Singer-Actress Lea Salonga shared her thoughts on the current problems being faced by the Duterte administration today, including the increasing prices of basic goods because of the inflation.
Lea is celebrating her 40th anniversary of her career this year and she did a concert’s press conference last September 25 at the Peninsula Manila hotel in Makati.
However, she’s wondering why only now the Filipinos are so being angry in the increasing prices of goods.
During her interview, she said before we complain over that matter, we should think first if it was also happened during the previous administration and that’s the time we make our unbiased judgement.
“We are affected to the point where there are certain goods and services that we buy that are affected, I mean that I don’t like to see my electric bill go up, I don’t like it when the price of vegetables, I mean we buy locally grown produce and when you see price has changed, is it like ‘why?’” said Salonga.
“And then you wonder, you gotta wonder.. it is if we’re angry about this, we have to see if it’s happened in previous administrations before and if we got angry then too… And if it happened before and didn’t get angry then we might examine why that is,” she added.
According to her, like other Filipinos, she also doesn’t want to see her utility bills and grocery spending to increase.
Salonga’s statement has been captured by reporter MJ Marfori about inflation received praises on social media.
