'Ikaw kaya ang mag PNP Chief kung kaya mo'- Dela Rosa Challenges De Lima During Senate Hearing!
During a Senate hearing session, Senator Leila De Lima questioned PNP Chief Ronald Dela Rosa for concealing President Rodrigo Duterte’s name when he was asked who ordered the reinstatement of CIDG Region 8 Chief Marvin Marcos.
De Lima was referring to the incident when Dela Rosa said that a higher official called for Marcos’ reinstatement. Later on, the PNP Chief changed his statement and claimed that a “kumpare” from Malacanang asked him to.
Dela Rosa said that he will eventually reveal the president’s name soon. After his statement, he challenged De Lima to exchange positions with him.
“Kung maipit, sasabihin ko. Magpalit tayo ng position your honor, ikaw maging chief PNP kung kaya mo” Dela Rosa told De Lima.
The Senator was enraged by the statement as Sen. Panfilo Lacson tried to calm her down.
“Do not argue with me! I’ve had enough of you. Kayong lahat na mga nagsisinungaling!” De Lima said furiously.
The questioning continued and Dela Rosa then reasoned that he was just playing with the media which is why he chose not to reveal president’s name right away.
“I was talking to the media alam ko na pini-play ako ng media na ganun so nakisakay rin ako sa kanila your honor…eh alam mo naman ang media sinusundot ka nyan para mag salita” Dela Rosa added.
