Made of gold? P8M flagpole in Luneta criticized

Posted at 08/28/2013 6:09 PM

Netizens are criticizing government's plan to build a new flagpole at the Luneta Park with a price tag of nearly P8 million.

One asks if the flagpole is made of gold while another wonders if the new flagpole comes with a house.

The Department of Public Works and Highways said the new flagpole will be mechanized, but an engineering student is unimpressed, saying they can build the same mechanized flagpole at a cheaper price. -- @ancalerts, ANC, August 28, 2013
