Vice President Leni Robredo, in an interview with the Kandidatalks Go Negosyo Forum, which was in collaboration with ONE News, VP Leni Robredo, answered the accusations that were hurled by Cavite 7th District Rep. Boying Remulla, saying that the attendees of the Cavite grand rally were paid P500.
"Wala din kami pambayad at hindi namin yun gagawin, kasi kung magbabayad kami ng mag-aattend sino yung niloloko namin di ba, sarili din namin yung niloloko namin. Mas mabuti yung organic yung pumupunta dahil yun yung naa-assess mo kung gaano ka kalakas."
"Pero ako nalulungkot ako na magre-resort sa ganito, na hindi pinapahalagahan yung dignidad ng mga taga-Cavite. Eto, kung kung may pruweba, eh di ilabas yung pruweba, pero huwag naman yung basta, basta mag-aaccuse na very irresponsible, tapos yung sabwatan, coalition ba sabwatan, ewan kung anong term yung ginamit, ano yung basis. Ako wala kong nakita at all, ng any indication na pwede kaming, ma-accuse na nakikipagsabwatan kami."
"Insulto sa mga province-mates, nandun ako. Nandun ako, nakita ko yung energy level ng tao, from start to finish. Pag bayad yata, hindi yun ganun. Wala naman akong nakitang mga truck o mga bus na nagdadala sa mga tao. In fact, papunta dun nakita ko andaming naglalakad."
