Manila, Philippines - Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has been cleaning up Manila since he started to assume office. And now he ordered to scrub clean of Lagusnilad Underpass and removed all the stalls along the underpass which hinder the walkway of the pedestrians.

Mayor Isko inspected the area together with the Manila Public Information and Brig. Gen. Vicente Danao, the Manila Police District Chief on Monday.

City hall personnel had already started dismantling the stalls along the underpass even before Mayor Isko arrived.  According to the report, most of the vendors of the Lagusnilad Underpass do not have a permit and do not pay taxes to the city hall. 

“Ipalinis lahat ah. Paliguan niyo,” as Moreno told the personnel of the clearing operations while inspecting the entire underpass.

The newly elected Mayor said that the city government will now control the street vendors to avoid traffic jams and to maintain cleanliness around the city.

He said private organizers demand as high as P350 per day from vendors which is higher than the P20 that should be given to the city government.

The cleanup of the Lagusnilad underpass is the latest in the series of clearing operations of Manila as implemented by Mayor Isko.
