‘Wag umastang baby damulag! Hontiveros tells Bato to grow up
By Shane Juan
Senator Risa Hontiveros advised her neophyte colleague, Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, to grow up after he shared his hurt over the conduct of hearings at the Senate when he was the Philippine National Police chief.
Hontiveros on Wednesday (July 10) shrugged off Dela Rosa’s remark that he still felt bad about supposedly being disrespected by some senators when the Senate conducted a hearing on the drug war.
“May nakarinig at nakabasa sa kanya at nagsabing parang ikaw yata ang pinatutungkulan niyan pero hindi ako nabo-bother sa ganyan, I learned sa mga seniors ko sa 17th Congress kung paano mag-conduct ng hearings at kung ano ang tamang kondukta. I look forward na ganun din ang ipakita niya,” she said.
“Nakalimutan ko na nga yun pero sa tuwing matatanong sa akin ay naaalala ko pero ang sa akin, sino ba ang nag-drama?’” Hontiveros added.
The senator defended the conduct of the hearing on the drug war, saying it was handled professionally.
