Belgica To LP Senators Affected By Revamp: Beggars Can Not Be Choosers

"Pinag bibigyan na nga sila, aabuso pa? You can not play both sides of the boat. You have to choose. Are you in or out. Binigyan ka na nga lang, nagririklamo ka pa. Beggars can not be choosers."
Belgica LP senators
After their ouster, Liberal Party (LP) President and Senator Francis Pangilinan, who was removed from his post as chairman of the Senate agriculture committee, on Monday said he, along with Senators Franklin Drilon, Paolo Benigno Aquino IV and Risa Hontiveros met over the weekend over the possibility that they be stripped of their chairmaships, GMA News reported.

We saw the writing on the wall.

Talagang hindi sila papayag dahil sa 'ting pambabatikos sa mga patakaran ng pamahalaan lalo na dito sa extrajudicial killings (EJKs) pati sa death penalty.
Pangilinan thinks the recent moves against the LP are all connected.

Ito ay kasama sa plano dahil hindi komportable ang administrasyon sa pagiging kritiko [namin] sa ilang mga bagay.
However, a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte and former councilor of the sixth district of the City of Manila, Greco Belgica, said in a Facebook post that, "Chairmanships of the committees are for administration Senators. Because the opposition are suppose to be critics of administration measures."

Kindly read his complete statement below.
In the 1st place hindi naman talaga dapat bigyan ng chairmanship ang opposition dahil opposition nga sila. Chairmanships of the committees are for administration Senators. Because the opposition are suppose to be critics of administration measures.

Pinag bibigyan na nga sila, aabuso pa? You can not play both sides of the boat. You have to choose. Are you in or out. Binigyan ka na nga lang, nagririklamo ka pa. Beggars can not be choosers.

Don't make a big fuss out of it. Man up to your choice. You chose to be in the opposition. Do your job. Pasalamat nga kayo dahil ngayon you can be genuine opposition. This is your time to shine and talk about your advocacies without looking like fools. Playing critics and enjoying the privilege of those you critisize. Hindi na kayo hilaw na opposition.
On that note, commenters on Belgica's Facebook post quickly agreed on him, telling:

They deserve it. Ganyan talaga buhay minsan nasa taas minsan nasa baba. Pabebe masyado kesyo control of power, it is a simple case of loss of confidence and incompetence.

Gusto nila magrally? Now they have more time to do it. Better yet RESIGN as SENATORS and be a FULLTIME RALLYIST. Ang saya2 lang ng linggong eto. 😂😂😂👊👊👊
Buti sana kung criticism ang ginagawa. Every move of the administration they tend to get livid. For check and balance need talaga ng pamumuna, pero yung ginagawa nila is over the top. Did not see these senators setting aside their political differences for the Motherland.
They are not Du30's CRITICS...they are better called PERSECUTORS of CHANGE. What they want for Filipinos and our country is to remain under the yellow cult control. They cannot accept the TRUTH that people are not under their spell anymore. And they cannot defeat the true PEOPLE'S POWER. They may have the money but God has the control.
Meanwhile, Chief Presidential legal counsel Salvador Panelo has denied the involvement of the Palace in the ouster of the LP senators on their chairmanships.
