Ngiting tagumpay! Alfred Vargas raises fist after defending DILG’s budget
Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas was smiling from ear to ear following his successful defense of the Department of Interior and Local Government’s budget during plenary debates at the House of Representatives Friday.
For hours, Vargas stood at the rostrum answering lawmakers’ questions about the DILG and its attached agencies, including the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, and Bureau of Fire Protection.
In a Facebook post, Vargas said it was an honor for him to be the DILG’s budget sponsor.
“Ito po ay para sa epektibo nating pamumuno tungo sa mapayapa, ligtas at progresibong komunidad. Salamat sa mga kasamahan natin sa Kongreso para sa pagkakataong ito,” he said.
After the plenary debates, Vargas snapped a photo with DILG Secretary Eduardo Año and other officials.
