Muntinlupa City Rep. Ruffy Biazon has taken a jab at broadcaster Erwin Tulfo for insulting Social Welfare Secretary Rolando Bautista for failing to answer his phone call on a radio show.

In a tweet posted Saturday, Biazon said he doesn’t use his status as a lawmaker to be prioritized by Cabinet officials.

“I’ve also experienced not being attended to right away by cabinet officials but I always keep in mind they have other jobs to do, even if my purpose is also official,” he said.

“I never felt that I’m entitled to extraordinary attention…even if I’m a member of Congress,” Biazon added.

Tulfo drew flak for cursing at and insulting Bautista because he didn’t answer his phone for the broadcaster’s radio show over the state-run dzRB.

Bautista told reporters in a Viber chat group that he was unable to take Tulfo’s call because he was talking to an ambassador at that time.

Tulfo acknowledged he might have went overboard in insulting Bautista, but insisted the Cabinet official was still wrong in snubbing his phone call.
