Noynoy: Palace impounding my ‘pork’

Posted by akosistella on April 12, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said yesterday Malacañang has been impounding his P200-million annual pork barrel fund allocation since he was elected to the Senate in 2007.

“My last was in 2005, which was a SARO (Special Allotment Release Order) for hospitals. None afterwards. Mar (Roxas), I understand, is also not getting any,” he said when asked if he and Roxas received their annual pork barrel allocations.

Aquino, Liberal Party’s presidential candidate, was still a Tarlac congressman in 2005. Senate colleague Mar Roxas is his running mate.

Noynoy: Please spare my mother

LIBERAL Party standard-bearer Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino yesterday warned Sen. Manuel Villar and his Nacionalista Party not to drag his mother, former president Corazon C. Aquino, into their efforts to vilify him through black propaganda.

“Sa akin, di bale, alam ko ganyan ang mangyayari sa kampanya. Pero kung may issue sa nanay ko na patay na e sinasama pa sa kwentong kabulastugan, sobra-sobra (na iyan),” he said.

Text messages and propaganda have been spreading in cyberspace blaming Mrs. Aquino for the Hacienda Luisita dispute and for the alleged appointments in the government of her relatives during her incumbency.
