Senator Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr. expressed sadness over the recent remarks of Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno whom he considered as a ‘friend’ and colleague in showbiz.

Revilla, in a Facebook live video, addressed Moreno for criticizing the 24 senators of the republic, calling the statement of the Manila City Mayor as unfair.

“Si Yorme, tinira kaming mga senador, sana naman wag ganon, masakit dahil alam naman natin na you’re a very good friend of mine, alam mo naman na lahat kami nagta-trabaho, di kami nag papabaya,” Revilla said.

The Senator from Cavite said that they couldn’t afford to help the whole country that’s why the Manila Mayor should understand that they could only help the people at their bailiwicks.

He also revealed that all the Senators were disappointed over Moreno’s remarks.

Revilla said that they did their mandate despite the possible risk of getting infected by COVID-19 just to pass the Bayanihan To Heal As One Act.

“Kaya yung banat samin ni Yorme, wag ganon, tulungan tayo hindi ito ang panahon ng pag batikos, wag mo kaming personalin, minsan nakakasama ng loob,” Revilla said.

“Nag usap usap nga kami dun sa aming Viber group, saktan kaming lahat dahil unfair yun sa amin, dahil nung pumasok pa kami kahit na alam nating delikado ilan na nga yung nagkasakit, pero gayon paman tuloy parin ang trabaho namin,”  he added.

Revilla is one of 11 the Senators who attended the special session on March 28.

He then urged the people to help the country instead of focusing on criticizing the public officials.

“Sama sama po tayo, alam ko po ang nararamdaman nang bawat isa sa inyo, alam ko po kung anong nararamdaman ng mga LGUs, ng mga ating mga Mayors, talagang yung mga alkalde talagang halos wala po silang pahinga, pero sila ang tumatangap ng lahat ng dagok,” he said.

LGUs and public officials were also lack of funds according to Revilla, that’s why the public should not assume that they’re corrupting the budget of the people.

“Akala nila ninanakaw nila yung pera, pero totoo sa tingin ko kulang na kulang yan dahil hindi sapat ang pondo natin, kaya kailangan talaga ang ayuda ng National Government nakahanda po kaming mga Senador at Kongresista para tumugon sa pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan,” Revilla remarked.

A few days ago, Mayor Isko Moreno criticized the Senators and urged them to help the people.

Mga senador, 24 lang kayo, mga sekretaryo, mga pulitikong katulad ko, ngayon natin ipakita, ipakita ninyo ang pagmamahal ninyo sa Pilipino. Kaming mga tiga-Maynila, Pilipino rin. Ngayon niyo ipakita, maraming nagdadarahop.” Moreno said.

“Wala ba kayong mga puso? Maswerte kayo, pinagpala kayo. Maswerte tayo nakaluwag tayo sa buhay. Paano yung mga naghihikahos dahil sa krisis na ito at yung mga naghihikahos sa kasalukuyan. Hindi tayo magkakaunawaan sa salitaan, hindi tayo magkakaunawaan sa mga political ideologies.”  he added.

Moreno’s statement catches the attention of the public and several senators including Senate President Vicente Sotto III.
