Ralph Recto describes unscrupulous vendors as ‘halang ang bituka’

Nov 6, 2018 @ 17:22

Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto wants all local government units to establish Timbangan ng Bayan Centers in all public and private markets in the country.

The Batangas politiko said many unscrupulous vendors are scamming Filipinos using fraudulent weighing scales.

Recto said this illegal practice is more common especially when there is an upcoming occasion.

“Pangkaraniwan na sa mga palengke, tiangge at bangketa ang masingitan ng ilang mga halang ang bitukang negosyante at tindero na walang nasa isip kundi makaisa sa mga ino­senteng mamimili. Gamit ang ‘kargadong’ timbangan, napapalakas nila ang timbang ng kanilang binebenta na halos times two sa orihinal na bigat,” he said.

“Talamak ang ganitong kalakaran lalo na kung may parating na okasyon at nakahandang gumastos ang mamimili,” Recto said.
