Twitter social network users positioned the hashtag #MirandaSinGas label on Thursday to report gas service failures in different communities of the state.
Among the denouncers was Luisa González, a resident of Los Teques, who said that “we have not been able to buy gas in Los Olivos for more than 2 months, we have to continue to buy it bachaqueado (black market) at 20 thousand bolivars and more”.
Meanwhile, from the municipality of Sucre, Zulimar Cahuao said that “in the community of #Maca #Petare we have more than 1 month waiting for the dispatch of the Gas bottles”.
Political leaders also spoke, like Carlos Ocariz, former mayor of the Sucre municipality, “hundreds of communities in Miranda spend months without gas and when it arrives, at an excessive cost. People are cooking with wood”, denounced Ocariz.
The former mayor denounced that the regime has the resources to solve this problem but does nothing. “The people suffer because of their disability. When had something like this ever been seen in Miranda? Never”, he said.
“We can’t get used to it”
The political leader showed through his Twitter account the long lines that José Félix Ribas’ neighbors in Petare must make from the early hours of the morning to try to buy a gas bottle.
“They collapsed, destroyed public services and with them the quality of life of the Venezuelan”, Ocariz blamed the usurping regime of the crisis in Miranda State.
Among the main complaints are the low frequency of distribution of the gas bottles, the long lines to access the filling stations and dispatch trucks and the high cost of all this.
