Prime Minister Edi Rama published yesterday some photos from the construction site on the Qukës-Qafë Plloçë axis, for which he states that it was another road left unfinished by previous government, especially after 7 years that he has gone 20 times, and takes the same photos.
Even turtle would have gone all the way with Rama’s rhythm for its construction. “The Qukës-Qafë Plloçë construction site, on another road left unfinished, where the works in tunnels 1, 2 and in the tunnel 3 of the emergency exit, have already been completed.
After a long odyssey of remaking the project from the beginning of the road left unfinished and re-arranging the financial agreements, the works for the construction of the structures, and the filling of the route continue intensively” wrote the head of the government in FB.
In fact, Rama lies again shamefully and abusively the Albanians. It was not a road left unfinished, but it is a road which had a clear project, and its signed funding. Is Edi Rama that has procrastinated this project, because he did not want it to be built.
The tender had to take place in September 2013, and it was Edi Rama who wanted to cancel this investment. He made the tender himself, he had the project and financing ready, but he has not been able to finish it for 7 years, because Edi Rama hates that road. Not because we want to, but because of the facts speak for themselves.
We recall here that on time Minister Edmond Haxhinasto sent a letter to the Islamic Bank and the Saudi Development Fund, requesting that this investment to be transferred in to a kredit one. The road that has been left neglected for seven years, not by Berisha’s government, not by the former Democratic Party government, but by Edi Rama.
Because Ridvan Bode, Sokol Olldashi and Sali Berisha handed over the power in September 2013, just when this road was about to begin. And they left the loan, the project, Rama ramained just to sign the tender.
But Rama postponed this tender, because he asked to cancel of the investment, as he failed due to a penalty of tens of millions of euros. It is his government that has made the tender, and it is government of Edi Rama that has announced the winner.
It is government of Edi Rama that has made the tender with the financing, and the project that was ready. Rama says the road was neglected. Yes, this is true. But guilty for this are Edi Rama, his ministers Edmond Haxhinasto and Damian Gjiknuri, not to mention that the new Minister of Infrastructure, Belinda Balluku, is also responsible for these almost two years.
The tunnels that Rama showed yesterday, were completed many years ago, and nothing has happened to them yet. They have simply been painted, or it has casted chippings on their tracks.
Edi Rama is lying publicly. He has been himself to the construction site several times. He said once that the road would ended in 2015, in 2016 and then in 2017. Now we are in 2020, and Edi Rama has lied four times about this road.
Even if it were a road without a project and had started incorrectly, why did Edi Rama conduct the tender without having a project? Second, how many years did it take Edi Rama to make the project of a road bed? Seven years to do or change a project as well as funding, and the road doesn’t end, nor is it known when it will end.
Did the ministry needs seven years to make funding adjustments or a new project? On the other hand, Edi Rama says that the financing contract was reaffirmed. It’s not true, it’s a pure lie. The entire road loan has been signed since 2013, but Edi Rama wanted to cancel it and his thieving ministers increased the road costs.
And were they who neglected the project. There are the responsible institutions, such as ARRSH and the Ministry of Infrastructure that abandoned the contruction in time to this road. Rama has signed the increase of costs, same as with the Tirana-Elbasan road.
Costs that increase due to abandonment of investment for several years. But, there is another scandal, which Edi Rama does not say and keeps hidden. But, as the truth of the Qukës-Qafë Plloçë road emerges, he reacts shamefully.
Why does the third lot have no funding?
Rama shows us two tunnels and an emergency tunnel, as a miracle in seven years of his government. But how could this road be advertised to have started from zero, and should have been completed three times so far. Is Sali Berisha still to blame after 7 years in power?
The Nation Road, with 2 tunnels of 6 km. The Tirana-Elbasan road, with 2 tunnels of 2.46 km, the yesterday government has build at a lower cost, today Rama and his people are doubling the costs.
Qukës Qafë-Plloça has several small tunnels, and it is a road that had funding, and the project was ready. Maybe he wanted some small changes, but still 7 years needed for them? Did Edi Rama leave the third lot without funding? This road was never finished, and Edi Rama wants to catch the eye of Albanians with his unbridled propaganda, as if what he is doing on the road Qukës-Qafë Plloçë.
Edi Rama made a hole in the water
And if the government’s successes are these roads, it’s a shame. An entire government in seven years cannot complete a 40-kilometer road, with secured funding and a ready-made project. Qukës-Qafë Plloça is the road neglected by Edi Rama, Renaissance, his ministers, and today, before showing some tunnels painted or with casting gravel, he must apologize to the residents of the Korça region.
Qukës-Qafë Plloça is not the success, but the most spectacular failure of Edi Rama and Renaissance in infrastructure. For seven years, not even 40 km of road can be completed. Qukës-Qafë Plloça is the road forgotten by Edi Rama, the responsibile is the prime minister, and his propaganda in this case has no value./ CNA.al
