Nakakapuyat ka! Pulong blasts DOT’s Puyat: 'Kailangan malaman ng mga tao ang tunay niyang karakter!'

Congressman Pulong Duterte and Tourism Secretary Berna Puyat

Manila, Philippines – In a plenary session in the House of Representatives on Thursday, Deputy Speaker and Davao City 1st district Cong. Paolo Duterte stunned his colleagues after he lambasted Tourism Sec. Bernadette Romulo Puyat.
Cong. Duterte announced that he wanted to participate in the interpellation of the DOT’s budget last September 17, "to seek clarification on certain issues and concerns regarding what is happening now in that department under the leadership of Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat.”

The plenary deliberations on the 2020 budget of the housing agencies were abruptly suspended to allow Deputy Speaker Paolo Duterte make a manifestation on the budget of the Department of Tourism (DOT).

According to President Duterte’s eldest son, it has come to his attention that there “have been several complaints in the management style of Sec. Romulo Puyat in relations to the approval of contracts and projects in her department.”

“However as part of the pre-plenary conference between agencies of the executive departments and the House of Representatives, our honorable speaker deemed it prudent that these issues be threshed out directly with Secretary Romulo Puyat hence following the established procedure in the House I sat down with the Speaker and Secretary Romulo Puyat to discuss my concerns regarding her department.”

“I wanted to clarify these issues because I believe it is my right and sworn duty as a member of this esteemed chamber to ask question and thus interpellate any of my fellow legislator on the floor,” he added.

"I would be remiss of my duty as a representative of the people of Davao City’s 1st district if I turn a deaf ear to the complaints and grievances that have reached my office regarding the Department of Tourism,” Duterte said.

He added that instead of resolving the issues after he discussed his complaints with the cabinet official, it ended in an unpleasant way.

“Ang buong akala ko ay maganda ang ikakabunga ng aming pag-uusap yun pala ay mauuwi lang sa sumbungan at mga maling parating laban sa akin at alam niyo na esteemeed colleagues kung kanino,” Duterte said

The former Davao city vice mayor added that it’s about the public should know the true character of Sec. Puyat.    

“Ako po ay naniniwala na dapat po ipabatid natin sa lahat ang mga pangyayaring ito ng sa gayon ay malaman ng ating mga kababayan ang tunay niyang karakter at pag-uugali,” said Duterte.
