Taguig Politics Behind Robin Padilla’s Push for BBL

Senartor Alan Peter Cayetano has accused actor Robin Padilla of playing politics when the latter specifically named him as one of the lawmakers who should brush up on history before giving their opinion on the Bangsamoro. “May special mention (ang pangalan ko) kasi malapit siya sa mga Tinga, so everytime na may mga issue po talagang tinutuligsa kami,” Cayetano said in a radio interview Monday morning. He said Padilla was a supporter of the Tingas during the 2010 and 2013 elections. The Tingas and Cayetanos are political rivals in Taguig. He added the Cayetanos and Muslim residents has invited the actor several times to show the development in Taguig.


“Nagsalita siya nung 2010 at 2013 para sa mga Tinga ilang beses po naming winelcome si Robin Padilla sa Taguig, ilang beses po siyang minessage. Iniimbitahan siya ng mga Muslim para maipakita yung development,” the senator said. Cayetano said that he is ready to talk with Padilla but unfortunately the latter has already branded him as anti-Muslim because of his opposition to the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law. “Kung history pag-uusapan, magkape kami ni Robin wala pong problema yan pero ang problema tinanggap na nya yung propaganda na ako ay anti-Muslim. Pag ikaw po ay anti-MILF hindi ibig sabihin na ikaw ay anti-Muslim, anti-peace,” he said. Cayetano has repeatedly made statements against BBL and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. Padilla, in a post on his Instagram account Monday night, belied the accusations of Cayetano saying there was no politics involved in his statement. “Gusto ko pong linawin na hindi po ako direktang nakasuporta sa mga Tinga, ako po ay sumusuporta sa aking asawa at sa kanyang kaibigan na si Rica Tinga. Kung makakakuha po kayo ng aking talumpati noong gabi ng kampanya, malinaw po doon ang aking hangarin sa mga Tinga ay ang aking kampanya laban sa political dynasty at pork barrel,” Robin Padilla said.
