The Minister of the Environment of the Nation, Juan Cabandieresponded this Sunday to criticism that Elisa Carrio directed against the national government for the Corrientes fires and assured that the leader of the Civic Coalition was “victim of disinformation”.
“I spoke with Elisa Carrió a few minutes ago where I told her that In Corrientes we have deployed 12 air assets, more than 130 brigade members, 5 fire trucks, vehicles, equipment, a communication truck and support mobilesCabandié wrote on Twitter.
“Obviously Elisa Carrió, with whom I have had a very affectionate and respectful relationship for several years, has also been the victim of misinformation,” he added.
The minister was referring to a publication that the leader of the Civic Coalition had made earlier, also on Twitter, accusing the administration of Alberto Fernández of “abandonment”.
“Corrientes burns and the national government, which has specific funds, makes an intentional abandonment by the withdrawal of fire hydrant planes. It is a moral and federal crime,” said Carrió’s tweet, which sent “a big hug to all Corrientes and especially to all those who are fighting the fire.”
Carrió is not the first figure in Together for Change to use the Corrientes tragedy to criticize the national government. Last Friday, the president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrichtargeted President Alberto Fernández for his activities within the Costa party and wrote on Twitter: “President, we are facing a national emergency. Stop the beach visits and send the resources needed to put out the fire.
the radical senator Alfred Cornejo, He also criticized the Head of State and the Minister of the Environment for the fire extinguishing operations. “There is an urgent need for the government to act on this given the severity of the fires in Corrientes. It’s not enough with Cabandié or with a president who does not save penalties on the coast of Buenos Aires“said the former governor of Mendoza.
