Former VP Leni Robredo’s courtesy call at the office of DSWD Secretary Erwin Tulfo to discuss for a possible tie up has elicited mixed reactions from the so-called DDS and Marcos loyalist camps.
If you read the caption of the Inquirer, it appears that Robredo’s Angat Buhay offered to help the government ONLY through the speedy dissemination of information on areas hit by calamities.
International relations expert and host of SMNI’s Statecraft program welcomed the news of a possible tie up, saying that the days of Robredo’s NGO trying to steal the thunder from DSWD is done and over with.
Sass Rogando Sasot of the FB page For the Motherland – Sass Rogando Sasot:
Ayan tama yang ganyan Atty. Leni Robredo para hindi mukhang sapaw ang galawan ng NGO nyo.
Bicolano vlogger and Marcos loyalist named Edwin Jamora asked if the meeting and possible tie up has the blessing of the President.
May basbas ba ito ng Presidente?! Or hindi na kailangan President’s nod? Just curious.
In a following FB post, Jamora asked why Robredo’s Angat Buhay needs to piggyback on DSWD? Is she trying to make it appear that PBBM’s admin is an epic failure?
Red Cross became Red Cross on its own. Salvation Army became Salvation Army on its own. Bakit kailangang umangkas ng Angat Buhay sa DSWD? Para ipagmukhaang palpak ang gobyerno PBBM?! [Link here]
Another Marcos loyalist and a Bicolano named Benjie Contreras does not like the idea of the DSWD forging a tie up with Robredo’s Angat Buhay NGO. Contreras lamented that while Tulfo expressed wariness in working with LGUs and the teachers, it looks to him that Tulfo have no trust issue with Robredo, if the tie up pushes through.
Contreras give DSWD Secretary Tulfo a heads up of a possible backlash from the 31M if he decides to work with Robredo.
DSWD Sec Erwin Tulfo walang tiwala sa mga LGUs at mga teachers. Pero kung sakali, sa Pink Nanay at sa Angat Buhay NGA niya meron?
Grabe naman ang pagdududa ni Sec Tulfo sa mga LGUs at mga teachers.
Remember Sec Tulfo ang backlash ng 31M Filipinos pag ikaw naki-tie up sa Angat Buhay. You will feel the wrath of those who supported PBBM.
Another Marcos loyalist and social media influencer named Mark Ian finds no problem with the possibility of the DSWD linking up with Robredo’s Angat Buhay.
Para sa akin , walang masama dito. Kahit sinong gustong tumulong sa pamahalaan ay hindi dapat kinokontra. Mas maraming tulong , mas mainam ! Mas madaming makikinabang.
Ang magandang pagtanggap ng DSWD ay pagpapakita lamang din na seryoso si Pangulong Bongbong Marcos sa kanyang panawagan , ito ay ang pagkakaisa kahit ano man ang iyong kulay sa pulitika.
Sa mga nagagalit at nang mamaliit sa panawagan namin noon, ganito ang pagkakaisa na tinutukoy namin noong kampanya.
