Presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos can win 900,000 votes in the province of Cavite, province representative Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla claimed Monday as he trends on Twitter for allegations against the Robredo grand rally.

Remulla, whose brother, Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla promised Marcos Jr. 800,000 votes from the province, said that the only son and namesake of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos would get almost a million votes from the province based on surveys.

"Puwede pa umabot ng 900,000 votes ang itatalo ni Leni kay BBM sa Cavite," he told ANC.

When asked where he got his data, he said Marcos Jr. was "consistent" in surveys "from every organizations", getting 40% to 47% voter preference. 

Cavite, second to Cebu as the most vote-rich province, has 2,302,353 voters, according to Comelec. If Remulla's claims come to fruition and Marcos Jr. wins at least 40% of the Caviteno vote, he would get at least 920,000.

The elder Remulla topped Twitter trends with #BoyingSinungaling garnering more than 40,000 tweets as of 5 p.m. Monday for saying that the 47,000-strong crowd at Vice President Leni Robredo's Friday rally in General Trias was mostly "bayaran" (paid to attend) for P500 each, and were "hakot" (loaded into a vehicle to attend the rally).

The hashtag #800KMinusOne was trending over the weekend as some Caviteño supporters or Robredo distanced themselves from Jonvic's promise to deliver votes for Marcos Jr.

Remulla also claimed some leftist organizations were involved, basing it on their "pink uniforms" and citing intelligence reports.

"Naging governor ako ng Cavite. Alam ko ang galawan ng tao sa amin kaya taken at face value, I do not have reason to lie. Nakita ko ang mobilization ng tao, alam mo ang kilos ng hakot, alam mo ang kilos ng bayaran," he said.

"I saw it with my own eyes. People alighting from the jeep, young students, may mga manufactured flags sila, may banderang pink... Eto maliwanag hinakot talaga at may staging area at ito ay isang style talaga ng left-leaning organizations."

Remulla also said some 5,000 to 6,000 individuals in the Cavite rally for Robredo were "hakot" by the vice president herself.

"Marami talaga nagpupunta na 'di taga-Cavite, minsan mas marami pa nga 'yun kaysa sa mga taga-Cavite pero ang tinutukoy nila, magba-bandwagon sila, sinasabi nila puro Caviteno 'yun, hindi po totoo 'yun."

The group Lawyers for Leni-Cavite chapter denied the allegations, saying the individuals attended the event voluntarily.

"Ang pagdalo dito ay kusang-loob at boluntaryong ginagawa bunsod ng nagkakaisang layunin na magkaroon ng pagbabago para sa mabuting pamamahala sa ating bansa. Ang prinsipyo at paniniwala ng mga tagasuporta sa katapatan, husay, at integridad ni VP Leni ay hindi kailanman mabibili o mababayaran ng kahit sinuman," it said in a statement released Monday.

Robredo's People Council-Cavite also spoke against allegations.

"Hindi kailangan may bayad, ang mga Caviteno ay tapat at may dignidad," it said.
