Popular Party president of the Region of Murcia, Ramón Luis Valcárcel, said that "Zapatero is prime ineptitude with young people who are paying particularly affected by the economic crisis and lack of socialist government solutions to end it. "

"A million young Spanish people already unemployed, and their unemployment rate is already above 42 percent, returning to the worst days of the socialist governments of Gonzalez," which in his view "is disturbing and insulting by the absence interest policy by the Government of the Nation.

It seems only concerned entangled in controversies that do not matter, "he added.

At the First Meeting of Presidents of New Generations of the Region of Murcia, which have met the 45 local presidents NNGG this morning in San Pedro del Pinatar, Ramón Luis Valcárcel has noted that "while the National Government has stalled the necessary labor reform because it is unable to reach agreement in the Region of Murcia we strive to achieve agreements with unions and employers. "

For its part, the regional president of New Generations, Víctor Manuel Martínez, has criticized the Socialist government "now also wants to cut aid to the procurement of OPV" in a sample of the anti-social policies of the Zapatero government, something that however, "not surprising, since in the region still expect the government delegate this year will clarify whether or not made for housing in the Region of Murcia."

Martinez explained that in 2009 more than 1,300 homes classified as protected by the regional government were not built because of lack of funding that would ensure the central government through the Ministry of Housing "something that in the current crisis , is unforgivable, because it means fewer opportunities for access to housing and less employment derived from the construction of new buildings, "he pointed responsible for NNGG.

In this sense, Martinez lamented that "once again the Socialist Party promises something and then forget, in this case, the 183 million euros in loans for construction of OPV as the delegate of the Government and Housing Minister herself said they would come the Region of Murcia, when the truth is we have not known more than headlines.

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Infrastructure Secretary PSRM asks if you fear that your boss lets you off the lists because they did not mention the Region during his speech in Congress, and if interested in Galicia

Infrastructure Secretary PSRM, Cecilio Hernandez, responded to the statements of people's deputy, Andres Ayala, recommending that "look in the mirror of PP de Murcia, to see real slides budgets, lack of investment, small and unpaid Murcia medium road closure. And all this due to years of drought that the Government has set Valcárcel public works. "

Cecilio Hernández Ayala believes that it should not forget the hundreds of millions of euros that has failed to invest the PP government of Murcia, considering that these works would affect small and medium entrepreneurs in the public works and the whole of Murcia citizens of the region, given that the road network that covers the map of the region is the sole responsibility of the regional government.

The worst roads

He recalled that as a result, according to the latest study of the Spanish Road Association, are the autonomous region with the worst roads.

"It is ironic and even sarcastic Mr. Ayala is created the words he says when he explains that having kept pace with the PP in 2004 imposed on public works, would be much better. For the reality is that in 8 years Aznar's government left us a work train had to be hired to make more modifications to some famous face. "

He added that did not leave us "even a single project approved by highways and railways to make the relevant investment."

Hence, it is "satire this recall, compared to almost 3,000 million euros that the government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has put on the Region of Murcia and including momentary delays and possible cuts will make the railroad a reality in 2014 with the arrival of the AVE, and that in 2012, and hybrid machines Camarillas Alternative, Alternative Camarillas stress, the Madrid Murcia we can go three hours in the line of Cieza, the same as the president Valcárcel Helmets and wiped off the map in the 2001 agreement, "he said.

He noted that the highway from Valencia in the interior will be fully realized with the implementation of the Special Infrastructure Plan with public-private funding, the Ministry will present, while the integration of the railway in Cartagena and Murcia advance within the deadlines.

Empty propaganda

"Tearing his hair out because the road Reguerón have to wait for good times to criticize the straw in the eye of the Socialists, with the PP beam failures in the Coastal North and South of Murcia, Lorca-motorways Caravaca, Jumilla and Yecla-Santomera, who with great fanfare, the Government of Valcárcel, champion of the empty propaganda, shows quite often. "

For the executive socialist employment in Murcia and Murcia welfare depend largely on what the Government Valcárcel with public investment in infrastructure.

"To date, much cellophane but little substance and this is against the citizens of all counties in the region and, especially, small and medium enterprises in public works, although their representatives in business organizations not reporting it, is to cap the affair of the PP government. "

Finally, Mr. Ayala reminded that the appearance of the Minister of Development, on 22 July, when he had to defend the position of PP and Murcia, did not mention the name of Murcia itself in no time and was very interested what the minister was going to do in Galicia.

To what was asked "whether it is feared that his boss Mr Rajoy will leave out of future lists. The deputy of Murcia, the PP, which therefore fills her mouth to defend the interests of the region, did not raise not a single question to the minister to resolve the problems now reporting. "
