BARCELONA, 4 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The first secretary of the PSC, Salvador Illa, has warned that "Catalonia is not prepared for a drought" and has assured that there has been enough time to prepare better.
"The balance of ten years of presidencies of Mr. Mas, Mr. Puigdemont, Mr. Torra and Mr. Aragonès is that of a Catalonia that is not prepared to face a drought," said the socialist leader in an interview published this Sunday by El Periódico and collected by Europa Press.
He has stressed that he would like "greater speed" when executing investments and has committed to supporting any budget modification that must be made to alleviate the drought, as long as it is agreed with the socialist party.
Furthermore, he has asked the Government to help Catalonia in matters such as education, airport infrastructure or water management, after pointing out that the Government "is not working well."
Illa believes that Junts "has failed Catalonia" after it did not support the vote on the amnesty law this week, something that in his opinion is the way to turn the page.
On the other hand, he has stated that he understands "perfectly" that some PSC voters have reservations and reluctance regarding this law, but he remains convinced that they are doing what should be done.
