Duterte challenges LP to answer 6 years of corruption under Aquino: Madali lang kasi magdaldal

President Rodrigo Duterte slammed the Liberal Party and its allies for being too quick to criticize him so that they could make their image look better than him and to make people forget what they did when they were in power.

In an interview after visiting wounded soldiers in Camp Evangelista Station Hospital in Cagayan de Oro, Duterte said the LP members in the House and Senate, criticized him on different issues including his war on drugs, hero's burial given to late President Ferdinand Marcos, and up to his declaration of martial law in Mindanao.

The President said these people should heed the lesson of history that those who find fault with others end up repeating the same scenarios.

Duterte set the case of former President and Incumbent Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, as an example who was the prime target in PNoy Aquino's administration.

Arroyo was detained at the Veterans Memorial Hospital for almost the entire ppresidency term of PNoy and was charged for plunder.

Arroyo walked out of her hospital arrest last July after the Supreme Court declared acquittal from her case.

"Madali lang kasi magdaldal, magpapogi. It's very easy to, you know, criticize. But history has shown na yung nagki-criticize, yung noon Liberal sinasabi 'corrupt corrupt' si Arroyo. Ngayon, sila, o tignan mo yung six years eh di puro corruption, said Duterte.

At present, the cabinet officials have sought a probe for government fund misuse through the pork barrel and disbursement acceleration program under the Aquino administration.
