Senator Cynthia Villar uttered an expletive in dismay during a Senate hearing on the National Tobacco Administration’s (NTA) proposed 2022 budget Friday (October 22).
Villar questioned some items in the NTA’s proposed budget, such as the “Production technical marketing assistance.”
“P*tang i*a, puro nakaw ‘to,” the senator exclaimed.
NTA officials denied the allegation, but Villar said she knows better.
“Tigilan niyo na ko sa mga technical assistance na ‘yan, alam naman natin na drama lang yan ng tao,” she added. “Naku naman. Diyos ko. Terible!” she said.
