Davao City’s 1st district Representative Paolo ‘Pulong’ Duterte writes an open letter addressed to his father President Rodrigo Duterte and also to the critics of the chief executive.
In his Instagram post, Pulong expressed his support to his father who’s currently on self-quarantine in Malacañan saying that he’s going to help the chief executive until the end.
Pulong also said that the President should let the enhanced community quarantine violators faced their own demise because of not following the safety procedures against COVID-19.
“Pa, nandito lang kami. Magtulongan lang tayo, ang diyos lang ang may Alam kung hanggang saan lang tayo. Hindi tayo si Superman. Tao lang tayo. Haharapin natin ito hanggat sa makakaya, kung ang ibang tao’y matigas ang ulo at ayaw makinig sayo. Hayaan mo silang magpakmtay!” Pulong said in his Instagram post.
The lawmaker then asked the critics of the President on how they would feel if their father were also being hurt like what they’re doing to the chief executive.
“Para sa inyo mga reklamador, bashers, haters kaaway meron din kayong mga ama kung pagsusuntokin ko ba sila sa harapan ninyo? Ano kayang mararamdaman niyo? Okay lang talaga sakin.” he said.
Pulong statement was reuploaded by netizen Chris Gero and now received 17,000 shares as of writing.
The President is receiving criticisms from some netizens and celebrities amid the enhanced community quarantine being imposed by the government.
However, some defenders of the President said that the people should stop criticizing the chief executive as the country is facing a crisis because of the COVID-19.
