Yesterday, VP Leni Robredo issued a statement in time for the 33rd EDSA People Power 1 anniversary celebration with an appeal to the public to discard misconception that “EDSA is dilawan.”
The VP statement as per News5 reads: “Sana ma-break na ang misconception na ang EDSA ay ‘dilawan.’ Dahil tingin ko, kapag ganito iyong pagtingin natin, insulto ito sa napakaraming Pilipino na wala namang affiliations noong 1986. Iyong EDSA kasi, pagpapaalala na hindi ito defined by isang kulay, hindi siya defined by any group, hindi siya defined by pulitika.”
Prolific social media blogger MJ Quiambao Reyes has taken to Facebook questioning Leni Robredo’s motives for making such statement.
Reyes opened the FB post with an emphatic all-caps opening question addressed to Robredo, “LAGLAGAN NA?”
In other words, Reyes asked Robredo if she has a change of heart and now ditching her Yellow masters who puts her into power?
Reyes sounded dismissive of Leni Robredo’s statement, saying Robredo should have said this or reminded former President B.S. Aquino, her deceased husband and party mates when the LP were in power.
Reyes told Robredo that if there was someone who strengthened that misconception, it’s none other than Yellow party who made EDSA People Power their property or destroyed Philippine democracy?
Reyes added that in the previous admin, LP made “yellow” the unofficial national color and almost replaced the Philippine flag with the yellow ribbon.
Reyes also accused the dilawans of enriching themselves while in power while the rest of the nation wallowed in poverty.
Towards the end of the FB post, Reyes slams Robredo and the “Dilawans” for calling an end to misconception about EDSA and ‘dilawan’ after they have been exposed.
Reyes begged for Robredo’s clarification if she is disowning the very party that puts her into power? Or Robredo was only trying to fool the public to win the votes for the OtsoDiretso candidates?

Sana sinabi at ipinaalala mo yan kay dating pangulong B.S. Aquino, sa iyong yumaong esposo, at sa iyong kapartido noong kasagsagan ng kapangyarihan ninyo. Kasi kung may gumawa at nagpalakas ng misconception na sinasabi mo, walang iba kundi ang partidong dilaw na umangkin sa diwa ng EDSA at umari (o yumari) ng demokrasya.
Noon, kulang na lang ay gawin nyo’ng national color ang nakakasilaw na dilaw at palitan ang bandila ng yellow ribbon. At syempre, kayo kayo rin lang na mga naninilaw ang umasenso sa buhay habang nganga naman ang mga nasa laylayan.
Ngayong exposed na ang mga kahunghangan, tsaka ka nananawagan na sana mawala na ang misconception sa EDSA at ‘dilawan’? Nangangahulugan ba ito na isinusuka mo na ang partido at kulay na ‘nagluklok’ sa iyo sa puwesto o gusto nyo lang bilugin ang ulo ng mga tao para makakuha ng boto ang otso otso de impatso?
