“It didn’t happen in Madrid, it happened in a place governed by you.” The plenary session of the Madrid Assembly has experienced an episode this Thursday in which the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant has been used as a political argument more than 30 years later. The event has ended up capitalizing on a debate that, initially, tried to answer the doubts generated as a result of the management of the coronavirus pandemic by the executive chaired by Isabel Díaz Ayuso.
The exchange started when the spokesperson for Más Madrid in the Assembly, Pablo Gómez Perpinyá, referred to the “incompetence” of the government to manage the COVID-19 crisis in the region and added that the decisions of the regional government have ended for turning “the Puerta del Sol into the Chernobyl of Europe”.
Perpinyá has compared the “negligence” with which the Chernobyl nuclear accident was managed with the actions of the Madrid government, to which Ayuso has responded by accusing “communism” and pointing directly to Más Madrid. “Chernobyl did not happen in the Community of Madrid, it happened in a place governed by you,” the president assured in the face of the stupor of the rest of the opposition.
Along these lines, he has charged the deputies of Más Madrid for encouraging the discourse of the “rich and the poor” when most of the parliamentarians, he continued, are “father’s sons.”
Some users on the social network Twitter joked with sarcasm about Ayuso’s conclusions and satirized the bizarre accusation.
