The deputy of the National Assembly for the state of Sucre, Robert Alcalá, denounced this Sunday that the “gasoline packet”, referring to the recent increase decreed by the administration of Nicolás Maduro, represents a new business for the “plugged in the regime”.
“There is no justification for an oil country like Venezuela to pay more for gasoline than in Miami. In Venezuela what is coming will be gas stations with regulated prices without fuel; while the dollarized ones will be the stations with fuel”, denounced the legislator.
After questioning that those who today increase the price of fuel were responsible for the bankruptcy of the national oil industry, the spokesman for the Democratic Action party said that the discrimination announced by those who usurp power will only lead to more ‘bachaqueo’ (black market) and more profits for those who have a monopoly on gasoline, pointing to military personnel “who stain the uniform of the National Armed Forces.”
In the virtual session of the Legislative Power held this Sunday, Alcalá described as a shameless act that the Venezuelan people have been subjected to a 78-day quarantine and now they are trying to make it more flexible just when the gasoline arrived in the country. “It’s clear that they had us locked up because they didn’t have gasoline, without caring about the dictatorship how many businesses went bankrupt and how many Venezuelans are starving in the country,” he insisted.
On the same subject, the parliamentarian made it clear that the NA must investigate who will be the beneficiaries of the business of the 200 pumps destined to the sale of gasoline in dollars, who will buy gasoline tankers, and who will be given the concessions to operate the country’s service stations.
“Those spat up in 1989, 31 years later the saliva falls on their faces, those who today increase the gasoline in a shameless way, are the same ones who in 1989 wanted to set Venezuela on fire when President Carlos Andres Perez tried to adjust 0.25 bolivars per liter of gasoline,” said the political leader.
In this sense, the deputy from Sucre State called on the Venezuelan people not to get infected with the “Stockholm Syndrome”. He made it clear that instead of celebrating the fact that they intend to distribute gasoline in a rationed and discriminatory manner, it is time to raise the voice of the people and the political leadership to continue fighting against the regime that oppresses Venezuela.
