| And presents allegations to the cut made by the PSOE We Can Government Team to public transport discounts | The popular Molinenses have presented allegations to include certain social bonuses, in the Regulating Ordinance of Social Rates for Interurban and Urban Public Transport. The president and spokesman for the popular, José Ángel Alfonso, has stated that "he hopes that the PSOE We Can Government Team rectify and include the bonuses that we have alleged." Molina de Segura on November 21, 2020.
From the Popular Party, we denounce that the local government PSOE-Podemos has made a series of cuts in the social rates included in the Regulatory Ordinance of Social Rates of Transport, and that they are inadmissible in the current situation in which we find ourselves. The previous ordinance was approved by the Popular Party in 2012, and already at the time, it meant an improvement in the social rates of urban and interurban public transport.
So much so, that thanks to this Ordinance approved by the Popular Party, we are currently still one of the municipalities in the Region of Murcia with the best social rates. In order for Molina de Segura to continue being a benchmark in this sense, we have presented a series of allegations to prevent the PSOE Podemos Government Team from imposing cuts that would mean a setback and a loss of purchasing power for Moline families.
The Popular Party of Molina de Segura cannot allow that in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, the Government Team propose measures that mean a drastic reduction in transport bonuses, or in any other aspect that directly affects the pocket of citizens and more specifically to people who use public transport, who are probably not those with a greater purchasing power. We summarize the bonuses that the PSOE Podemos Government Team intends to eliminate from the Regulatory Ordinance of Social Rates of Public Transport: The unemployed are required not to have unemployment benefit to obtain the bonus, a situation contrary to the one that occurred with the previous ordinance in which a time criterion was established.
We believe that the positive is to complement both criteria, since they are not exclusive, to help the widest range of the population possible in these difficult times. They discriminate against students based on age.
There is no point in having a cut in the bonus for age ranges.
What they should do is extend the bonus to all students, eliminating any type of discrimination. A bonus for special large families (4 children or more, or special circumstances) is not included. The PSOE Podemos Government Team has insisted that Molina de Segura go down in history as the city that cuts the most in social benefits, and above in the middle of the COVID19 pandemic. They discriminate against people with a certain degree of disability.
Obviously, and for reasons of coherence, we ask that a 50% discount be applied to those people who have a disability between 33 and 64.9%. As we cannot consent that with the modification of the Ordinance they remove bonuses from the Molinenses, and more so in these tough economic times, from the Popular Party we have presented allegations to the Ordinance Regulating Social Rates Interurban and Urban Public Transport, which wants to approve PSOE Podemos Government Team. The popular Molinenses want the Ordinance to include the bonuses in the following rates: Rate B2.
That people with a disability between 33% and 64.9% be rewarded with 50%. CA rate: Long-term unemployed for a year or more, which means maintaining the temporary criterion, to be complemented with the new economic criterion. Rate D.
That the bonus covers all students, starting from ESO, and that they do not discriminate because they have a certain age. EA rate.
That the Special Large Families be rewarded. Rate F.
Discount for young people up to 30 years old.
It is vital to subsidize transport for young people, as is already done in many other cities in Spain. The citizens of Moline must know that many of these bonuses were proposed by the Popular Party in a Motion that was presented in January; motion that was withdrawn so that the Government Team could propose these allegations in the pertinent Commission. At first, the proposals made by the Popular Party were willingly accepted by the PSOE - Podemos Government Team, since they were included in the second draft of the ordinance that they presented in February.
But now, by spontaneous generation, these bonuses have disappeared again, perhaps because they currently do not have the economic resources to be able to carry them out. The president and spokesman for the popular, José Ángel Alfonso, has stated in this regard that "we expect a rectification by the local government PSOE-Podemos, and thus avoid a historical setback in the bonuses of public transport of the Molinenses, because in the situation present in which we are, what proceeds is to extend bonuses and not to cut them or eliminate them ". The Popular Party trusts that the local PSOE-Podemos government will apply common sense and approve the allegations they have presented, because they are necessary for the people of Moline.
