Alejano slams Panelo for ignoring Del Rosario's advice: Kayo ang komunista!

Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano once again hit the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Alejano was irked by Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo casual response to the recommendations given by former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario following the reported sinking of a Filipino fishing boat reportedly caused by a Chinese vessel.

Earlier, the former Foreign Affairs official gave his suggestion that the Philippine government should now take a “multilateral approach” after the recent incident, which further escalated the tensions between the two countries.

However, Panelo allegedly ignored Del Rosario’s advice, saying the government should not be told what to do.

This statement from Panelo reportedly irked Alejano saying any Filipino citizen has the right to demand from his government.

“Any Filipino citizen has the right to demand from his govt. A government that does not want its citizens to demand is an authoritarian or communist,” Alejano said in a Facebook post.

On June 13, ABS CBN reported that Panelo ignored Del Rosario’s comments to hold China accountable on the collision of its vessel and Filipino fishing boat.

"He doesn't have to tell us what to do. We know what to do. Dapat ginawa nila 'yan noon nung sila 'yung andiyan pa” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said during a Palace press briefing.
