The head of the Housing and Urban Development committee at the House of Representatives on Monday said the recent takeover of urban poor group Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (KADAMAY) of idle housing units in Bulacan showed gaps in the government’s approach toward the country’s housing problem.

Negros Occidental Rep. Alfredo Benitez said they would like to find out if the solution “being provided by the government is effective,” particularly in addressing the issues of affordability and accessibility of the houses it builds for sectors that are supposed to benefit from these.
