Student-activists nearly mobbed Budget Secretary Florencio Abad at the University of the Philippines in Diliman after speaking at a forum at the School of Economics on Wednesday night, GMA News TV’s State of the Nation has reported.

The report said the students, who picketed the venue, even chased Abad until he reached his car.

The activists alleged that Abad defended the Aquino administration’s Disbursement Acceleration Program during the forum.

“I don’t that’s unusual at UP,” Abad said in a statement after the incident.

“They were violent and meant to harm but nothing serious,” he added.

The Supreme Court in July declared the DAP partially unconstitutional. —NB, GMA News
