Minaliit ni Senador Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson ang banta ni Communist Party of the Phi­lippines (CPP) foun­ding chairman Jose Maria ‘Joma’ Sison na patalsikin sa puwesto si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.

Ayon kay Lacson, kailanman ay hindi nagtagumpay si Sison, CPP at New People’s Army (NPA) na patalsikin ang anumang administrasyon noong nagdaang 50 taon.

“Sison and the CPP/NPA have been attempting to overthrow the government, past and present and take over government for the past 50 years, by all means possible, mostly violent through armed struggle, even through peace talks aimed at having a coalition go­vernment but still aimed at a takeover, violent or otherwise,” ani Lacson.

“They have not succeeded for the past five decades so I don’t see how they can,” dagdag nito.

Iginiit din nito na bawas na ang grupong CPP at NPA kaya malabo na aniya ang pinaplanong pagpapatalsik sa administrasyong Duterte.

“Right now, they are reduced to a band of extortionists, arsonists and robbers, even a terrorist group,” dagdag nito. (Anne Lorraine Gamo)
