LIBERAL Party (LP) presidential candidate Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd has slammed Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero for his “ignorance” about the province of Capiz.
Roxas was reacting to Escudero’s statements made while campaigning in Roxas’ hometown of Capiz on Wednesday that Roxas has not done enough to steer Capiz to progress.
“What can you expect from somebody like Chiz na saling pusa [who dips his hands in everything]? He just wants to include his name in the national conversation,” the LP standard-bearer said in a chance interview.
Roxas then dared Escudero to name the things he did for the benefit of his home province of Sorsogon.
“We should also ask him what happened to Sorsogon. What I know is that Capiz, which used to be a poor area with no water, electricity and business investments, is now a progressive province with lots of Jollibee branches and malls,” he said.
“Capiz has been developing well, and the people there can attest to that. There are jobs and the families can spend for their food and other basic needs,” Roxas added.
