Leni supporters in Nueva Ecija got pissed-off over Senator Ping Lacson’s irresponsible and incorrect insinuation that the final crowd count for the Anehan: Nueva Ecija People’s Rally is propaganda for VP Leni’s presidential bid.
However, the organizers of the people’s rally held last March 22, received this crowd estimate from the local Philippine National Police and rescue team on ground.
The reports said 50,000 Novo Ecijanos showed up in Cabanatuan to support VP Leni and Senator Kiko Pangilinan, all sharing belief in Gobyernong Tapat, Angat Buhay Lahat.
“It is an insult to us all to hear a former Senator and aspiring presidential candidate that we would lie about rally attendance,” the Leni group said.
“Senator Lacson serves no cause by throwing these accusations around; maybe his reason for doing so is after seeing the number of supporters VP Leni has in his home province of Cavite.”
