Senate President Vicente Sotto III criticized the people against the Oplan Tokhang of the Duterte administration, saying that they don’t know what they’re saying.
In his statement, Sotto who’s known to favor some of President Duterte’s policies said that there’s no such thing as failed or won in the current battle of the administration, saying that the operation should be continuing.
“War vs Drugs should be continuing and perpetual. No such thing as FAILED or WON. Ang dami kasing epal na hindi naman alam ang laban!” Sotto said.
Sotto made the tweet a day after Otso Diretso senatorial candidate Florin Hilbay told retired Gen. Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa that Oplan Tokhang which the latter’s creation is failed.
Hilbay added that the policies of the administration only resulted in the loss of many innocent lives.
However, Bato defended his creation, saying that people already see the results of the government’s policies.
“Ikompara mo sa previous na administrasyon, malaki na po ang deperensiya. Nitong panahon ni Duterte ang droga imported galing sa China. Pero nung panahon ng ibang presidente, ang droga hindi iniimport, dito mismo ginagawa sa Pilipinas,” he said.
