- DILG Secretary Eduardo Año wants a change in the plot of “Ang Probinsyano”
- He seconded the appeal of PNP Chief Abayalde regarding the bad image that the show causes
- Eduardo said that he is also willing to speak with Coco Martin
Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año also made a strong demand to “Ang Probinsyano” over its plot that allegedly creates bad impression to the image of Philippine police.
KAMI learned that the top-rating teleserye is now facing heavy controversies which started when PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde called the portrayal of policemen in the show as “unfair.”
Eduardo, who has administrative supervision over the PNP, recently took a swipe and appealed that the drama series must be rewritten for the benefit of police.
He also claimed that the show is damaging the morale of the armed forces specifically those who are performing good in their profession.
"Kahit part lang ng segment ay 'yung buong organization ay masama, ang namumuno ay masama, ang laki ng epekto sa mga nanonood no'n. Hindi natin gusto ipatigil, gusto nating baguhin 'yung kanilang plot," the Secretary quipped in an interview with Rappler.
"It affects the morale of the PNP, especially those who are doing good in their job. Tinataya nila ang buhay nila diyan para mai-save kung sino man 'yung ise-save,” he added.
Because of this, Eduardo admitted that he is open for possibility of talking to Coco Martin who serves as the lead actor, writer, and director of “Ang Probinsyano.”
The Secretary also emphasized that he will bring up his appeal to the said actor if he is given a chance to speak with him.
"If there's a chance, why not?" he replied.
In a previous article by KAMI, Police Chief Albayalde aired his strong demand to “Ang Probinsyano” after questioning its bad portrayal.
Ang Probinsyano is a primetime drama series aired in ABS-CBN for more than three years now. According to surveys, it continues to be the most watched television program in Philippine TV nowadays.
