Pinuri ng Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) ang Marikina City matapos nitong isabatas ang dalawang ordinansa bilang suporta sa kautusan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na linisin at paluwagin ang mga kalsada, at hinihikayat ang mga pamahalaang lokal na magpasa din ng mga katulad na batas.
Ipinahayag ni DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año na ang pagpasa ng Marikina City ng ordinansa na nagbibigay pahintulot sa mga motorista na gamitin ang mga kalsada ng mga subdivision at ordinansa na nag-uutos na “No Garage, No Permit” ay lubhang kinakailangan upang mabigyang-lunas ang matagal ng suliranin sa trapiko ng Metro Manila.
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) commends Marikina City for passing two ordinances supporting President Rodrigo Duterte's directive to clear the roads of obstruction and encourages other local government units (LGUs) to also enact similar ordinances.
DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año says that Marikina City's passage of an ordinance that allows motorists to use subdivision roads and an ordinance imposing a “No Garage, No Permit” Policy are urgently needed to address the perennial problem of traffic in Metro Manila.

Sa paggigiit na ang mga kolehiyo at pamantasan ay off-limits sa mga pulis, hinahadlangan ng mga militant student organization ang karapatan ng bawat mag-aaral na marinig ang magkabilang panig ng isyu, ayon sa Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

By claiming that colleges and universities as off-limits to the police, militant student organizations are, in fact, curtailing the right of every student to hear both sides of the issue, according to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
“The militant student organizations are, in fact, saying that only their ideology or point of view is welcome here and any attempt to weaken their hold on the discourse or introduce other points of view is “militarization,” said DILG Undersecretary and Spokesperson Jonathan Malaya.
The DILG spokesperson said that the alleged militarization and martial law in the UP system are figments of their imagination gone overdrive....
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) said that militant student organizations in UP are missing the point when they claim that the government is planning the “militarization” of the university when in fact all they wish to address is the issue of Communist recruitment in schools.

“We have no problem with student activism. In fact, there are many in government today who are former student activists and therefore understand the need to have...
