Agriculture Minister Carlos Casamiquela and Federal Planning chief Julio De Vido rebuffed the criticism of the head of the Argentine Rural Society (SRA), Luis Etchevehere, who accused the government of being “ignorant and arrogant”.

Casamiquela described Etchevehere’s remarks as “incomplete to say the least". “I do not know if that biased and incomplete perspective is caused by ignorance or convenience, but I do know that any responsible debate is born out of an objective analysis, without distortions,” he added.

Making reference to Etchevehere’s remarks about the years that the president and her late husband Néstor Kirchner were in office being the “preyed-upon decade,” Casamiquela said “the accomplishments achieved in the agricultural sector were useful to overcome the country’s deepest economic and social crisis”.

Federal Planning chief Julio De Vido in turn bashed the SRA leader, accusing him of being an “accomplice” of the “sellout” of the State assets in the 90s.

“The truly preyed-upon decade was the neoliberal one, when the State’s assets were sold with the complicity and applause of the Argentina National Rural Society,” De Vido stated.
