The leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha held an electoral meeting today in Elbasan, boasting of the successes of others, as he has already become accustomed. He has considered the Krraba tunnel in Elbasan as a work built by him, where in fact the truth is completely different.
“I know and I have felt your appreciation for this extraordinary work, that transformed many dimensions of the daily life of the citizens of Elbasan and all of Albania. I have come to give the message of how important is keeping promises in politics. The word given is a word kept for the Elbasan tunnel”- said Basha.
In fact, Lulzim Basha has erased from his memory that the construction of the tunnel began on April 29, 2011, at a cost of up to 101 million dollars, and was inaugurated on June 16, 2013, during the parliamentary election campaign.
So, the works for the construction of the Krraba tunnel started in 2011, when Lulzim Basha was the mayor of Tirana, while Sokol Olldashi had 4 years as Minister of Infrastructure. Even when the inauguration took place, ie the opening of the tunnel in 2013, Lulzim Basha was again the mayor of Tirana.
Based on these facts, the question naturally arises:How did a mayor build a national road?
After the scandal with 300 million euros with Nation Road, we are hearing surprises from Lulzim Basha who comes out and says that he built it.
Or even the actual Prime Minister Edi Rama, who says that he built the tunnel and the road. When in fact it was built by the government led by Sali Berisha, and when the Minister of Infrastructure was Sokol Olldashi, who had the direct responsibility for that investment. This is not the first time that Lulzim Basha is caught lying, and boasting about the work of others./ CNA.al
