Bistoyong told DAR officials to do their job and deliver
As President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to deliver land tenure service (LTS), among other things, DAR OIC Secretary Rosalina Bistoyong firmly ordered her top officials from the central, regional and provincial levels of the agency to perform their respective assignments.
She also said that DAR officials will be held accountable either for the accomplishments and failures in DAR’s performances on LTS, agrarian legal service (LTS), technical advisory support services (TASS), foreign-assisted and special projects office (FASPO) and Finance and Administrative Service.
“I receive a very tall order from our President that DAR should deliver in land tenure service. LTS is the very spirit of agrarian reform and I would expect our Regional Directors to be hands-on in the implementation of the program,” Bistoyong told DAR officials.
“Do your assignments! Cases should be solved at the provincial and regional levels. It is quite expensive for the farmers to go in Manila, hold rallies and camp-out at the DAR central office to air their concerns when it can already be solved at the field levels,” she added.
DAR officials from various regions and provinces in the country are now undergoing their CY 2017 Third Quarter National Cumulative Assessment Session at the Icon Hotel here that commenced last October 24 and will end today.
