DILG starts drive to promote ‘culture of discipline’ in Manila
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) launched on Wednesday its “Disiplina Muna” campaign — which aims to instill a “culture of discipline” among Filipinos — at the Manila City Hall.
Specifically, the campaign, which will be implemented first in Manila, aims to sustain the policies of the DILG — including road clearing operations, disaster preparedness and resilience procedures, smoking ban, ease of doing business, liquor ban, tourist spots cleanup and implementation of Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council.
“This is DILG’s program to sustain the road-clearing operation and we are putting everything in order because some illegal vendors and illegally parked vehicles are returning,” Interior Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya, DILG spokesman, told reporters after the launching of the campaign at the Manila City Hall.
Malaya appealed for public support for the campaign, saying: “If there is no support from our people then our programs will not be successful. So this is challenge for our countrymen to make this possible.”
