Udrea lashes out at Ungureanu and Orban

The former Minister of Regional Development and Tourism, Elena Udrea yesterday lashed out at some of her party and government colleagues. She said that the minister of European Affairs, Leonard Orban should resign if he cannot convince the European Commission to allocate the money unused by other programmes for the thermal restoration of housing units. “Initially, there was talk about the money being redistributed in March. We thus strived and had talks with the European Commission, and now I learn Minister Orban allegedly said he is not so sure that this money will come. If Mr. Orban is unable to convince the European Commission (…) he should resign,” Udrea said, quoted by Mediafax. Even the acting PM Ungureanu did not escape Udrea’s criticism, as the former minister said that he did not know the subject when he spoke about swimming pools, and added that she expects him and the members of the Cabinet to avoid making statements in bad faith, like Antena 3 journalists. Last week, Ungureanu criticised the projects of the Development Ministry about building gyms and swimming pools throughout the country.
