MANILA, Philippines— Senator Panfilo Lacson has a piece of advice for Capiz 2nd District Rep. Fredenil Castro: “Take some memory enhancement pills.”

It was Castro, who earlier demanded an apology from the senator over the latter’s remarks on the alleged aborted plan to give congressmen huge allocations in the 2020 national budget.


But Lacson rejected Castro’s call for an apology.

In a Twitter post on Thursday, the senator even reminded  Castro about the P95 billion “insertions” in the 2019 budget that were later vetoed by President Rodrigo Duterte.

“No pork last year? Cong. Castro should take some memory enhancement pills,” Lacson said.

“He forgets that he and his co-conspirators in the House had illegally inserted P95B in the 2019 national budget which the President vetoed as recommended by the Senate,” he further said.  /muf
