The galloping destruction of the productive apparatus of the agricultural sector in Venezuela, caused by the terrible economic policies implemented by the usurping Executive, together with the precariousness of public services has brought as a consequence a considerable decrease in the production of agricultural products, generating food shortages, which the Venezuelan people suffer today, warned the deputy to the National Assembly, Ezequiel Pérez Roa.
“The agricultural sector is one of the most affected because it does not have electric power or gasoline, which are priority resources in agricultural activities,” said Perez. For that reason, he called on the public to exercise their right to peaceful protest, as provided for in Article 68 of the Constitution, to express their disagreement with the poor public services in the country.
The congressman denounced that there are municipalities in the states of Táchira, Apure, Zulia and Barinas that have suffered blackouts for more than 15 hours daily. “Electricity is one of the problems that most affects all the states, we cannot use power plants because we cannot get fuel, the hospitals do not have light (electrical power), it is chaos,” he said.
On the other hand, the parliamentarian stressed that the only legitimate National Assembly in Venezuela is headed by leader Juan Guaidó, who has “the courage and determination” to encourage Venezuelans to recover the nation and face the criminal dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro, at the same time, he assured that the democratic deputies “continue working for Venezuela.”
He also repudiated that the more than 19 dissident deputies from the opposition bribed through “Operation Scorpion” have allied themselves with the PSUV, and likewise, are trying to oppose the “extraordinary and courageous” work of the acting and legitimate President of the NA, Juan Guaidó.
“The traitorous deputies have turned their backs on the Venezuelan citizens who placed their trust in them by electing them as their representatives to the national parliament and on those who are suffering, along with all the Venezuelan people, the hardships caused by the depressing policies of this dictatorship,” he said.
