The deputy head of the Buenos Aires Government, Emmanuel Ferrario, crossed the national deputy Javier Milei this Wednesday for considering that he attacks the people of Buenos Aires by echoing the ruling of Judge Roberto Gallardo on alleged acts of espionage in the City of Buenos Aires.
“This is Javier Milei. a politician who once again he gets on a dirty operation orchestrated by Kirchnerism. I insist: reseller of populism. That way he did not get the information that in CABA more than 2,000 murderers and rapists were arrested by facial recognition, ”said Ferrario through his Twitter account.
Milei reproduced through her social networks some fragments and publications that refer to the ruling, which suspended the facial recognition system for fugitives of the City of Buenos Aires.
Among the messages shared by the leader of La Libertad Avanza, the vast majority are with accusations and criticisms against Horacio Rodríguez Larreta and the Buenos Aires government.
Ferrario had already spoken out last week against Milei, who announced that he will run for president in 2023.
In statements to the press, the Buenos Aires official stated: “I think that Milei is a great reseller of populism. In Argentina there is a frustration of the people with politics and a need for a change because this does not work.”
