Gullas camp blasts rumors on Eddiegul’s death.
RE-ELECTED congressman Samsam Gullas blasted at their family’s foes for spreading rumors that elected mayor Eddie Gullas of Talisay City has died due to cardiac arrest. Samsam said he believes the rumors were started by the camp of defeated Talisay City Mayor Johnny delos Reyes, who couldn’t accept that they lost by more than 40,000 votes to the returning maor.
Is this the only thing left in your bag of tricks? Desperado ra kaayo mo. Talisay has spoken and they spoke loudly, wala na sila nakauyon sa inyong liderato…Accept defeat and be humble. If my grandfather could do it when he lost by 700 votes in 2013, hopefully you can do it after losing by 40,000 votes. Samsam Gullas.
