Barry Gutierrez, spokesman of the Office of the Vice President, refuted the claims on social media that those who came to the grand rally of VP Leni did so voluntarily.
He expressed such sentiment during the Biserbisyong Leni program on DZXL.
"‘Yung pagpunta doon sa mga venue, talagang ‘yung mga tao ay naglalakad, talagang sila ang nagkukusang magpunta diyan. Walang kahakot-hakot sa mga rally na ito," he said.
He even lamented how politicians who got used to the "hakot" method, also think the same about others.

"Ang hirap kasi sa ibang mga politiko, siguro nakagawian na nila na doon sa mga rally nila talagang hakot ang kailangan nilang gawin para magkatao. So iniisip nila, ‘yun lang ang tanging paraan para magkaroon ng tao sa isang political rally," he said.
VP Leni Robredo is the incumbent vice president of the Philippines. She is a human rights lawyer. Her husband was the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo. They have three daughters.
VP Leni Robredo took to Twitter and personally thanked the wife of the driver of the motorcyle who brought her to the grand rally in Cavite. Replying to the tweet of Kristine Danica Mariano, she even said sorry for having used their motorcycle, as it was brought about by such great need. She then reiterated her thanks and told Kristine to tell her husband, Sherwin, that she says thank you for bringing her safely to the venue. In response, Kristine thanked VP profusely and even said that it was an honor for them to be of service to VP.
The wife of the driver of the motorcycle, which VP Leni rode going to the Cavite grand rally took to Twitter to express her thoughts on the event. She said that her husband is still feeling "kilig" and she was also quite anxious that their motorcycle was dirty. "Nakakahiya," she mentioned, perhaps thinking had they known VP Leni will ride it, they could have cleaned it up. Nonetheless, she really thanked VP for the honor of having used their motorcycle .
