Andanar: Tindig Pilipinas "spreading lies to push a selfish agenda."

Tindig Pilipinas on Friday said that President Rodrigo Duterte has become "paranoid and insecure" for saying that he will declare a revolutionary government until the end of his term once he senses that a destabilization plot is about to install a new leader to replace him.

"Pag ang destabilization ninyo patagilid na at medyo magulo na, I will not hesitate to declare a revolutionary government until the end of my term, and I will arrest all of you, and we can go to a full-scale war against the Reds," Duterte said.

In a statement released by Tindig Pilipinas, the group said that Duterte is "losing grip" for threatening to declare revolutionary government.

"Only a paranoid and insecure little man afraid of losing power will rationalize the need to impose a revolutionary government upon the people," the group said in a statement.

"The paranoia is evident. It is manifested in the slide in the surveys, from the increasing numbers of the various forms of protests, from the massive pushback on social media and from the President's increasingly irrational, indefensible and incoherent stances," it added.

Meanwhile, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Martin Andanar on Sunday slammed Tindig Pilipinas and said that the group is "spreading lies to push a selfish agenda."

"That’s their opinion and we don’t share it. We have been working closely with the President and we can assure you that his mind is sound," Andanar said.

"These sort of comments from his detractors only take away attention from more vital issues of the state. We’re confronted with threats all around —from possible conflict in [North Korea] to terrorism from within, in addition to natural calamities and criminality."

But the lies "will not weaken the resolve of the President to carry out what he promised to do —reduce crime and corruption, provide better services for the poorest of our people, and raise the country’s international reputation by showing it cannot be cowed into accepting agreements against its best interests.”
