Aquino calls critics ‘KSP
President Benigno Aquino III on Monday lashed back at critics calling them “KSP” (kulang sa pansin), a colloquial term for people perceived to be lacking of attention.
In his speech during the prayer gathering in Malacañang, Aquino said while his government has been working hard to address the crisis facing the country today, there were still people who would only want to sow fear and confusion among the public.
“Hindi rin po maiiwasan na meron pa ring ilan na pinipilit maghasik ng duda at negatibismo. Sila ang tawagin na lang po nating “KSP” baka kulang sa pansin,” he said.
“Baka kulang sa pag-iisip ng maayos na naghahanap lamang ng mali ngunit wala namang mailalatag na resonable at alternatibong solusyon. Meron ding mga kulang sa pagkalinga sa kapwa dahil nais lamang na magkaroon ng kaguluhan kung saan sila makikinabang. Siyempre ang mga kulang sa pananampalataya ang mga ayaw kilalanin nariyan ang Panginoong handang umalalay at gumabay sa atin upang malagpasan ang bawat suliranin,” he added.
Aquino has been criticized for the way he addressed the Mamasapano incident that led to the death of at least 60 people in Maguindanao.
Amid crisis triggered by the botched anti-terror operation, Aquino hosted a prayer gathering in Malacañang led by Jesus is Lord Church leader Brother Eddie Villanueva.
Aquino dismissed reports that he paid the Coalition of Christian Movements to organize the event. He said the door of Malacañang is open to people who would want to talk and give solutions to country’s problems.
Aquino is currently addressing questions from some attendees of the event.
