LOOK: Roxas walk away when the media asked him about the Yolanda aid program.
Mar Roxas likes to present himself as clean and genuine however his opponents paint him as a liar and a hypocrite.
One of the issues that keeps on following Mar Roxas is the Yolanda aid program and when he was asked about it, he walked away.
According to Philippine Daily Inquirer, in the midst of his touring in the Visayas to earn support from neighborhood officials over his presidential offer, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas left a gathering of columnists after being asked his sentiment on the problem-plagued Emergency Shelter Assistance (ESA) fund set aside for survivors of Typhoon Yolanda.
During a meeting, Roxas was asked by an ABS-CBN columnist on his stand in regards to the ESA which has been loaded with deferrals and affirmed anomalies.
In response, the Interior Secretary replied with “Well, whose agency is supposed to…?”
When the reporter answered Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Roxas shot back with “What is my agency?” before suddenly going out of the room.
The interview lasted a mere 17 seconds, with many reporters saying they were surprised by the Interior Secretary’s sudden walk-out.
He also refused to entertain further questions.
However, the allies of Roxas said he was just in a hurry to get to Bacolod City, Negros Occidental and wasn’t out to snub anyone.
