No balls? Unlike ‘idol’ Ping, Bato won’t criticize Duterte publicly if he wins as senator
Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa may look up to Senator Panfilo Lacson, but he admits he doesn’t have the balls to do everything that the former Philippine National Police chief does in the Senate.
In an interview over ANC’s “Headstart” Thursday (October 11), Dela Rosa said he cannot not publicly criticize President Rodrigo Duterte should he win as senator.
Dela Rosa made the statement after broadcaster Karen Davila pointed out that Lacson has not been afraid to criticize Duterte publicly despite being part of the Senate majority bloc.
“Hindi ko siguro kaya pero kaya ko siyang sabihan in private pag something is sa tingin kong hindi maganda, hindi tama,” Dela Rosa said.
“Hindi ko puwedeng i-criticize siya in public. No, I can’t do that,’” the BuCor chief added.
Dela Rosa will run for senator under Duterte’s political party, PDP-Laban.
