            BUTUAN CITY (PNA) - Alliance for Nationalist Democracy (ANAD) Party-list Rep. Jun Alcover today slammed CPP/NPA/NDF for allegedly paying lip service to peace initiatives called on by the Government of the Republic of the Philippines. 

            In a press statement released by ANAD Party-list office through their national spokesman Surigaonon Rey Salas who is tagging the name “Joey Sison” claimed that the CPP-NPA-NDF had always been paying lip service while playing zarzuela of lies unfolding before the eyes of 94 million Filipinos with the Maoist terrorist group not getting their acts together amidst the Philippine government’s sincerity and commitment towards peace.

            ANAD Congressman Alcover said he was reacting on NDF-Mindanao leader and spokesman Jorge Madlos’ statement during 42 years founding anniversary of the CPP last December  26, that the NPA will continue military offensive despite the truce and the peace negotiations.

Alcover alleged that despite yuletide truce, the NPA is recruiting members, expanding its operational and based areas, in line with its 3-year target of attaining Strategic Stalemate with the government.

“How can you exact sincerity and wholesale commitment towards peace when one hand is foisting an M-16 rifle against government, while the other is busy twitting and rummaging the GRP panel into believing what they are saying,” Alcover said. 

Rep. Alcover explained that the Madlos’ recent statement bears tacit approval by the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF Central Committee led by Jose Ma. Sison. “Yet, Sison and Jalandoni wanted the government of President Aquino to believe that their intention to revive the peace talks is pure and borne out of good intentions for the country and people”.

“It’s the same old song played like a broken record but too obvious is the fact that the Maoist terrorists has shown its strong determination to partake in government activities under a coalition government. We should be wary about this and prevent the Nepal experience to happen in this country,” said Rep. Alcover.

“ANAD is certain that President Aquino’s warning and strong reminder to the Maoist terrorists not to use the ceasefire and the peace negotiations to recruit members, replenish their resources, and consolidate their forces, is all lip service and has now become a segment of a grandiose Maoist terrorist plan to topple down our government, freedom, and democratic institutions,” Rep. Alcover said as he reiterated his warning against falling into a Maoist terrorist political death trap.

“Our problem is that government has not learned or they don’t intent to learn from the more than 20 years of Maoist terrorist foreplay against government through the many failed peace negotiations, in the past. In fact, there are still some who entertain the notion that Jose Ma. Sison and his Maoist communism deacons could be convinced to end their armed struggle. They will always lie flat on their faces and in the receiving end gnashing their teeth in disbelief,” Rep. Alcover pointed out.

“With all of government’s fanfare, e.g. one-sided and biased expression of confidence building measures, and amidst the never–ending and despicable lies after lies by the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF, we should hold President Aquino’s administration answerable for any failure government may have, in the times ahead,” Rep. Alcover concluded as he issued the warning. (PNA/Ben Serrano)
