VP Binay Gives Cash to Nirvana Victims’ Families, and also Rosary with Letter ‘B’?

Biinay rosary

Vice President Jejomar Binay visited the families of the victims of the sunken ferry boat, MB Kim Nirvana in Ormoc City, Leyte this Sunday, July 5, 2015. But besides paying respect for the dead, he also gave a ‘small amount’ of cash assistance to them, as well as rosaries with an alleged letter ‘B’ on it. But what does ‘B’ means?

“Kami ay nagpapaabot ng dasal, nakikisalamuha sa pamilya ng mga namatay. Meron po ako. Binigyan ko po ng konting financial [assistance] ito. May nabigyan ako ng iilang rosaryo,” VP Binay told reporters, emphasizing that there is no politics involved in his visit. He was seen talking to families of the victims in St. Peter Memorial Chapel.

(We extended prayers, talked to the families of the victims. I also gave small financial assistance, and rosaries to some as well.)

As of posting, the total death toll in the incident is 61. MB Kim Nirvana had 173 passengers and 16 crew members when it left Ormoc on Thursday, July 2. Shortly after the port, the ferry boat overturned in rough waters. A thorough investigation is now going on, but human error and overloading are being considered as possible reasons.

Meanwhile, many netizens criticized VP Binay for visiting Ormoc. Although he claims he was there to help, people are doubting his real purpose, particularly because of the alleged ‘B’ at the middle of the cross of each rosary he gave away. Apparently, this is the same ‘Binay rosary’ he allegedly distributed to during the Papal visit last January.

Last March, a Facebook user named Kath Lin shared a photo of her with VP Binay, along with a photo of her arm wearing a rosary bracelet with a letter ‘B.’ It was not known why the 2016 presidentiable is doing in that particular occasion. Nevertheless, netizens slam the vice president and made their own speculations on what the letter ‘B’ means.

Many netizens said the ‘B’ stands for Binay, and that the controversial vice president is using various occasions for campaigning early as a presidential candidate in 2016. But for solid Binay haters, the ‘B’ can also mean ‘Black’, ‘Baluga’, ‘Bastos’, ‘Bitayin’, ‘Bobotante’, among others. As of posting, VP Binay has not yet commented on this issue.
