President Benigno Aquino III, in Laos for the 9th Asia-Europe Meeting,  took potshots at his predecessor again, saying her ’faulty calculator’ bloated costs of projects under the Arroyo administration.

 

Dellon Porcala of the Philippine Star reports Aquino told Vientiane-based Filipinos that former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo may have gotten her arithmetic wrong. "Ibang klaseng calculator po yata ang ginamit nila, at automatic at maya't maya ang pindot ng addition button," Aquino reportedly said.

 

In contrast, he said, his administration built the Araneta-Quezon Avenue underpass in Quezon City 100 days ahead of schedule and for just P430 million. "Based on my predecessor's computation, the project would cost P694 million," Aquino said.
