Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has met with residents who stand to be affected by the construction of the North Luzon Expressway Segment 8.2, and assured them that their rights would be the priority.

Belmonte told the families that their homes would not be demolished unless there is a proper relocation site for them.

The relocation site must have basic and social services, and they must have livelihood assistance as well, she said.

They should also be entitled to replacement costs and should be involved in the selection of the relocation sites, she said.

“Wag po kayong magalala, narito ang inyong lokal na pamahalaan upang kayo’y tulungan, at kailanma’y hinding-hindi kayo pababayaan. Anumang mangyari, ipaglalaban ni Mayor Joy ang karapatang pantao ng bawat QCitizen,” she said.
