Rodríguez Larreta joined the criticism of price controls: he accused the Government of "sending truckers to pat around" instead of dealing with inflation


The Buenos Aires head of government maintained that the request of the Secretary of Commerce to the union led by Pablo Moyano is "illegal" and "it is useless."

Horacio Rodríguez Larreta

joined the voices that were raised against the decision of the Secretary of Commerce to

add the Truckers union to the control of the Fair Prices program

with a direct criticism of the measure, describing it as illegal.

"The national government sends

the Truckers union and militants from Barrios de Pie to patrol

distribution centers to 'control prices,'" Rodríguez Larreta started a thread on his personal Twitter account.

In addition, he referred to the decision as "illegal, that

it is useless

and that it is the opposite of what we Argentines need."

Matias Tombolini had already confirmed on Twitter that from the Secretariat he commands they asked the Moyano union to collaborate with verification of compliance with the program in the distribution centers of large supermarkets.

And this Monday, Pablo Moyano confirmed that he spoke with the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, and with Tombolini, and that they "asked for a collaboration to go to the distribution centers of the large supermarkets", but ruled out that it is the workers who control.

"The ones who control are the inspectors from the Secretary of Commerce, our boys take care of them and show them the merchandise they carry. They are the ones who control, inspect or fine," said the union leader.

For the head of the Buenos Aires Government, the presence of truckers in the distribution centers "

is illegal

because the State cannot use the unions or the piqueteros to control. They have nothing to do there, if the State wants to control something

it has to take care of himself,

he cannot delegate that task".

"But, in addition, it is useless," he insisted.

"I don't know how many times they will try to

push to control prices

before they are convinced that it doesn't work," he assured, before making his recipe clear: "Inflation is resolved with

planned measures

that attack the problem."

For the end, he returned to the idea of ​​the intimidation that the Government would be trying to impose among businessmen and merchants.

"Those who work and produce need to get their paws off their chests and let them work, not to send mobs to squeeze them by putting Argentines against Argentines. That the government dedicate itself to governing and let Argentines work," he concluded.
