Όπως χαρακτηριστικά τόνισε: "In the name of the pandemic, you insist on punishing music with irrationality, while the only thing you constantly refer to as a support measure is the Special Purpose Allowance for those who registered in the Register in January of 2021, as if the artistic production of the country stopped then. As if the country stopped producing artistic potential a year ago. As if there are no new artists, new needs, new conditions, you persistently pursue an ineffective policy that constantly puts the people of culture on the street "
