Is PNoy to blame for the recent flooding in Luzon?

When former President Gloria Arroyo (GMA) was in power, people were quick to blame her government for what happened during the flooding brought about by typhoon Ondoy in September 2009. Yes, her government could have done more to prevent the flooding but the deluge brought forth by the rains induced by the storm that caused the overflowing of dams and rivers was unprecedented. In fact, incumbent President President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino was quick to take advantage of the public’s anger when it happened a few months before the Presidential election in 2010. He promised that things would greatly improve under his regime. Most Filipinos realize now that what he said during the election was just a tactic to get the votes in. It was a case of overpromising without delivering.

President BS Aquino knew that there was great risk of another Ondoy-like flooding and that it could happen anytime especially during the rainy season. Alas, he did not mount a big enough effort to prevent it from happening again. He even cancelled GMA’s PhP1.9 billion worth of various flood control projects as well as the P18.7 billion Laguna de Bay dredging project signed during her term — allegedly out of spite. He recently claimed that the project was a “joke” and that it would not have made any difference in easing the perennial flooding of the capital. How he knows that it wouldn’t have made a difference is a real mystery and it goes to show that he seems to be treating most things as a joke. This could explain the permanent sneer and sarcastic tone people observe coming from the President.

Two years after having won the election, much of the country still experienced flooding; flooding that in this instance has brought many industries — including the vital financial services industry — to a standstill for more than a week in the beginning of August. The President is only now scrambling to talk of flood prevention projects after the fact. From the drawing board, he promised ring-road dikes along Laguna de Bay, embankments and catch basins in the Marikina River watershed and an 8-kilometer dike and pumping station in the Camanava (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela) area.

That’s all well and good but he could have done this as soon as he moved into Malacañang. He could have put this down as his top priority considering he kept blaming GMA for Ondoy. While speaking to evacuees at the time, he vowed “to complete the three anti-flood projects before the end of his term in 2016”. It’s not like we haven’t heard him promise things before but he still had the nerve to ask the people to be patient, even complimenting himself for his projection, “It’s not in my nature to engage in flattery…I can finish this.”

As of this writing, the nameless disaster that befell Manila claimed 72 deaths so far while nearly 850,000 remain stranded or displaced. The amount of damage to public and private property including agriculture and infrastructure remain unaccounted for with sinkholes wreaking havoc on major roads and highways causing further damage to unsuspecting motorists.

Like his predecessor, President BS Aquino is not entirely to blame for the recent flooding in the Philippines. I’m sure he wishes that this calamity didn’t happen. And I’m sure he’d rather sleep in after his regular late nights of boozing with his drinking buddies as some have alleged, instead of going to flooded areas for photo ops. However, he was in charge of allocating the national budget and setting the national agenda. A lot of people are saying that for the last two years, he has been very preoccupied with exacting revenge from his perceived enemies instead of prioritizing what is important.

Instead of focusing his time, energy and all the resources at his disposal on fixing and cleaning up the major cities and priming the country’s economy, he has been focusing his time, energy and all the resources at his disposal on publicly persecuting GMA and her allies. It is a documented fact that more than six months was devoted to crucifying former Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona which, in turn, resulted in a vacant Chief Justice post that is proving to be hard to fill.

President BS Aquino’s obsession has put efforts to address major issues plaguing the nation on hold since most of the members of Congress who, even on normal days, are already considered too slow to act were likewise distracted from their day-to-day functions. Some people are baffled as to why BS Aquino was and still is so focused on his predecessor when in fact, the situation in the Philippines remains unchanged, with some claiming that it has even gotten worse since he took over.

To be fair, members of Philippine society also played a part in the preventable disaster. As discussed in my previous article, the recent typhoon to hit the Philippines (code named “Gener”) just before the onslaught of this week’s monsoon rains left Manila littered with mountains of garbage swept in by big waves onto the Baywalk area along Roxas Boulevard in Manila. No less than 48 garbage trucks had to haul the mess gathered from along the length of the iconic highway. The sight provided a grim reminder of the Filipino people’s worst traits: laziness and negligence. Most obviously do not think of the consequences of their habit of throwing their garbage everywhere indiscriminately.

Yes, BS Aquino could say that people can’t blame him for other people’s actions. He cannot even relocate the estimated 100,000 “informal settlers” who are the Number One culprits when it comes to indiscriminate dumping of garbage onto Manila’s rivers and creeks. But it is worth mentioning that his government has actually allowed this situation to get out of hand by patronizing the Filipino people’s apathy and indifference. Saying things like “Ang sarap maging Pilipino ngayon” can only make some of us feel complacent or think that we are right on track for success when in fact, there is so much to be done.

