‘Cover-up re Puno controversy exposes Aquino-KKK corrupt ways’
Anakbayan wants all PNP contracts suspended and reviewed
Youth group Anakbayan today said that Aquino’s contradictory statements and inconsistencies regarding the controversy surrounding the resignation of Department of Interior and Local Goverment (DILG) undersecretary Rico Puno are “indicative of a cover-up” and expose clearly the “corrupt politics” of the Aquino administration.
“Environmentalist kaya si presidente? Kasi pag Puno ang usapan, talagang todo siya magtanggol,” Anakbayan chairperson Vencer Crisostomo jokingly said.
Crisostomo said it is obvious that Aquino “is doing everything he can to shield Puno from controversy, to the point that he is caught lying and issuing contradicting statements.”
“Despite the anomalies and charges Puno is facing, he is still very confident that he will be appointed to another government post. Mukhang matibay ang ugat ng Puno, kasi yan naman talaga ang malakas ang kapit,” said Crisostomo.
Crisostomo called for an immediate, independent probe on Puno regarding anomalous gun contracts and the “raid” on former DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo’s office and condo.
“We may be seeing just the tip of the iceberg. All contracts and transactions under Puno’s watch should be immediately suspended, reviewed and investigated,” he said.
He called on the public to vigilant and to expose further Aquino’s corrupt and KKK ways.
“This incident, along with many others we have witnessed this past year, shows that the ‘tuwid na daan’ and ‘good governance’ slogan is a myth. The Aquino administration is clearly in power to protect the interests of his kamag-anaks, cronies and his class,” he said.
He called on the Palace to tell all truth and stop all spins and cover-ups.
“The more you cover-up, the more tracks you leave. Sooner or later the people will know the truth,” he said.
