Earlier this week, Vice President Leni Robredo urged Senator Alan Peter Cayetano to stand and speak up against President Rody Duterte for burying former President Ferdinand Marcos in Libingan ng mga Bayani.
“I would have hoped that the outrage he showed during the campaign would still be the same until now. We understand that he’s fully supportive of the President, but that’s not enough reason for him to keep quiet,He should be more vocal about it now that they’re doing everything to get back to power” Robredo said.
Cayetano went to his facebook account to post his response which according to the netizens, Cayetano has burned Leni. Read the full statement below:
Response To Ma’am Leni:
Thank you for the challenge. Let me assure you I am doing what I can, in the manner that I believe I can be most effective.
Let me return the favor and also challenge you with the following:
Ask how and why the drug problem got so bad and out of control.
Call out and demand that your LP allies involved in illegal drugs resign and be jailed.
Ask for justice for the SAF 44. Ask for justice for tanim bala victims. Ask for an investigation and justice on MRT anomalies. Expose other LP personalities’ involvement in graft and corruption. Ask for an investigation why despite expensive fees in the airport in the past admin, no CCTVs were purchased and installed. Ask the PCIJ, Rappler and Inquirer to look into your donors and undeclared expenses during your campaign. Ask ABS-CBN, and other media outlets that supported you to be fair and objective.
You were quiet about all of the above, but I respected your role and decision.
There’s much more, but in a nutshell I challenge you to stop campaigning and thinking of The Presidency and help attract investments, build infrastructure, create jobs and redistribute wealth in our country.
