PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III slammed Friday former Vice President Noli de Castro who continued to criticize his administration despite the reforms that his government has been implementing.

In a speech in Oriental Mindoro, Aquino did not mention De Castro's name, but he was apparently referring to the former vice president.

"Patuloy ang paglaban natin sa katiwalian at paglikha ng pagkakataon sa ating mga kababayan. Pero hindi nga po siguro mawawala ang iilang pursigido pa ring magbahid ng duda sa ating mga reporma. Meron po diyan, ganado pang magkomento ng negatibo, gayong kasama naman sila sa mga naging pinuno ng bansa; imbes na maibsan ang pagdurusa ng nasasakupan, pinalala pa ito," he said.

"At ngayon, bagaman tinutugunan na natin ang mga problemang ipinamana sa atin, hindi pa rin nagsawa sa paghirit ang itinuturing kayong 'kabayan'," Aquino said apparently referring to De Castro who hailed from Oriental Mindoro.

De Castro, after stepping down from office as vice president of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2010, returned to his previous job as a news anchor at ABS-CBN Channel 2.

The President said that there were those who wanted to bring back the old system wherein they were only thinking of their own interest.

"Ang hamon po sa inyo sa Mindoro, at sa bawat Pilipinong kasangga natin sa agenda ng reporma: maging mapagmatyag sa kung ano ang totoo, at maging mulat sa motibo ng naghahasik ng negatibismo," he said. (SDR/Sunnex)
