PBGen Pagkalinawan added that the donation is a gesture of gratitude to Mayor Ganggangan for his peace and order programs in the municipality and his efforts to fight insurgency in the area, according to PIA.
Mayor Ganggangan has been calling Cordillerans especially those in the government to make a stand on the issue of insurgency.

He said that this is the time to address the insurgency problem in the region as he lamented that relatives would be caught in the fighting between leftist groups and the government forces.

"Let us not pretend as if there is no problem in the Cordillera. There is an ongoing war - the legitimate government force versus the New People's Army - and to me it's a senseless killing," Ganggangan said.
