“Dela Rosa should buckle down to work or better yet give the job to someone else who is dead serious in leading the PNP in its multi-pronged war against drugs, criminals and the scalawags within its ranks,” Alvarez said in a statement.
However, he took back his statement, and said that the people should give him another chance to prove himself.
“I have said my piece at ito naman ay siguro… ay sasang-ayon ako doon sa mga ibang nagmungkahi na bibigyan natin ng pagkakataon si Chief PNP natin na ayusin yung mga gusot na hinaharap ngayon ng PNP,” Alvarez said.
“Alam naman nating lahat na hindi rin ganoon kadali yung trabaho, sa dami ng scalawags na naiwan ngayon sa PNP. Mayroong mga matitino ano, marami,” Alvarez added.
Meanwhile, Former DILG chair Rafael Alunan III said that his call for “Bato” to resign was “a shot across the bow.”
“The war on crime calls for 24/7 "tutuk" to ensure proper execution in a timely and comprehensive manner. His appetite for publicity has raised suspicions that he is spending too much time cultivating his nest for an elective post in 2019 at the expense of the war on drugs, crime and corruption,” Alunan said in his Facebook status.
However, he explained, the Congress should give the PNP the financial means to effectively clean the house, or rid itself of the scalawags, and to upgrade its protection of society’s safety and security.
Alunan suggested that the Congress should pass a law that would then make it possible for the criminal justice system to be reformed and to amend the already existing laws to close gaps and to sync the related laws.

"A TOUGH CALL TO MAKE
"The call to resign was a shot across the bow to remind the PNP Chief that he wasn't performing up to par and that the shortcomings were undermining PRRD's law and order campaign. Could the Speaker be saying it for PRRD? Maybe, maybe not; but he wouldn't have raised if it wasn't pre-discussed.
"The war on crime calls for 24/7 "tutuk" to ensure proper execution in a timely and comprehensive manner. His appetite for publicity has raised suspicions that he is spending too much time cultivating his nest for an elective post in 2019 at the expense of the war on drugs, crime and corruption.
"The C,PNP should read the signs properly, the Speaker's broadside is one, and address the matter with maturity and circumspection. He must focus on his primary responsibility to clean up the PNP of scalawags and professionally manage the war on drugs, crime and corruption.
"Congress, however, should also provide the PNP the wherewithal to clean house and effectively combat the threats to society's safety and security. It should pass an enabling law to reform the criminal justice system, and amend existing laws to close gaps and sync related laws."
