Opposition urges government to send security forces to Córdoba
Opposition figure and elected MP Sergio Massa urged the federal government to send security forces to Córdoba to “guarantee peace and life” in a province affected by a wave of looting and violence that has claimed the life of a 20-year-old and left so far 60 injured.
“We ask the national government to send security forces to guarantee peace. I don´t like playing speculations. We have a serious situation so, again, with a lot of respect and humility, we ask the government to guarantee peace and life in Córdoba,” the head of the Renewal Front told reporters.
“People don’t know about partisan matters and political differences. Let’s try to be responsible so there is peace and life is secured. The people of Córdoba are Aregntineans too,” Massa insisted and added authorities must “search for solutions and not for those to blame on” the provincial crisis.
Another opposition figure to come to stage and question the Kirchnerite administration’s decision not to send police to Córdoba – “the conflict falls on governor (Juan Manuel) De la Sota,” Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich had said earlier-, was Buenos Aires City Mayor Mauricio Macri.
“Priorities must be settled and understand the importance of following law; those who need the presence of the state the more are those who have less,” the PRO party head told reporters.
