Bato hits back at DJ Chacha over resignation call: Binoto niya natalo!
Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa scoffed Wednesday (February 19) at a radio DJ’s call for his resignation, saying he owes his seat to the 19 million Filipinos who voted for him.
Dela Rosa shrugged off the resignation call made by radio host Czarina Marie Balba, better known as DJ Chacha, on Twitter after he repeatedly said he will “sink and swim” with President Rodrigo Duterte over the issue of ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal.
DJ Chacha tweeted that Dela Rosa should resign as a senator and apply as Duterte’s bodyguard since his loyalty was with the President than the country.
In response to the DJ’s remark, Dela Rosa said: “Pabayaan mo sila. ‘Yung pananagutan ko ‘yung bumoto sa akin… I was voted upon by 19 million Filipinos.”
Referring to DJ Chacha, the senator added: “‘Yang tumatawag sa aking resignation, ang binoto niya ‘yung mga natalo sa kabila.”
Dela Rosa said it was logical for him to be loyal to Duterte since the President’s loyalty was with the Filipino people.
“Saan ako mag-loyal? Sa oligarch? Doon ako mag-loyal sa gobyerno at sa sambayanang Pilipino,” he said.
