DAGUPAN CITY-Abono Partylist Chair Rosendo So debunked rumors that he has already abandoned Abono Partylist and shifted support to Samahang Industriya ng Agrikultura (Sinag ).

He said Sinag was not a partylist but an umbrella organization of 33 agricultural stakeholders in the country.

” That is not true. I am still the national chair of the Abono Partylist, which is still running in the 2016 elections. Abono Partylist will remain as an advocate of the welfare of farmers and fishermen and other stakeholders in the agricultural industry not only in Pangasinan but in the whole country,” So said during a phone interview on the program “Ang Bagong Bayan Po(e) ” aired over DZRD Sonshine Radio last September 21.

So is also the national chair of Sinag.

He said Sinag’s forerunner organization was the Swine Development Council (SDC) that spearheaded the fight against the smuggling of meat products particularly the misdeclaration of good meat as offal, which deprived government of revenues.

“When SDC saw that the smuggling activities was rampant in the country and these include rice, garlic, onions, carrots and other agri-products, we organized the Sinag which included all stake holders in agriculture. Abono Partylist is one of the 33 agri-organizations that are under the umbrella of Sinag,” he said.

Stakeholders under Sinag are those engaged in egg industry, hog and swine industry, poultry industry, fishing industry, farmers organizations and AGAP Partylist.

So also said Sinag is supporting the presidential bid of Senator Grace Poe and her vice presidential team mate Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero in the 2016 elections.

“Of the presidential contenders, it is only Sen. Poe who articulated good programs to help the agricultural sector particularly in curbing smuggling of agricultural products and also to provide the needed support facilities like irrigation and farm to market roads,” he said.
