" nga nakahatag ug kadaut sa reporma sa yuta.

Sa iyang ika-8 nga State of the Nation Address (SONA) didto sa Batasan sa Quezon City, ang Presidente miingon nga "there are those who say that agrarian reform is a failure, that our rice importations prove it. There are those who say it is a success—if only because anything is better than nothing. Indeed, people are happier owning the land they work, no matter what the difficulties."

Iyang gitumbok nga sa iyang 2001 SONA "sinabi ko, bawat taon, mamamahagi tayo ng dalawang daang libong ektarya sa reporma sa lupa: 100,000 hectares of private farmland and 100,000 of public farmland, including ancestral domains. Di hamak mahigit sa target ang naipamahagi natin sa nakaraang pitong taon: 854,000 hectares of private farmland, 797,000 of public farmland, and Certificates of Ancestral Domain for 525,000 hectares. Including, over a 100,000 hectares for Bugkalots in Quirino, Aurora, and Nueva Vizcaya."

"Agrarian reform," matud niya, "should not merely subdivide misery, it must raise living standards. Ownership raises the farmer from his but productivity will keep him on his feet.

"Sinimula ng aking ama ang land reform noong 1963. Upang mabuo ito, the extension of CARP with reforms is top priority. I will continue to do all I can for the rural as well as urban poor. Ayaw natin na paglaya ng tenant sa landlord, mapapasa-ilalim naman sa usurero. Former tenants must be empowered to become agribusinessmen by allowing their land to be used as collateral, dugang padayag ni Presidente Arroyo. (PIA Southern Leyte) [top]
