'We will call those who are getting things wrong'
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner headed yesterday a rally in the southern province of Santa Cruz to mark the 137th anniversary of the Lago Argentino baptism. “We will call together those who are getting things wrong so that they stop getting things wrong,” CFK warned as she came publicly along with Santa Cruz governor Daniel Peralta for the first time in a year following a war-of-words period between the two politicians.
“We will continue to keep working with lot of strength for a fairer and more equitable Argentina. We will call together those who are getting things wrong so that they stop making mistakes because when they do they do a lot of harm to Argentineans,” the president said in the touristic city of El Calafate where the event took place.
“We have gone through so many bad times that we deserve from those who have had the luck and support of our policies to have more than what they had, not generosity but simply intelligence to see all the possibilities the country has,” Fernández de Kirchner insisted following weeks of economic ups and downs that ended with a devaluation of Argentina’s peso currency and further government efforts to stem inflation. The Kirchnerite administration indeed yesterday fined five supermarkets for a total of 3.51 million pesos for failing to abide be a price agreement the government set along with retailers nationwide and that involves the control of prices of1 94 basic goods.
“For them to continue growing,” CFK added, “and having more, which in the end is what they always care about, all Argentineans have to keep making progress every day a little bit more.”
During the rally in the south of Argentina, Ms. Fernández also officially inaugurated the electrical interconnection and works for the city of El Calafate.
