Senator Ronald Dela Rosa said that Vice President Leni Robredo should take her new government position seriously as she’s joining a “war” of the current administration against lawbreakers.
According to Dela Rosa, Robredo would face many vicious lawbreakers that’s why she needs to learn how to fight.
“She has to fight, war is not a bed of roses. Hindi man ito pwedeng pa-cute cute lang… hindi pwedeng pa-boka boka lang, aksyon ito,” Dela Rosa said.
Dela Rosa insisted that Robredo should also consider the safety of the policemen and they should be allowed to fight when the lawbreakers resist.
However, Dela Rosa believes that Robredo might help the current administration in enforcing the law as more people doing it is better.
He then gave an advice to Robredo not to look at the current problem of the administration as political, but social.
“You look at the problem, not as a political problem. ‘Wag mo siyang tignan na politika itong problema na ito, tignan mo talaga ito as a social problem,” he said.
Yesterday, Robredo formally accepted her appointment as the co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs.
Despite being appointed, Robredo said that she would remain firm on her stance against the style of the current administration on enforcing the law.
“Tutol ako sa pagdamay ng mga inosente. Alam niya ang aking mga puna. Alam niya ang mga balak kong ayusin,” said Robredo.
She also has a message to her critics.
“Hindi laro-laro ang usapang ito. Seryosong usapan ‘pag buhay ang nakataya. Tinatanong nila kung handa ba ako para sa trabahong ito. Ang tanong ko, handa na ba kayo para sa akin?” she said.
