Sa isang social media post, ibinahagi ni Davao City Information Officer Jery Tupas ang mensahe ng retiradong heneral na si Alan Luga kay Vice President Leni Robredo. Hindi nagustuhan ng dating heneral ang ginagawang pagpapel ni Leni sa gitna ng kalamidad. Ipinaalala ng dating military official na wala sa command line ang bise presidente.
“Ma’am, you are not in the command line. How can you even coordinate and direct as you claimed? Out of courtesy, kung sino man yong kausap mo ma’am, you were being informed what they already planned and intended to do or what NDRRMC have long directed them to do,
Please, don’t grab credit by saying to the whole world you coordinated the reason why they acted. Please dont say that. You are insulting the capacity and dedication of our AFP, PNP, PCG, DSWD and all other agencies being controlled by OCD/NDRRMC during times like this. Understand what NDRRMCs mandate and capacity. They know what they are doing,” sabi ni Luga.
Sa parehas na social media post, pinasaringan ni Tupas si Leni at pinayuhan ito na mamasukan na lang daw bilang team leader sa call center.
” I think Leni — maybe her intentions were good. But we already know what they say about good intentions and hell.
Anyway, ma’am, since magaling kayo sa tawag-tawag na yan — marami yatang opening sa maraming BPO companies. Pwede kayo sigurong mag-TL na lang imbis na mag-VP,” resbak ni Tupas.
Magugunita na pinuna rin ng radio host na si Mark Lopez ang inasta ni Leni. Ayon kay Lopez, tila pinalalabas na si Leni ang nagtitimon sa gobyerno.
“Reading posts now of people asking to be rescued. We deployed our security team to coordinate with AFP all the calls for rescue we are reading now… Pahupain lang nila ng konti para makalagpas mga truck nila with rubber boats. ‘Yung Air Force nag-deploy na din po rescue units sa Ilagan City na binabaha na din daw po,” boladas ni Leni.
