Jimmy Bondoc kay Agot Isidro: Most of your comments are wrong, basta mo na lang kaming hinusgahan
NIRESBAKAN ni Jimmy Bondoc ang singer-actress na si Agot Isidro matapos okrayin ang Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) tungkol sa pansamatalang pagpapatigil ng medical/financial aid sa mga nangangailangan.
Nag-comment si Agot sa naging desisyon ng PAGCOR na itigil muna ang pagbibigay ng tulong pinansiyal matapos mabuking ang modus ng mag-asawang nameke ng dokumento para makakuha ng medical assistance.
Agad na pinaimbestigahan ng pamunuan ng PAGCOR kasabay ng pagpapahinto pansamantala sa kanilang medical aid assistance.
Ni-retweet ni Agot ang isang new item tungkol dito na may caption na, “This is not fair. Why punish everyone for the sins of a few?
“Marami ang nangangailangan ng medical assistance. This is not right,” dagdag ng aktres.
Nang makarating kay Jimmy Bondoc ang tweet ni Agot, agad siyang nag-post sa Facebook ng mahabang open letter para sa singer-actress.
“Dear Mam Agot Isidro,
“This message comes with sincere and utmost respect for you as a Filipina woman, and as one who seems to have strong beliefs regarding our nation, regardless of partisanship.
“I was informed that you expressed strong criticism about our temporary stoppage of accepting walk-in requests for medical assistance.
“Instead of a long reply, I thought it best to simply enumerate just 2 important points and developments.
“First and foremost, due to the quick response of all concerned agencies, we are now receiving walk-in requests again, provided that they have been verified by the PCSO.
“This is not red tape, uunahan na kita. This is based on many legal reasons. But like I said, I would rather keep it short. Feel free to read the PCSO and PAGCOR charters, which are available online.
“Second, I would just like to share a personal wish. I wish that more people as smart and as influential as you would be more active regarding governance. Believe it or not, your opinions are very welcome.”
Pagpapatuloy pa ng PAGCOR official, “However, I also wish that more people as capable as you would engage in government work, even for a limited period only. I’m not sure of your work history, if you have already been employed in a plantilla position, or if you’ve ever been elected.
“If not, then I think you should try it. I really believe that that is the only way for people like you and people like me to understand each other better.”
“I really wanted to avoid saying this, but I must. Most of your comments are wrong, but they are not wrong because you are stupid, contrary to what many of your critics say. I know you are smart.
“But mam, you truly are extremely misinformed due to what seems to be a very sheltered existence. But I may be wrong.
“You criticize the temporary stoppage as if it was done to persecute the putative donees, but I am willing to bet that you have no idea as to what our charter actually mandates us to perform, and what particular resolutions and orders define our socio-civic function.
“Basta mo na lamang kaming hinusgahan. Which is fine. But you did not even think of the consequences that your statement could have created, had we not been quick enough to resume operations today.
“And I hope you don’t claim credit for this, for your ‘vigilance.’ We did not reopen for people like you.
“We reopened out of a sense of duty, and after much deliberation and investigation. Besides, I have just learned of your opinion this morning, long after we have decided to resume.”
“Sana talaga, maka-work si Mam Agot sa gobyerno. Sana, maranasan niyo rin po yung mahawa kung minsan sa mga sakit ng mga nangangailangan.
“O kaya yung ma-question araw-araw kung bakit maliit ang bigay sa donee, pero pag nilakihan mo, ay ma-question ulit.
“Sana talaga makapag-trabaho kayo sa gobyerno. In fact, I challenge you.
“I respectfully challenge you. If you accept, I will personally ask my bosses if we could endorse you to an office that you are qualified for.
“After a year, I am almost sure that you would be kinder, slower to anger and judgment, and perhaps, more enlightened as a human being.
