Mayor of the capital Ion Ceban responded sharply to PAS criticism over the consequences of yesterday’s bad weather in the capital.
During a morning town hall meeting, the mayor said that the authorities displayed “sadistic behavior, reveling in the tragedy and the problems of others,” realitatea.md reported
“We are shocked by the statements by some representatives of the current government, ministers and deputies. I have no words to comment on the public statements of these so-called dignitaries. One gets the impression that these people were very seriously traumatized as children. It’s so sadistic to rejoice when a person dies or is injured, when trees fall, cars are damaged, buildings are destroyed, roofs are torn down, etc. It’s sadistic to take pleasure when others struggle,” Ceban said.
The mayor said the bad weather has caused serious consequences across the country, but the government is in no hurry to respond.
“In a normal country today, the army, the Interior Ministry, the IGSU would be working side by side with us. This is normal, this is solidarity,” Ion Ceban said.
Earlier, Infrastructure Minister Andrei Spinu criticized Mayor Ion Ceban writing that “in Chisinau, a brief rainfall is enough to produce traffic jams, floods, roofs blown off by wind, hail, broken trees and anything else on the roads.”
“Ion, you can build kilometers of sidewalks, but just 30 minutes of rain shows how badly you run this city,” Spinu wrote on social media.
