Mensahe ni Ping: Vendetta Ba? Para sa Lahat ng Ganid Yan!

Para sa lahat ng mga mambabatas na ganid at walang kabusugan sa paghamig ng pork barrel sa ginalaw pa na niratipikahan nang 2019 national budget ang vendetta ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Ito ang nilinaw ng senador bilang tugon sa tila sirang plaka na akusasyon ng mga kongresistang kaalyado ni House Speaker at nakulong sa katiwalian na dating Pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Si Lacson ay ilang beses na inakusahan ng mga talking heads ni Arroyo na umano’y vendetta o paghihiganti sa lider ng Kamara ang tunay na mithiin ng mambabatas sa pagkuwestiyon sa ginalaw na niratipikahang 2019 national budget.

“Sa mga konggresista na paulit-ulit sa pagsasabi na ‘vendetta’ ang aking motibo sa pag atake sa pork barrel nila sa 2019 pambansang badyet – tama po kayo, sukdulang galit na vendetta ko nga β€˜yan sa mga katulad ninyong ganid at walang kabusugan sa pera ng mamamayang Pilipino,” tuwirang pahayag ni Lacson sa kanyang Twitter account.

Lacson: My ‘Vendetta’ is Against the Insatiably Greedy Politicians

My “vendetta” is against the insatiably greedy politicians, especially those who lust after pork barrel funds.

This was Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson’s reply to some House of Representatives members who continue to accuse him of “vendetta” in denouncing pork in the 2019 budget.

“Sa mga konggresista na paulit ulit sa pagsasabi na ‘vendetta’ ang aking motibo sa pag atake sa pork barrel nila sa 2019 pambansang badyet – tama po kayo, sukdulang galit na vendetta ko nga β€˜yan sa mga katulad ninyong ganid at walang kabusugan sa pera ng mamamayang Pilipino (To the congressmen who continue to claim vendetta is my motive in attacking the pork in the 2019 budget, you are right. But my vendetta is against the insatiably greedy politicians),” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.
