“Let’s leave the political differences and come together to face the situation. We are far from the 2010 scenario. That scenario has not been repeated since 2010. Spahia and all other mayors are invited to join, there is no political connection today”. this was the message that Defense Minister Niko Peleshi gave from Shkodra regarding the flood situation.
During his speech at the meeting of the emergency staff, Peleshi said that it is time for the Municipality of Shkodra to activate the fund for dealing with emergencies.
Niko Peleshi: From our side, we have deployed enough troops, we have also sent motor vehicles, we have helped in the evacuation of almost all the evacuated families in Shkodër. I would ask the municipalities that the fund that we have allocated from the state budget for coping with emergencies, this is the moment when that fund should be activated. If we have a family or a village unable to get food, this is the case, this is the opportunity, all of them are, the municipalities must assist. If there is a need for more support, we are available, I believe that this situation is not comparable to other years, an improvement of the situation is foreseen, a decrease in rainfall, relief and the beginning of drainage of the lands that are under water. To rescue people who are in danger and to assist them in the rescue. I have nothing more to add. There are 240 troops, plus the means, it is very flexible, it is enough to support our commander.
Also, the Minister for Relations with the Parliament Elisa Spiropali said that this is not the time to do politics as she said that she would like the mayor of Shkodra, Bardh Spahia, to be present at the staff meeting.broread
