DP’s Basha Hits Back…
Democratic Party (DP) Chairman Lulzim Basha through a status on Twitter has reacted regarding the partial closure of schools, saying that PM Edi Rama has no plan regarding the pandemic and that he has lost control over it.
This is because he previously stated that “children do not infect others with coronavirus” and now announces the partial closure of schools.
“Rama has lost control of the pandemic and has no idea what to do. Rama has no plans,” Basha said. /argumentum.al
