PNP chief Bato to Leni: 'Huwag niyo naman gamitin yung term 'tokhang for ransom' dahil nasasaktan kami'
On Monday, PNP chief Director General Ronald Dela Rosa admitted being hurt by Robredo's remarks and has encouraged her to instead use the term "kidnap for ransom" to prevent causing damage to Oplan Tokhang.
"Pakisabi kay [vice] president huwag naman niya gamitin yung term 'tokhang for ransom' dahil nasasaktan kami. Gamitin niyo kidnap for ransom. Huwag i-assosiate yung Tokhang dahil baka may intention na babagsak yung aming war on drugs," Dela Rosa told a news conference.
