Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu (photo R) said Friday, as a member of the Social Democratic Party (PSD), major at rule, that he disagrees with the current conduct of the political rapport between now PSD national leader Liviu Dragnea (photo L) and former PSD national leader, insisting that things should be discussed inside the party.
“I do not like this attitude and I tell you as it is. I have been a member for more than 20 years; in fact this is my 21st year of PSD membership, and I believe that all things have to be discussed inside the party and it is not just me. First of all, things have to be discussed inside, and it is not just me, all the stances, the one you have mentioned of former chairman Victor Ponta and maybe of others. I believe these have to be said inside the party, and I also believe that is what we naturally should do, in an attempt to right things when they should,” Grindeanu said after attending a meeting at the Valahia University of Targoviste as part of a working visit to Dambovita County.
Grindeanu thus answered after being asked to comment on what is happening to the political rapport between Dragnea and Ponta, given that Ponta “attacks PSD quite often.”
Asked whether or not Ponta shared his dissatisfaction with the current PSD leadership, Grindeanu said that he met Ponta about three weeks before but had no recent conversation with him.
“I have not talked to him in about one month. Victor Ponta is a former leader of the party, a PSD member, but I do not want to fill my time todays answering to your questions about Victor Ponta (…) My meetings so far in Dambovita are excellent and they continue. I would like to hear about new problems that we can solve at a governmental level,” said Grindeanu.
The Prime Minister was also scheduled to meet trade union members and the management boards of the Automecanica Moreni and the Mija Mechanical Factory as part of his Dambovita tour.
