Ano naman kaya ang pwede niyang ipagmalaki sa SONA? Mga patayan? Mga kasinungalingan?" said De Lima,

Senator Leila de Lima on Friday threw shade on President Rodrigo Duterte ahead of his upcoming State of the Nation Address, saying the chief executive would have little to show for his speech on July 24.
"
Ano naman kaya ang pwede niyang ipagmalaki sa SONA? Mga patayan? Mga kasinungalingan?" said De Lima, who is currently detained on drug charges following Duterte's accusations of her involvement in the narcotics trade at the National Penitentiary.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the hearing on her 'disobedience to summons' case in Quezon City, De Lima noted that Duterte's campaign promise to end crime has lapsed.
"Paalala po sa kanya, lampas lampas na po ang kanyang deadline ng 3-6 months 'yung droga nandiyan pa rin, bumalik na nga sa Bilibid," she said.
"Kasi hinayaan nilang mamayagpag 'yung mga drug convicts na 'yan. In exchange doon sa pagtestify nila sa akin," the senator added.
De Lima also brought up other issues that she said has remained unresolved such as contractualization, salary of security personnel, massive traffic around the metro and price of commodities.
"'Yung mga may kasong may katiwalian, 'di ba pinalaya nila? 'Yung endo, 'yung sweldo ng sundalo at pulis, 'yung traffic kamusta na ba, bumababa na ba? presyo ng bilihin tumataas ba? So ano ho ang ipagmamalaki nila sa SONA?" De Lima said. —JST/KVD, GMA News
