RAILWAY IS ORIGINAL IDEA OF DUTERTE AND AYALA
Former Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo “RDR” del Rosario, Sr. has shot down First District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez for claiming credit for the Mindanao Railway System (MRS).
RDR said initial concepts of the MRS was first proposed in 1988 by then Davao City Mayor now President Rodrigo Duterte.
Reports have quoted Alvarez as saying the MRS is rising from the ground because, as then Speaker of the House of Representatives, he provided funds for the mega-project. Alvarez made the claim even as the MRS will be funded with a loan from the Chinese government.
RDR said credit should go to President Rodrigo Duterte and his “Build, Build, Build” program of infrastructures.
