“We must underline the very great need to complete the compensatory project, which is the road network,” said the president of PASOK-KINAL
With his visit to the municipality of Mantoudi-Limni-Agia Anna from the afternoon until the evening, the president of PASOK – Movement for Change, Nikos Androulakis, completed his tour of North Evia.
Mr. Androulakis assured the mayor Giorgos Tsapourniotis and the organizations of the region, that PASOK – Movement for Change will be on the side of the affected and will continue to highlight their problems in parliament. “This place must not be forgotten. We must emphasize the very great need to complete the compensatory project, which is the road network. It should be a priority, as it will contribute decisively to any investments and the flow of travelers to North Evia in an easier way.”
Citing his hometown, the earthquake-stricken Arkalochori of Heraklion, as an example, the president of PASOK-KINAL pointed out the obstacles that often arise from the bureaucracy for those affected, as well as the difficulties in the reconstruction of houses due to the revaluation of building materials, which exceed the compensations .
“The key element is to adjust the price list based on the revaluations, so that there are other economic data and people can, despite the accuracy, rebuild their houses,” he pointed out. In the long term, the connection of the agri-food sector and tourism “can give the region a breath of development with good jobs, so that the problems created by this very big adventure with the responsibility of the central state can be stopped”.
The mayor of Mantoudi – Limni – Ag. Annas pointed out the extent of the destruction suffered by the region. “370,000 acres destroyed. Over 30 communities and settlements burned. 900 properties, of which 300 are completely damaged and have been marked red, another 300 yellow and 300 with less damage. Today as we speak, not a single one has been reconstructed” noted Mr. Tsapourniotis
