Akala niya tapat! Duterte feels ‘betrayed’ by Reds- Palace

Nov 27, 2017 @ 17:35

President Rodrigo Duterte feels “betrayed” that the New People’s Army continues its offensive against government and civilians because he thought he established a good relationship with the communists, Malacañang said Monday (November 27).

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Duterte has ordered the arrest NPA members carrying out attacks and other crimes.

“Alam ninyo naman dito sa Davao, talaga namang ang Presidente has always close relations with them. Kaya he really feels betrayed. Akala niya, dahil malapit na malapit ang relasyon niya sa kaliwa, eh talaga namang makikipag-usap nang tapat,” he said in a press briefing in Davao City.

Roque said the communists cannot accuse Duterte of failing to keep his end of the bargain because he even appointed leftist leaders to ranking government positions.

“Ang sinasabi lang nila, tapusin na natin iyan. Magkaibigan naman sila ni Joma Sison, propresor niya noong siya ay estudyante sa Lyceum. Walang dapat pag-awayan! Nakikipag-usap nang tapat, ambush nang ambush ng sundalo,” he said.

Despite Duterte’s signing of a proclamation ending the peace talks with the NPA’s ideological arm, the Communist Party of the Philippines- National Democratic Front, Roque asked the communists to show sincerity and stop the attacks.

“Ang panawagan po, magkaroon ng sinseridad dahil kung wala pong kapayapaan, talagang walang matagalang pag-unlad na mangyayari lalung-lalo na iyong pag-unlad na ang makikinabang ay iyong pinakamahihirap doon sa mga lugar na aktibo ang NPA,” he said.
