The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has maintained in an electoral act of the 14F that “it is a crime that in Catalonia, with the climate that exists, everything is closed”, in reference to the restrictive measures adopted by the Generalitat to stop the advance of the coronavirus. Ayuso accompanied the PPC candidate for the presidency of the Generalitat, Alejandro Fernández, at the Hotel Miramar in Barcelona.
“It is a crime in Catalonia, with the climate you have, to have everything closed, to have people in their homes, to have people ruined and to say that this is the way to overcome the epidemic,” said the Madrid president in reference to the restrictions decreed by the Generalitat, generally more severe than those imposed by your government.
He has also defended that “the massive closures, without strategy, without study, are not serving any purpose”, the day in which Catalonia has exceeded half a million confirmed cases of COVID-19 accumulated since the beginning of the pandemic, when That figure is exactly 501,803, while the number of deaths from the virus rises to 19,079.
At the same time, he has warned that the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, “will do nothing until the Catalan campaign is over” to stop the contagion. “He will not do anything until these elections pass where he has put so much at stake: he has put at stake a minister who has turned his back on the greatest epidemic that Spain has suffered in a century,” he deplored in reference to the PSC candidate for the Generalitat, the former Minister of Health Salvador Illa.
According to Ayuso, it is Catalonia’s turn to “recover ‘seny’ (common sense), pride and freedom”, and has said that “Madrid and Catalonia have to continue growing together” after a few years in which there have been “many entrenched hatreds and a lot of independence corruption “.
In fact, he has assured that “many Catalans” have moved to Madrid, which “is freedom”, so that they are “left alone” and, in his words, with the aim of being “more Catalan” than they can be. in Catalunya.
