Flood cartoons, politically promised Shkodra!

Flood cartoons, politically promised Shkodra!

If the weather continues and a few days with heavy rain, over the large basin of Shkodra region, but also in the catchments of Vau Dejës, Fierzë and Koman, it will not be flooded only under Shkodra and the expansion area of its waters, but the city will also be endangered. I extracted from my archives, a show of mine with some personalities of the citizens of Shkodra in December 2010. I was interviewing the well-known intellectuals of the city Fadil Kraja, Filip Guraziu and Sytki Brahimi. I was reminded of the images and politicization, but also the promises. It was the fourth time that Berisha and "his managers" of the Drini cascade were drowned in Shkodra. There came a moment when the cascade and the catchments stopped, especially Fierza and Vau i Dejës and the gates were opened, drowning Shkodra. Over 6000 cubic meters per second were entering the Drini bridge from Kiri and Drini together and the lake could not get out of this monstrous water power. Also the thick legs of the new Buna bridge and the dumping of garbage, but also the narrowing of the Buna estuary were doing their own thing and Shkodra sank in the neighborhoods of Xhabije, Liria, Top Hana, Kiras, Dudas and all the meadows where the local government the Democrat had allowed residents to build. Almost more than the inhabitants of the city of Lezha. O men of the entire democratic government and O men of the entire socialist opposition to do business and politics with the people of Shkodra under water. Over 60,000 inhabitants under water, (30,000 in the city) thousands of cattle drowned, thousands of houses and crops wasted. Almost 1000 businesses under water. For what, because no one wanted to regulate Shkodra and did not administer the hydropower basins under the Berisha government. What was not promised and proposed by both the government and the opposition. It was promised by-pass dam to protect the city, it was promised to release the narrowing of the Buna estuary, it was promised to clean and deepen it, but also to put under control the entire Buna flow, it was promised to clean and rehabilitate the former canals of the Shkodra plain and the construction of new ones, promised the commissioning of hydropower plants and the planning of young people to receive excess water. A big strategy of over 100 million euros of investments was promised so that Shkodra, already with four hydropower plants on its territory, would not be drowned. It was promised that the largest hydropower plant in the Balkans would not be drowned. It was promised that the Shkodra region, which gave energy to all of Albania, would not suffer any more. It was politically promised by the PD of that time and it was politically promised by the SP as the opposition of that time that Shkodra would no longer suffer from floods as a result of the administration of the level of the HPP lakes regime and the lack of investments. for the protection of the big city. What have they done? Nothing. Apart from some sewers, neither dams, nor strategies nor protection of Shkodra from water, nor millions of euros for the multitude of investments to withstand the flood, the regulation of Buna and the most powerful hydraulic junction of Albania and the Western Balkans, which is the exit of the great lake of Shkodra, Kirit and Drini at the same time. Nothing, neither Sali Berisha nor anything, neither Edi Rama, the two people who have practically promised politically the flood of Shkodra, for they have promised precisely its protection which they have not performed. Yesterday, Edi Rama and Lulzim Basha came at the same time to make fun of Shkodra. One that he is prime minister and should appear to be doing its already disgusting work and propaganda and the other that he is the opposition leader and will appear to be doing anti-government political war propaganda. The first did not keep his word about those strategies that he promised not to drown Shkodra and the second that he was in the floods of 2010 and that he promised not to flood Shkodra anymore because of the lack of investments that he did not make until 2013- n. To date in Shkodra over 30,000 ha of agricultural land have been flooded and over 800 rural farms are expected to be made if there will be discharge from Vau i Dejës and double these figures. This in the eyes of PD and SP and the same people who were in 2010. Exactly in the eyes of Lulzim Basha and Edi Rama. I can say that maybe the management of the cascade has been better, not filling the dams and then releasing the water as in the time of Sali Berisha, but anyway this time is approaching if the heavy rains and heavy snow that can melt weigh and the catchments of the large dams Fierzë, Koman and Vau i Dejës. With the fury of Kirit coming from the River Bank and the Expensive Bridge, with the half opening of the gates of Vau i Dejes on the Drini Bridge, over 4000 meters of water will come per second and under Shkodra it will drown to create that disaster great in general emergency. If this flow is increased, the disaster will extend to Xhabije, and this is the end of the demagogic political promise of both the DP and the current SP. I wish it did not happen, but I am convinced that the political promise of the flood is clear to those who still have gray matter in their brains in Shkodra as right and left. Shkodra is being killed with political promises and they have warned about this several times. I am convinced that there is still a mass of almost one meter in Lake Shkodra, but it does not need the inflows of Kirit and Vau i Dejes. Apart from the fact of heavy rains throughout the territory of Shkodra and especially its large lake. Yesterday the lake looked like the sea. Large too and almost full. Where will it flow in time to have the "full Kiri and Drini"? I really hope in nature. But she is not to blame for why Albanian politics promises and does nothing. Neither the deepening, the cleaning and the good dams in Buna, nor the sewers, nor the bypass dam in Shkodra, nor the new hydropower plant, nor the new dams strategically to protect the exit of Buna nor ... nothing at all. This is what the promising SP and DP have done for ten or 11 years since December 2010, when almost all of Shkodra was under water. Today they come and do propaganda again. Yes, and they want votes in Shkodra again. Well yes and of course again they will find idiots to give them.
