Statement of Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon on recent remarks made by House Speaker Allan Cayetano on Vice President Leni Robredo

I am saddened by his statement. Such comments are totally uncalled for, especially coming from the Speaker of the House.

It cannot be denied that illegal drug continues to be a problem, notwithstanding the over 5,000 deaths from the Operation Tokhang.

The gravity of this issue on illegal drugs calls for every one to set aside politics. In the remaining two and a half years of the administration, we should all work together to solve this problem.

Malacanang has vowed full support for the Vice President in order to fulfill this enormous task. We expect the allies of this administration to do no less.
