Gamarra asks Puente to serve La Rioja in infrastructure

Villamediana de Iregua (La Rioja) (EFE).- The general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, asked this Wednesday the Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility, Óscar Puente, to “stop tweeting” and address the demands of La Rioja in infrastructure matters.

Gamarra made these statements to journalists in the Rioja town of Villamediana de Iregua, where he participated in the festivities in honor of San Isidro.

He has alluded to Puente’s visit to La Rioja, on May 31, to meet with the president of the regional government, Gonzalo Capellán, and analyze the situation of the community’s infrastructure.

On April 19, Puente announced a new Logroño-Madrid train through Miranda de Ebro (Burgos), a proposal that Capellán considered “disappointing” because it would lengthen the journey, so, the next day, Puente published on his X account that would offer that rail service to other territories.

Infrastructure deficit

Gamarra has confirmed that “in La Rioja there is an infrastructure deficit”, so the head of the regional Executive will remind Puente that the people of Rioja, although they are few, have “the same rights” as the rest of Spaniards.

“We do not want to be more than anyone else, but we do not want to be less and what we demand is fair, we ask for connections” that provide more competitiveness and future to the community, he stressed.

For this reason, he has trusted that the Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility will listen to Capellán so that everything that has been stopped for so long, in the six years of Pedro Sánchez’s Government, is reactivated.
