Salvini on Prime Minister Meloni: "The more they try to divide us, the more they strengthen us". And on the tax cut: "A fool who says it's not a priority"
There is no friction with Giorgia Meloni, not even after the conspicuous absence of Northern League ministers during the premier's communications to the Chamber. This is guaranteed by Matteo Salvini who this morning opened the work of the Lega political training school in Milan, a stone's throw from Porta Venezia. "The more they try to distance us, the more they unite us," said the deputy prime minister and infrastructure minister. «Giorgia has done and is doing a great job: every day we talk, we discuss and share paths and ideas. Meloni - he added - goes to Europe and looks after the interests of the country »while « there are some Italians who go to Europe to look after the interests of others »said the leader of the League.
The priorities of the secretary of the Carroccio, however, are all homegrown and concern the works to be unlocked: "Let's help the Italy of the yeses, the Italy that is not afraid to confront anyone", he said. "I hope to finish my term leaving a better country thanks to the teamwork of the League and the government," he specified. Among the works to which he alludes is the bridge over the Strait, the feasibility of which was sanctioned by the decree approved in the CDM only a few days ago. «It costs like a year of basic income. I believe that money is better used for something that remains, which creates mobility, speed and above all creates environmental savings", he explained. "It alone does not save the country", he added, also explaining that the government is investing "11 billion euros to speed up the railway between Palermo and Messina and other billions for the one between Salerno and Reggio Calabria».
As for the tax cut, however, he comments: «According to some, it is not a priority. It is for me, for the League and for the government. That someone is an idiot, because he evidently has 10 million euros in his pocket ». Salvini also ventured a convinced prediction on the outcome of the Friuli Venezia Giulia regional vote next week: «At a rough guess, the (outgoing, ed) governor of the Lega Massimiliano Fedriga will win with at least double the votes of the left-wing competitor ( Massimo Moretuzzo ed)».
