Duterte to LP: After hounding Arroyo, it’s your turn to answer 6 years of corruption under Aquino

Jun 12, 2017 @ 13:13

President Rodrigo Duterte has slammed the Liberal Party and its allies for being too quick to criticize him for just to make themselves look good and forgetting what they did when they were in power.

In an interview after visiting wounded soldiers at Camp Evangelista Station Hospital in Cagayan de Oro, Duterte said the LP members in the House and Senate – who have criticized him on a number of issues from his brutal drug war to the hero’s burial for President Ferdinand Marcos to the declaration of martial law in Mindanao – should heed the lesson of history that those who find fault with others end up repeating the same transgressions.

He cited the case of his ally, former President and incumbent Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who was the prime target in the past administration’s anti-corruption mantra “tuwid na daan.”

Arroyo was detained at the Veterans Memorial Hospital for almost the entire six-year term of then President Benigno Aquino III who charged her with plunder. Arroyo walked out of her hospital detention last July after she was acquitted by the Supreme Court.

“Madali lang kasi magdaldal, magpapogi. It’s very easy to, you know, criticize. But history has shown na ‘yung nagki-criticize, ‘yung noon Liberal sinasabi ‘corrupt, corrupt’ si Arroyo. Ngayon sila, o tignan mo ‘yung six years eh ‘di puro corruption,” said Duterte whose Cabinet officials have sought a probe of government fund misuse through the pork barrel funds and Disbursement Acceleration Program during the Aquino administration.

    Normal sa mga politiko na corrupt but not PNOY and that is the truth. Now comparing the arroyo and PNOY administration, arroyo left malacanang na kokonti ang resources at baon sa utang. When PNOY left malacanang, nag iwan siya ng madaming pera sa kaban ng bayan na na inherit ni Digong. Ngayon sa duterte administration, ilang buwan pa lang corrupt na ang mga appointee niya at nagsasayang pa ng isasahod sa mga appointee na mga basura lang sa ahensya sa gobyerno. Kapag politiko ka huwag kang pikon sa ibabato sau dahil lahat kayo ay binabato pero ang maganda lang sa ibang politiko ay hindi nagpapa intriga lalot hindi totoo. Pag ikaw ay pikon at nagagalit ay cguradong guilty ka sa mga gawain mong kababuyan
