The photo of Fabiola Yañez’s birthday in Olivos, with Alberto Fernández and a group of friends without distancing or chinstraps in the middle of the strict quarantine, continues to generate controversy and the former piquetero leader Luis D’Elía insisted on his criticism and condemned the celebration so much like the President’s apology: “He looked angry with others, when he must be mad at himself“.
“It was a shit on the birthday, the photo was a shit and the first explanation was a shit, saying that it was Fabiola’s fault, “began D’Elía in dialogue with Radio with you.
Alberto Fernández had spoken about the photos last Friday in a ceremony, where he ended up blaming the First Lady for the scandalous meeting. “On July 14, my dear Fabiola’s birthday, she called a meeting with her friends and a toast that shouldn’t have been done, which I definitely realize shouldn’t have. And I’m sorry that it happened. Clearly I regret it, “he had said.
This Monday he spoke again about the subject, but this time he raised the tone of his speech. Although he apologized, he sought to confront the opposition in the middle of the campaign: “They are not going to make me fall for the mistake I made,” he said.
“The only one responsible is me, I take charge, I show my face and I put myself in front of all this. And if anyone thinks that they are going to make me fall for a mistake I made, know it: they strengthen me, they generate stronger convictions, “he said in an act in La Matanza, with a more energetic tone.
Regarding this new release from the President, D’Elía said: “Yesterday he was seen to be angry with others, when he should have been angry with himself.”
However, he also directed his criticism at the opposition leaders who pointed out the failure of the President and the First Lady: “The guys who put us in debt and left us four terrible years, a true economic pandemic with criminal responsibilities, those do not have moral authority to lift the finger, the little finger to put it away “.
For D’Elía, one of the President’s biggest failings resides in the lack of example: “When I dictate a rule, the first one to comply with it has to be me, which in this case is Alberto Fernández. The President has to lead by example“.
And he added: “The conclusion of this episode has to be that he dictates a rule is the first to set an example.”
Part of D’Elía’s sadness in the face of the controversial photo resides in the death of her mother on May 10, 2020: “When I saw the photo it gave me a lot of anger because I I lost my mother who for 20 days in agony as a political prisoner did not let me go see her, by protocol we could not do the wake. My mother’s grandchildren couldn’t fire her. “
The former piquetero leader then highlighted the government’s initiative after the “March of the Stones”: “It seems to me a nice initiative of the government to make a monument with the stones that were taken to the march yesterday.”
It is not the first time that the leader attacks the president for the celebrations in Olivos. As soon as the image of Yañez’s birthday was known, D’Elía was outraged on his social networks and said that “this time the opposition is right.” In addition, he again referred to his mother’s agony and even uploaded a photo of her while she was hospitalized.
D’Elía is serving house arrest in the cause for the occupation of the 24th police station in La Boca after the murder of a rank-and-file FTV militant, Martín ‘Oso’ Cisneros, by a drug dealer on whom neighbors and militants The neighborhood historically denounced that it enjoyed protection.
