GENERAL TRIAS CITY, Cavite (The Adobo Chronicles, Cavite Bureau) – The city government of General Trias in Cavite province has levied a P10 Million fine on the Leni Robredo campaign to pay for the cleanup of last week’s rally.
The crowd which the campaign claims to have reached 47,000 left piles and piles of trash and pink confetti, not to mention blown-up pink balloons which many say were meant to project the appearance of a large attendance at the rally.
General Trias city hall officials decried the irresponsibility of the campaign and attendees in leaving litter and toxic materials after the rally ended.
The P10 Million includes environmental charges resulting from blown-up pieces of pink balloons used at the political event.
The officials say what transpired is in direct contrast to Robredo’s campaign promise to protect the environment and reduce pollution in urban cities and other areas in the country.
