Duterte admin ends tenancy of 78-year old farmer in Laguna


In the recent ceremony conducted by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), a total of 79 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARB) were able to receive Land Titles in their respective community equivalent to 101.5825 hectares of farmable agricultural lands in Calamba, among others, in Laguna.
One of the fortunate ARB is 78-year-old farmer, Paciano Mitra of Barangay Limao, Calauan, Laguna, who, after several years of hard labor, finally received his Transfer Certificate Title (TCTs) as bestowed by DAR in a ceremony held at its Provincial Office in Sta. Cruz Laguna.
Mitra, along with his wife, Nenita, expressed their gratitude towards DAR under the leadership of Secretary John R. Castriciones and the Duterte administration for making the release of their land titles possible in this very rare opportunity.

In an interview after the distribution, Mitra said in local dialect: “I’ve been farming for 50 years yet I do not own the land.”

DAR Field of Operations (FOO) Usec. Karlo S. Bello successfully facilitated the ceremony and distribution along with Director Leomides R. Villareal of the Public Assistance and Media Relations Service (PAMRS), DAR Region IV-A Director Luis B. Bueno, Jr., DAR Region IV-A Assistant Director Priscilla E. Ong, and Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer II Elizabeth Z. Villapando.

Bello commended the Provincial Office of Laguna accompanied by his message to the ARBs, saying as quoted, “We give importance to every land title distribution activity that we undertake. This is very important to the lives of the farmers.”

Among those who were also granted with Land Titles are widows Arsenia B. Ojinal, 78 years old, and her daughter Rosa Ojinal Yongco, 49 years old with 5 children and residents of Barangay Imok, Calauan, Laguna. Both wept in the ceremony as they dedicate the Land Titles to their late, hardworking husbands. Rosa promised to protect and develop the land for her future generation.        

Another 42-year-old ARB from Barangay Curalan, Sta. Maria, Laguna, named Leondy E. Jarque, a father of 3, jumped for joy as he received his Certificate of Land Ownership award (CLOA), thanking DAR for fast processing and release of his land title.
