Voltes V: Legacy head writer Suzette Doctolero couldn’t hide her disappointment over the statements made by President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. during his second State of the Nation Address (SONA).
On July 24, the chief executive claimed that they’re already observed the decreasing prices of basic goods.
“Sa mga nakalipas na buwan, nakita natin ang pagbaba ng presyo ng bilihin sa iba’t ibang mga sektor.” said Marcos. “Napatunayan natin na kayang maipababa ang presyo ng bigas, karne, isda, gulay, at asukal.”
“Malaking tulong ang KADIWA stores na ating muling binuhay at inilunsad. Ang layunin ng KADIWA ay pag-ugnayin ang mga magsasaka at ang mga mamimili. Walang iba pang namamagitan. Walang dagdag na gastos at patong. Maganda ang kita ng magsasaka. Nakakatipid din ang mga mamimili.” he added.
Doctolero, who’s also known as the creator of Encantadia, called Marcos ‘out of touch’ because of his frequent travels abroad.
“Kakabyahe, out of touch na,” she said.
“Nakita natin ang pagbaba ng mga bilihin”
Kakabyahe, out of touch na.

Most of Suzette’s followers agreed with what the writer said.
It can be recalled that many people complained about the effects of inflation in the past two years.
To counter the effects of the rising prices of goods, the Marcos administration deployed Kadiwa stores to sell cheaper products to the Filipinos.
