On July 29, in a conference with reporters, Manila Bulletin quoted the mayor who expressed strong statements with regards to the organizers of the program.
"They have to rethink whatever they’re doing. The one that we saw at Rizal (stadium) is unacceptable. That is negligence on the part of whoever organized it."
The Manila Mayor took the initiative and ordered members of the city government to do cleanup and flushing operations.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the cleanup operations of Mayor Isko was able to haul around 30 tons of garbage.
