Sen. Bato dela Rosa, on Tuesday, hit back at senatorial candidate Raffy Tulfo due to the latter's statement describing the drug war as "definitely a failure."
Bato was interviewed by Karen Davila on ANC's Headstart and he frankly expressed his thoughts on the statement of the senatorial candidate.
"Noon hangang-hanga siya sa drug war. Ngayon failure na. Sino siya para magjudge na failure ang drug war? Siguro yung mga taong nagsasabi na failure ang drug war, ito yung mga tao na nakatira sa gated community, posh subdivisions, very safe sila sa pamumuhay doon dahil guwardiyado sila," said Bato.
Aside from lambasting the broadcaster, he also underscored that there were big-time personalities who were caught because of the drug war waged by the government.

"Ano pala ang mga Intsik na napatay dyan? Mga mayor na namatay, mga congressman na tinamaan sa war on drugs?" asked Bato.
He even stated that, "It only goes to show they're ignorant about the real situation of the drug problem sa Pilipinas."
It can be recalled that in an earlier interview of Raffy Tulfo, he described the drug war as "definitely a failure."
The broadcaster said that it should have been taken a step further where it would involve having more rehabilitation centers in the country.
Raffy believes that with the opening of more rehabilitation centers, there would be lesser addicts, and with lesser addicts, then the supply of drugs would also be lower.
