The head of the General Labor Union, Bechara Al-Asmar, spoke of a “prior agreement between the Land Transport Union and Prime Minister Najib Mikati in his presence, according to which Mikati pledged to give public drivers allowances for the increase in fuel prices, and so far he has not paid anything despite the insane rise in fuel prices. These are the facilitating means to implement it in a way that reflects positively on the entire Lebanese people, after the price of public cars has become between 25 and 35 thousand L. L, and is expected to reach 50 or 60 thousand L. L , and accordingly, supporting drivers leads to an acceptable price that is reflected on workers and students, and the soldiers.” In an interview with “Electronic News”, he indicated that “there is a public transport plan adopted by the World Bank, which it has studied, and allocated an amount of 290 million dollars for its implementation within Greater Beirut, with a fast transport line from Beirut to Tabarja, including the purchase of 250 buses, to be deducted.” Part of this amount was to be purchased, and that the Minister of Transport, Ali Hamiyah, re-examined the plan and expressed his readiness to implement it, as well as the maintenance of 45 buses that were with the Transportation Authority and will soon be operated within Beirut. Al-Asmar pointed out, “He received a call from President Mikati and from Minister Hamiyah, and that they are striving to spare the country more turmoil, because the Lebanese people are tired of the imbalance policies.” Commenting on the insane rise in the price of the dollar, he demanded, “The state should strike with an iron fist, calling on the judiciary to combat this black chaos internally and externally, and everyone who speculates in the national currency, which has been seriously damaged, surprising how some do not have the slightest sense of responsibility, as if they are not They are concerned with humiliating the people, especially through circulars that practice “heres” in one way or another, allowing depositors to withdraw their deposits on $ 8,000 lira, so their loss, according to the platform’s pricing, will be two-thirds of these deposits through a convincing “hercat”, hoping to end the journey of torment, and lead to the development of The regional situation will lead to a positive reflection that helps Lebanon return to its previous era of prosperity and affluence.
