New session of control of the Government in Congress, but the same protagonists and messages as last week. The general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, asked the chief executive about the "concessions" to the independentistas after the dismissal of the former director of the National Intelligence Center (CNI), Paz Esteban. The socialist leader, once again, has gone off on a tangent and has used his favorite wild card: the corruption of the popular in the past.
Gamarra, in a speech much applauded by his bench, put on the table the "many unknowns" that remain to be resolved about the alleged espionage of the separatists with the Pegasus malware. First, he pointed out that Sánchez as president should be aware of everything that happened and then asked Sánchez how he was able to negotiate his investiture with ERC and EH Bildu, when several of its leaders were being investigated with judicial authorization for being « a threat to Spain.
In his first reply, Sánchez has ironized with what "the new PP" looks like to the previous one and has blamed Gamarra for asking him "the same thing" as his previous leader, Pablo Casado, in his last speech in the plenary session on last February 23. "You only sow discord," Sánchez accused, in a much harsher tone than he has later used with PNV and Bildu.
«If he knew that they were a danger and that they were being investigated, how is it possible that he opened the doors of La Moncloa to them and sat down with them to negotiate? Did they stop being investigated once he was invested or after this photo in La Moncloa? », Gamarra asked, showing a photo of the meeting between Sánchez and the previous 'president' of the Generalitat, Quim Torra. "His government is born from a diabolical pact," Gamarra has stirred up, who has questioned Sánchez what he will grant in his next meeting with Pere Aragonès.
Sánchez, without at any time entering into the matter for which the number two of the PP questioned him, has limited himself, once again, to disfiguring the popular's episodes of corruption, trying to link the current leadership with the practices committed in the past, like Operation Kitchen. “You were convicted of corruption. Meanwhile, the Government is concerned about the Spaniards," said Sánchez, who concluded his face-to-face meeting with Gamarra as follows: "Today's PP, yesterday's PP and the day before yesterday's PP practice the same denialist opposition against the Government of Spain".
