The Member of Parliament SYRIZA PS. Π.Ε. Kozani Mr.. Calliope Vetta, on the occasion of the latest developments in the livestock sector, he stated:
"The agricultural and livestock world is in a constant state of turmoil lately. Protests are taking place all over Greece to protest the delays, cuts and opacity in subsidies.
The same uncertainty is presented in P.E.. Kozani: The olive growers of Imera, the bean growers, the breeders, the potato growers, the runners-up of the Improvement Plans, the "cut" from the aid that was given casually as an advance payment in the previous days, complain about the confusion brought about by the current government in such a short time.
In addition, the presentation of the Consultation Plan by the Ministry of Regional Development. about the New K.A.P., it was a monologue that did not give clear and reassuring answers. This is a general and timid text, without popularized specializations that can become the property of farmers and stockbreeders.
We wonder, is it?, which of the views heard from farmers and organizations present have been incorporated in the new plan of K.A.P.;
What are the answers to the government's inability to manage the European Union's resources rationally?, with a more shocking example the reduction of the amounts of the basic aid and the recent K.Y.A.. on the distribution of pastures;
This year's payment is lower by 63 million. euro, that is, it is almost missing 10% of the money credited each year to the accounts of farmers and stockbreeders while, about 70.000 farmers saw reduced or zero amounts in their booklets.
For this reason, SYRIZA PS. tabled a parliamentary question, Asking the government and the competent minister to explain their decisions to farmers and stockbreeders.
The beautified situation for the livestock that cultivates and the current political leadership of YP.A.AT., comes face to face with the harsh reality experienced by our breeders, who, across the country, they are protesting.
Greek farmers and ranchers know very well what goes into their pockets. The timely and correct payments paid by the government of SYRIZA PS. it is now a thing of the past, while the productive world of the country is led day by day to despair and economic decline due to the incompetence of the government.
People of primary production to be sure that, by changing political correlations, this descent will come to an end "
