Sotto lectures Isko: “Wala kaming mga media na nakabuntot sa amin 24 oras para makaEPAL lang sa panahon ng COVID-19"

The Senate President is schooling the young mayor of Manila and reminded the latter that they are doing their own public service without the spotlight of media reporting every inch of it.

This following Manila Mayor Isko’s emotional address where he challenged the senators to make thrie presence more felt in stepping up as regards to helping the people.

“Mga kababayan, bilang Pangulo ng Senado, nais ko po, una sa lahat, pasalamatan ang lahat ng ating mamamayan lalo na ang mga tagapangalaga ng kalusugan na tumutulong ng taos puso at walang pagyayabang. Ang pagtulong sa kapwa na walang hinihintay na kapalit o papuri ang tunay na dakila,” Sotto said in a statement.

“Para naman dun sa ilang kababayan natin na nagyayabang at mahilig maghamon sa mga Senador at pulitiko na lumabas at tumulong sa kapwa, sana mahimasmasan kayo at magkaroon ng tamang katinuan,” Sotto seems to be answering the call of Moreno

“Wala kaming mga media na nakabuntot sa amin 24 oras para makaEPAL lang sa panahon ng COVID-19 (We don’t have the media following us 24 hours a day just so we can show off amid COVID-19),” Sotto stressed, compared to the Local Government Units.

“Batid namin na hindi ito ang panahon ng pasikatan o pagalingan. Lahat tayo dapat panalo sa laban na ito. Walang Pilipinong maiiwan (This is not the time to show off or compete. All of us should win this, no Filipino should be left behind),” Sotto adds.

Duty of the Senators

In the Senate President’s tweet posted today, he reiterates his stance that the duty of senators is to “promptly pass the enabling law so the [executive department] can use [government] funds to respond during this health crisis.”

“We did so in 18 hrs,” he noted. “It’s not our mandate to repack rice and sardines with a complete PR [public relations] team around us. Some of us do, WITHOUT the PR team!”
In another separate statement the Senate President said that senators, “have not been sitting idly in our homes” as they have been going around to check and distribute goods to frontliners and families in need.

“We have always been around, but we are unlike some who constantly seek public applause for their every action even that which are actually just perfunctory,” the senate president said.

Sotto threw the challenge to those who would like to know what they are doing in this time of pandemic, they can ask and they will be provided with the detailed list of their actions.

“There is no need to come up with those dramatic, teary-eyed, voice-breaking appeals uploaded on social media platforms. That is not only cheap, but it reeks so much of traditional politics,” he stressed.
