Rep. Pulong says announcement of lack of funds is not black propaganda

Davao City First District Representative Paolo “Pulong” Duterte on Monday afternoon clarified as “not black propaganda” the streamer posted outside his office informing the Dabawenyos that it is temporarily stopping the release of medical assistance as the Department of Social Works and Development (DSWD) halted the reimbursements of funds to his office.

Rep. Pulong refuted PBA party list Representative Migs Nograles’ claims that the message posted on his office door was “clickbait and misinformation” asking if it is true that DSWD has no funds, why it continues to release medical assistance in her office.

Rep. Pulong said that his office did not say that the DSWD has no funds but rather his office did not receive funds from the DSWD.

“Kami igu lang nagpahibalo ug nangayu ug dispensa tungod ani nga sitwasyon. Walay black propaganda ana madam Congresswoman. Kabalo man mo sa sitwasyon karun, dili kana fake news!” he said in a statement.

Rep. Pulong even challenged her to check the records at the DSWD.

“Ang klaro karun nga dunay gipalabi. Klaro karon nga ginagamit ang kwarta sa tao alang sa pamulitika. Para dautan kami sa katawhan,” he said.

Rep. Pulong said he has no reason not to give what is for the people.

He also said that in his few years as a congressman in Davao City, especially during the pandemic, every Dabawenyo knows that the assistance that has been distributed is more than what is given by the current government.

“Ug apil na diri ang personal nakong pondo,” Rep. Pulong said.

Rep. Pulong told the “other politician” to stop politicizing the giving of assistance as the election is still very far.

“Hangyu lang nako, kung mutabang ta, tabang lang. Ayaw na ninyu pulitikaha kay luoy ang katawhan ug layu pa pud ang election. Wala pud ko kahinumdum madam congresswoman nga gidaug-daug mo sa panahon sa akong amahan bisan pa man sa mga nahitabo kaniadto. Again, hangyu ko buhaton lang nato atong trabaho para sa katawhan,” he said.

Rep. Pulong also urged the Dabawenyos to seek medical and financial assistance from the PBA party.

“Sa akong mga pinalanggang Dabawenyo, tungod kay ga-awas-awas ang pondo sa PBA, ako kamong giawhag na muduol kanila alang sa inyong mga medikal ug pinansyal nga panginahanglan. Kwarta kana sa katawhan, kwarta kana ninyo busa inyong pahimuslan!” he said.
