Leni dared to solve PH drug problem

October 29, 2019

SPEAKER Alan Peter Cayetano on Tuesday dared Vice President Leni  Robredo to present a clear program to address the country’s drug  problem.

Cayetano also expressed support to President Rodrigo Duterte’s  challenge for Robredo to lead the campaign against illegal drugs for  six months.

“Susuportahan ko ‘yung challenge ng ating Pangulo at susuportahan ko  ang Vice President if she takes the reigns for six months. But ipakita  muna niya at ipaliwanag anong programa niya,” Cayetano told reporters in an  ambush interview at Mercado del Lago floating restaurant in Taguig  City before visiting the Taguig City Jail. “Kasi madaling magsabi eh, these flowery words like ‘health-based approach.’ What’s that health-based approach?”

“Kung may baril ‘yung kaharap mo na nagbebenta ng droga at nandun sa school at hinuli ng pulis ano’ng gagawin ng pulis? Sabihin, ‘pare mag-vitamins ka muna’?” Cayetano said.

“Kung panay protesta, panay restating of the problem, panay saying iba  ang approach mo, wala kang alternative, it’s not helpful sa discussion,” said Cayetano. “So sa ating Bise Pangulo: make your proposal very clear. Define, what is your health-based approach? And how will it apply to elementary, high schools, how will it apply sa  mga nanlalaban? Sa judges, mayors, governors who are into drugs?”
