The Vice Minister of Government Management and Coordination, Gustavo Torrico, argued that “Santa Cruz does not survive a federal State”, since its model “survives today” under subsidies.
“Santa Cruz does not survive a federal state, Santa Cruz today survives – the model – under a fuel subsidy, under an agribusiness subsidy, under a seed subsidy, under a machinery subsidy,” Torrico said, quoted by ABI.
In January, the governor of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, maintained that the authoritarian model of the Plurinational State is dying and the productive proposal of the Federal State is emerging. Camacho is imprisoned in the Chonchocoro prison in La Paz.
“From the Plurinational State to the Federal State. After almost two decades, the political project that proposed Bolivia as a Plurinational State is living its agony, as it has meant a moment in our history marked by the violent imposition of an authoritarian model on all regions, with customs and symbols foreign to our cultures and our history”, the Governor said then in a message published on his social networks.
In relation to Camacho, Torrico stated the following: “Mr. (Camacho) is there in his cell, he can ask for whatever he wants, he just wants validity,” he said.
