With heavy ammunition, CFK confirms sending of shared-revenue funds to BA province
After the numerous claims made by different provinces urged for the national government’s shared-revenue fundings, and mainly the ones coming from the BA Province Governor Daniel Scioli, who stated that there could be problems with the mid-year bonus payments for public workers as far as delay with the so called co-participation funds continue, the President Crisitina Fernández de Kirchner responded with heavy ammunition by saying that “Conspiracy operations should stop.”
Likewise, the Head of State remarked that every single financial help requirement made by the different provinces will be studied, and remembered that last year the national government "transferred 136.3 billion pesos to the province of Buenos Aires, which represented 130 percent of the provincial yearly budget."
"This President will not allow any conspiracy or lobby operations against her”, Fernández de Kirchner said in what many considered a direct dart to Scioli, who has publicly declared his presidential hopes for 2015.
“We are going to keep helping all provinces, but governors must learn to manage the funds they receive with the same responsibility this President does.”
