Sem luz

Sylvia Colombo

Um dos principais cartões-postais de Buenos Aires, o Obelisco da avenida 9 de Julio, ficou sem luz ontem. Além do monumento, sete praças, fontes e alguns edifícios públicos ficaram às escuras. A razão foi a falta de pagamento da prefeitura das contas de luz das companhias Edesur e Edenor.

No começo da noite, havia curiosos caminhando na região do Obelisco e apontando para cima. Andar de carro pela avenida causava uma sensação de estranhamento pois era como se o monumento, com o qual todos nos acostumamos, tivesse desaparecido.

As empresas decidiram promover o corte porque a prefeitura deve mais de 60 milhões de pesos às duas juntas. O rombo não se deve à falta de planejamento do orçamento mas sim ao fato de o governo federal ter ordenado a retirada dos subsídios que faziam com que o suprimento de energia fosse mais barato a todos os clientes.

O episódio serviu para alimentar o embate entre a presidente Cristina Kirchner e o chefe de governo portenho, Mauricio Macri. Membros de ambos os governos saíram à público para defender a sua esfera.

Diego Santilli, ministro de Ambiente e Espaço Público da capital, disse que havia uma espécie de perseguição na decisão das duas empresas. “O governo da cidade se sentiu discriminado por ser a única província em ter um novo cálculo tarifário forte.” Já o ministro do Planejamento do governo nacional, Julio De Vido, disse que os cortes simplesmente respondiam ao fato de Macri não ter pagado a conta.

Enquanto as duas forças disputam a queda-de-braço, portenhos e turistas, que lotam a cidade nessa época do ano, caminham na escuridão.

  3. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact there are plenty of common myths regarding the banking institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosure. One misconception in particular is the fact the bank desires your house. The financial institution wants your money, not your own home. They want the money they lent you with interest. Averting the bank will undoubtedly draw the foreclosed summary. Thanks for your posting.
