Rehabilitating Lacson

FORMER SENATOR Panfilo Lacson says he’s having a hard time doing his job as the Aquino administration’s “rehabilitation czar,” complaining only a week ago that two members of the Aquino Cabinet have been deliberately thwarting his efforts to rehabilitate the areas in the Visayas razed by super typhoon Yolanda.

Lacson claimed that the two Cabinet secretaries, whom he refused to name, have been ignoring his calls, text messages, and even official correspondence. In an indirect indictment of the administration that appointed him, the head of the Office of the Presidential Adviser for Rehabilitation and Recovery (OPARR) said things either move slowly or not at all. He also claimed he has not received any response from the two officials.
