The Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) today commended Vice President Leni Robredo for her consistent performance in helping pandemic and calamity victims. “We recognize and appreciate her sincere efforts. She has indeed stepped up to her task as Vice President. Her presence and visibility are significant at crucial times when the President is nowhere to be found.”
KMP said Duterte’s meltdown over Robredo only proved his ineptitude and irresponsibility.
“Duterte’s “inutil at sinungaling” remark against Robredo is an apparent defense mechanism and a projection of his actions and hostile attitude.”
Farmers also advised Robredo not to be fazed by Duterte’s lashing and misogynist tirades. “Duterte’s infuriation toward Robredo only proved the President’s severe insecurity and brusque macho attitude,” said KMP chairperson emeritus and former DAR Secretary Rafael Mariano.
“In the past several destructive typhoons, the best that Duterte did were aerial inspections of devastated areas. The people need to see genuine service and compassion from him. Hindi siya ibinoto ng mamamayan para maging drone,” Mariano said.
According to DANGGAYAN-KMP, at least 184, 802 families 700,024 individuals affected by the typhoons require help in Cagayan, Isabela, Qurino, Nueva Vizcaya provinces. ###
