    Remulla became a trending topic online after his strong accusations of "hakot" and bribery towards a political party that held a grand rally in Cavite last March 4, 2022. According to Remulla, the party spent over P8 million for the grand rally.

    The Cavite solon didn't mention the name but the recent grand rally that happened in General Trias, Cavite was from the party of presidentiable Leni Robredo and vice presidentiable Senator Kiko Pangilinan.

    The organizers claimed that it drew 47,000 attendees. It also went viral after Robredo was seen hitchriding a motorcycle to reach the venue due to the terrible traffic.

    "Sa siyudad ng Cavite, may politiko na nagbabayad ng limang daan sa bawat aattend," Remulla said in a DZRH radio interview aired on Saturday.

    He continued that it was obvious that the attendees were not from Cavite as they were all wearing uniforms and were taken to the venue in jeeps.

    "Tapos may jeep, tapos meron silang staging area, may t-shirt, may uniporme, kumpleto. Kaya alam mo na hindi indigenous kasi naka-uniporme. Hinahakot eh. Ang uniporme nila, syempre pink. Halatang halata. May mga jeep, may takip ‘yung karatula kasi hindi naman talaga taga-roon,” Remulla added.

    Remulla lamented how much that grand rally cost and that it was a desperate move because the survey showed that the candidate was far behind.

    "Kagabi ginastusan nila ‘yun, siguro mahina-hina ‘yung mga anim hanggang walong milyon. Kasi nga desperado na. Kasi ang survey sa Cavite, 64-15,” Remulla said.

    When asked to clarify who is the candidate he was referring to for the 15-percent, he answered, "Si pink, si dilaw."

    It can be recalled that the Remulla clan, led by Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla earlier endorsed presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos and vice presidential candidate Sara Duterte-Carpio. Remulla assured that the Marcos tandem will have a guarantee of 800,000 votes from Cavite.

    The solon shared that he observed how the students who attended the rally looked like activists, leftists, or trained members of the National Democratic Front.

    "Ang dami nilang mga estudyante, mukhang mga aktibista… Kaliwa, mga trained ng NDF… May dalang mga bandera pero pink,” he said.

    Earlier, Robredo already reacted to the endorsement of Remullas to her rival Marcos. She said she's unfazed with the statements and believes her supporters will let her win in Cavite. In the 2016 vice presidential election, Marcos won against Robredo in Cavite.
