President Alberto Fernandez criticized the Head of Government of the City of Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, for rejecting the call to agree on the funds that the national government must transfer to the Buenos Aires administration for the maintenance of the local police. The Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Economy had made the call on Thursday and Saturday the mayor of the PRO rejected it.
“Exaggerate. It unnecessarily creates a conflict where there shouldn’t be. It should be generous. The rest of the provinces are not demanding that they return what was too much in all these years, but that they accept a clean slate, and put things in order from now on “, raised in dialogue with radio AM 750.
Fernández said that he is going to communicate with Rodríguez Larreta to “insist” on reaching an agreement because “things are not done as you please, but as the law requires.” “We want to give them the resources to pay for security because that is what the National Constitution establishes, but to do so as the law requires,” he stressed.
“There was never a purpose to hurt someone or to ruin Rodríguez Larreta’s government or to complicate the people of Buenos Aires. What is done is to put in order something that we all know was done wrong, “said the Head of State, who added:” It is an act of little intellectual honesty to put it another way.
The President repeated again that the City of Buenos Aires “is the richest in Argentina and the one with the most resources” and stressed that the objective of his government is “to repair the manifest irregularities”, in reference to the funds that the government of Mauricio Macri as a co-participation.
“They gave funds, through a decree, to a district, privileging it with a false argument that it was to pay for the security that was transferred to them from the national government. So false is this argument that the Head of Government himself gave press conferences saying that they were not going to be able to make places or schools because we were taking resources from them. The resources were not for that but for security”, Indicated the president.
Fernández insisted with the idea that the withdrawal of co-participation funds “is not against anyone nor is it because the PRO governs, Let’s change or whatever it is called.” “What we have decided is to state that there were resources that, arbitrarily, were ordered by the Macri government in the power of Rodríguez Larreta. Resources that went to the detriment of other provinces. That is not fair and must be corrected ”.
“The provinces do not reproach them for returning what was wrong. It was badly done from day one. Nobody claims that from him. Only from here on, let’s change. How ironic. Let’s change … “, said the President, making a play on words with the name of the opposition political space.
