Aquino has done nothing to solve power woes

/ 10:49 PM April 11, 2013

President Aquino is washing his hands of the Mindanao power crisis. Since 2010, this problem has been squarely, pointedly and repeatedly brought by the people of Mindanao to his attention. Now, the President apes Pilate, telling the people of

Mindanao that they have to bite the bullet.

“You pay a higher rate, or you will have no electricity.” This exhortation can only come from a sadist president. He should have acted in 2010. But he has not done anything or come up with a tangible solution. He should have tapped alternative sources like solar, biogas and mini-hydro. Even so, without doing anything to solve the problem, he has the temerity to say, “no increase, no light.” The President is either out of his nutshell or has other reasons of his own.
