Action star Robin Padilla urged the public to remain vigilant even after the Supreme Court has declared the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), more known as the pork barrel, as unconstitutional.

Padilla said the duty of the people to be watchful over the conduct of the country’s elected officials should not stop at the court’s decision.

Baka gumawa ulit ng batas ang mga ‘yun, makuha nila sa ibang pangalan naman. Sana bantayan natin ito mga kababayan, huwag tayong maging kampante,” he said.

Padilla, however, hopes that the court decision would continue to lead the country into the “tuwid na daan.”

Maraming salamat sa Supreme Court. Siguro isang paraan na ito para magtuluy-tuloy talaga ang sinasabi nating pagbabag,” he said.

Padilla has been vocal about his disappointment over the alleged misuse of public funds and even called on Senate President Frank Drilon to step down after the lawmaker admitted getting P100 million in Development Acceleration Program funds after the impeachment of former Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Padilla believes every person behind the misuse of the taxpayers’ money should be held accountable. (MNS)
