Robin Padilla’s message for Sen. Cayetano

Action star Robin Padilla answered  on Monday to Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, who said  that the action star’s judgement  of his side on the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is linked to politics in Taguig.

 

In a DZMM interview earlier on Monday, Cayetano explained that some people, including Padilla, have accepted the propaganda that he is anti-Muslim given his belief on the BBL and his mistrust of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

 

Padilla addressed via Instagram his message to the senator. Posting  a screenshot of an ABS-CBNnews.com headline on Cayetano’s statements, the actor cited 6 reasons.

 

 "Sir senator Alan Cayetano, una po sa lahat ay wala pong kulay ng pulitika ang aking mga mungkahi patungkol sa inyo sa usapin ng BBL."

 

"Pangalawa, dahil po nabanggit ninyo ang nakalipas, paumanhin po pero wala po akong matandaan na akoy nakipag alyansa sa mga Tiñga noong 2010. Baka po ako’y nakalimot pero ang malinaw po sa aking alaala ay ang 2013 eleksyon."

 

Padilla  was referring to Cayetano, who was a representative of the Taguig-Pateros legislative district, asserting that Padilla is a supporter of the Tiñgas, his family’s erstwhile political rival in the booming city.

 

Padilla added: "Gusto ko rin pong linawin na hindi po ako direktang nakasuporta sa mga Tiñga. Ako po ay sumusuporta sa aking asawa (TV host Mariel Rodriguez) at sa kanyang kapatid na kaibigan si Rica Tiñga.

 

"Kung makakakuha po kayo ng aking talumpati noong gabi ng kampanya, malinaw po doon ang aking hangarin sa mga Tiñga at ang aking kampanya laban sa political dynasty at pork barrel."

 

Rica Tiñga was defeated by Cayetano’s wife, former congresswoman Lani Cayetano, in the 2013 mayor position in Taguig.

 

"Pang anim, sir senator," Padilla continued, "wala akong personal na hangarin laban sa inyo."

 

"Ako po’y isang rebolusyonaryo na ang hawak ay katotohanan. Maraming salamat po sa pagbibigay ng panahon sa akin mga saloobin. Mabuhay ang Katipunan at ang mga anak ng bayan," he added.
