Vice President Jejomar Binay on Wednesday denied that he was already campaigning when he went to Cagayan and Isabela to bring relief goods to victims of typhoon Luis, a report on GMA’s “24-Oras” said Wednesday.

He said his visit to the Cagayan Valley an act to help victims of the typhoon after he was questioned for giving out t-shirts.

“Unang-una, masama ba ‘yun? Pangalawa ‘di ba mataas ang priority nun? Biro mo naman dahil sa Signal No. 3 ‘yung dumating ang isang taga pamahalaan ay nagpapakita na mayroong caring na government,” he said.

Meanwhile, members of the United Makati Against Corruption (UMAC) picketed outside the Vice President’s office in the Coconut Palace.

The UMAC challenged Binay to face the Senate investigation on the alleged overpriced Makati Cityhall parking building.
