Former Manila Mayor and Environment Secretary Lito Atienza is accusing incumbent Mayor Alfredo Lim of backing the construction of a reclamation area in Manila Bay that will block the view of sunset at the Manila Bay.

Atienza said the the 425-hectare project that will stretch from Manila Yacht Club to the U.S. Embassy will be developed by the Manila Gold Coast Development. Corp.

Lim, for his part, denied that he approved any project that will block the sunset’s view.

He said he only planned to built a fisherman’s wharf similar to the one in San Francisco Bay Area. – Umagang Kay Ganda, July 5 2012
