Beverly Salviejo, one of the celebrities who actively supported President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in the last presidential elections, couldn’t hide his disappointment at how the chief executive allegedly abandoned some of his supporters.
In an interview with Morly Alinio, Beverly explained why she chose BBM last election, saying that he was the best choice among the candidates.
She also believed that the chief executive would prioritize promoting culture and arts like his father, former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr.
However, until now, Beverly didn’t see any signs that the president was promoting the welfare of celebrities like her.
“During that time, siya talaga ang pinakamagandang choice. When it was my time to do my choice, pumili po ako, nasa utak ko na siya ang pinakamahusay for the job,” said Beverly.
“Ako ang aking gusto talaga, sana matutukan ‘yung culture nd arts. Dahil ako, naniniwala ako na sa kultura natin manggagaling yung value formation,” she added.
However, she felt that PBBM was currently sticking with the people who didn’t even actively support him during his campaign.
She accused PBBM of interacting with the ‘dilawans’ or the people who supported the opposition in the last election.
“Sir, bigyan niyo naman po kami ng, give us a fighting chance. lahat ‘yung mga sumuporta sa’yo. Dami namin e, 31 million kami. Bakit parang ngayon hindi masyadong importante. Nakikita namin kasama mo sa Malacanang, kasama mo sa kung saan saan, ‘yung dilawan.” the actress stated.
“Dahil ba sa kailangan mo silang ligawan para kumampi sa’yo? Kailangan mo bang baliwalain kami? Ina-add mo sila pero mina-minus mo kami…Naiinggit ako siguro. Kasi sila ‘yung napapansin e. Asaan kami?” she added.
As of writing, PBBM has yet to give comment on the statement made by Beverly.