The thing that annoys most of the President’s critics is his triumphalist stance. He thinks his government is doing great and he will not tolerate any views to the contrary from other people. In his recently-concluded State of the Nation Address (SONA), he emphasized that things have improved under his watch. The recent disaster has proven his claim to be false. He cannot even inspire people to change much less improve their situation. Most of the time people just see him vilifying or admonishing his political enemies and his critics — something that is very unproductive.

No, President BS Aquino does not inspire unity and camaraderie. On the contrary, he causes division in Philippine society with his “If you’re not with me, you’re against me” mentality. His continued use of yellow paraphernalia also leaves a bad taste in other people’s mouths. People question why he needs to wear a yellow shirt and a yellow pin when he is out and about. It is too divisive. He seems to forget that he did not win the votes by a landslide. One can be forgiven for thinking that he’s only partial to people who wear the same color or if you want to belong, you need to pledge your allegiance to his party. But shouldn’t he rather be encouraging people to pledge allegiance to the country? That’s really something. No wonder a lot of people blame him for the country’s misery.

Granting that BS Aquino should not be blamed for cancelling the flood control projects of GMA he must still be blamed for not implementing his own projects in time to mitigate the recent floods, that is if he has any bright ideas on how to do it. He is also to blame for not extending assistance promptly through those so-called disaster preparedness agencies who are really inutile white elephants.

francisco

you hit the nail on the head!

j
Guest

agree! if he cancelled it, he should have replaced it. We already experienced Ondoy and this shows that these flood control plans are crucial and not just another project the he can set aside. Now he’s scrambling to get one in place because he was too busy doing something else. I just hope that on 2016, we really would have something in place. We may have a “tuwid na daan” by then but I’m afraid it will be underwater.

Naalala ko tuloy, during one of the final interviews of Former President Arroyo when the reporter asked her what are the things that she will miss during her term and she answered quickly: “The destructive politcs of the critics who really never offered any alternatives on policies and programs just destructive political noise.”
It goes with the saying, “What goes around, comes around.” Only time will tell.

The state of the nation’s continuing flood control is pathetic. It has not been moving forward as it should. Mr. BS Aquino will not be able to deliver a long term solution during his watch. As long as our traditional politicians use the informal settlers for their political expediency and opportunism nothing will be done to solve the dumping of garbage into our waterways and drainage. Political will sucks when seen in the sordid light of intense reality. What the administration can do in the meantime is to establish a system of rapid and immediate emergency relief, assistance and evacuation.… Read more »

Not only Pnoy is to be blamed about all the political and economic miseries of the Philippines but majority of its citizens and its spontaneously rotting moral culture. Watching what was happening during the most recent flooding in so many places in the NCR and other affected provinces it can be seen that government officials are so scared to spend more of the allocated annual government budget even during times of calamities. For example the underpass in front of the Manila Hall was filled with flood water. And the city government just refuse to take action to even augment the… Read more »

Daido Katsumi

Lies. Good job on staying away from the topic, resorting to red herrings.

For further understanding: The reason WHY there is rampant corruption is because of how the people VIEW the government as a spectator sport, put people like PGMA, other affluent familial last names and former showbiz people to politics, then when sh*t breaks out, they react as if they weren’t aware of the repercussions.

Well, the rest of your fellow sycophants will always enjoy it because like I said, the government was treated as a spectator sport. And I pity you that you have been brainwashed by the media on believing that Corona is ‘corrupt’ yet it was nothing but public humiliation; the bottom line is that Noynoy and his minions wanted to get rid of him. It’s more like personal vendetta.

Now you’re glad that there will be a new CJ because it will gave way for more witchhunts and persecution of political enemies.

Maybe he could not solve it overnight but the genius is getting karma for blaming everything and everybody on everything. Now he has the captain’s chair and its still everybody’s fault. Not sure when the yellow zombies will ever demand accountability from the yellow leader the same way he demands it from everybody else. I will say this forever but Noynoy pre president (2010) accomplished NOTHING with his life. Not a damn thing. Not sure why he earns yours or anybody else’s idolatry. I really have no idea.

“Dikes will be built in the common flooded municipalities to hold water…”

The solution is not as simple as your simplistic mind can conceive. Remember that you cannot build dikes overnight especially during the rainy season.This has to be identified, planned and executed with resolute political will.

As to your continuing accusations of corruption against the former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, this is not the issue of the article here or the subject of discussion. Prove your allegations through evidence by writing an article here or just shut up!
