Mt Province solon asks folks to unite as they mark golden year
by Ofelia C. Empian

Mountain Province Rep. Maximo Dalog Sr. has renewed his call for his constituents to continue to be united towards the development of the landlocked province.

“We should continue our solidarity. There is no reason to hate each other,” Dalog said in his message during the 50th founding anniversary of the province with the theme “Mountain Province at 50: Reminiscing and fostering our cultural integrity.”

Recently, the province’s peace and order was rocked due to the killing of one of its former chief of police in Bontoc in the evening of April 2.

Two of the three suspects in the murder of C/Insp. Benjamin Falangon Challoy, who were identified as members of the military, are now under the custody of the police.

Despite this, Dalog asked the community to continue the bond of peace that is still more prevalent in the locality. 

The congressman said the word “lang-ay” means sharing.

“We share what we have to our friends and neighbors. We don’t get to be hungry in Mountain Province that’s why we should continue being diligent,” he said. 

Lang-ay Festival Organization Chair Paulino Tumapang, said the celebration of the Lang-ay Festival has been moved from the Eyeb Grounds to the provincial plaza to give respect to the family of the late Challoy.

The residence of Challoy is near the Eyeb Grounds, the usual meeting place of the community during Lang-ay celebration.

Acting Gov. Bonifacio Lacwasan said the playing of gongs is synonymous with community celebration.

“Lang-ay promotes our culture here in the Mountain Province and the playing of gongs is a very huge deal for us,” said Lacwasan.

It is also for this reason that they have decided, together with the mayors of Natonin and Paracelis, for the latter’s contingent not to join this year’s Lang-ay Festivities.

“This is for security reasons,” said Lacwasan.

The suspects are alleged to have come from Natonin and Paracelis.

“Bontoc is a peaceful place what happened is an isolated incidence,” he assured.
