The mayor highlights that “the grievance”With the aid of Innovation (8.8 million for Alicante and 43.5 million for Valencia and Castellón) is “one more in the long chapter of systematic forgetfulness of the Consell de Puig y Oltra, which marginalizes Alicante and does not build a health center, a school, or a social housing; only advertisements and no reality ”.

The first mayor has linked this “Cornering” of Alicante with the “historic cut” of the Tajo-Segura transfer, “Which leaves our farmers on the brink of ruin”, and with the “drastic cuts by the Generalitat in public health in full emergency due to the fifth wave of the pandemic ”. At this point, Barcala has also criticized the restrictive measures of the Consell, “which have sunk tourism with curfews, instead of seeking health solutions with vaccination and reinstatement of the 3,300 fired health workers at the beginning of summer ”.
