Prime Minister Edi Rama blames the frenetic wave of illicit constructions during the right wing governance for the current situation generated by the floods. In his address to the opposition during Thursday's parliamentary session the Premier declared that those who allowed the illicit construction in the river banks are the same that now try to blame the government for this difficult situation.
"You were the ones that allowed numerous illicit constructions near the river banks. It was you that stole the aid that were meant to be used during floods situation from the state's magazines. Former-Prime Minister Sali Berisha used to call the illicit constructions as the world's 8th miracle.
Meantime you come here today and pretend to hold the government accountable for this situation claiming that I promised that the country would not experience floods anymore. This claim does not correspond to the truth. I promised that floods in Albania would no longer be generated by the man. The series of investments made by the government prevented a catastrophic situation during the massive rainfalls of last weeks," declared PM Rama.
