The ruling and opposition parties are also talking about flood recovery and victims…Continuing the “Responsibility Workshop”
Politicians again focused on flood situations today, visiting rain-damaged areas, mourning the victims.
On the other hand, there was a dispute over where the responsibility for the flood was.
Leader Kim Ki-hyun of the People’s Power Party and other ruling party leaders visited a village in Gamcheon-myeon, Yecheon-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do, which was damaged by heavy rain.
CEO Kim looked around the damage situation and helped by removing floating matter from the apple tree field.
<Kim Ki-hyun / Representative of the People’s Power> “We will make sure to support the budget and manpower so that we can recover as soon as possible and return to our daily lives.”
Park Kwang-on, floor leader of the Democratic Party of Korea, headed to Pohang, North Gyeongsang Province, with several lawmakers.
We visited the memorial altar of the late Sergeant Chae Soo-geun, who died while searching for the missing.
Floor leader Park promised to prepare institutional supplementary measures through SNS, saying that it was painful for the military to fail to protect soldiers who were on duty at the disaster site.
The ruling and opposition parties were no different in restoring the affected areas and voicing their condolences for the victims.
However, there was a war of nerves over the responsibility of the flood.
The People’s Power linked the audit results of the Board of Audit and Inspection, which judged that there was a problem in the process of the government’s decision to dismantle the four major rivers, to the flood damage.
“The main stream of the four-river project was relatively good, but flood damage was concentrated in tributaries and streams where the maintenance project was not carried out properly due to opposition from civic groups.”
<Yoon Jae-ok / Floor Leader of the People’s Power> “We need to thoroughly correct the problem so that ideology does not crush science and the people bear the damage again.”
The Democratic Party of Korea responded by saying that the Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye administrations also pointed out problems with the four major river projects.
<Ko Min-jung / Supreme Council member of the Democratic Party of Korea> “What can you say if it is not a targeted investigation by the Moon Jae In government?”
In addition, the Democratic Party of Korea repeatedly insists on pushing for an extra budget for disaster recovery, and the People’s Power opposes this year’s main budget, saying that disaster support and reserve funds have already been set up.
