Criticism in the municipal authority for the recent floods in neighborhoods of Athens caused by "Balos", was exercised by the opposition parties at the meeting of the House that is in progress.

"The issue was raised in the first municipal council immediately after the summer and the fires. In fact, there was a relevant letter from residents from Kolonos and Plato's Academy. We are talking about a historical area that lacks the basic infrastructure such as the rainwater network ", underlined Nassos Iliopoulos.

"We had the same problems again in several areas of Athens as for so many years", stressed Popi Giannopoulou from the combination "Athens Is You". "But mainly in the Plato Academy and in Kolonos, an area that is about one kilometer from the center of Athens. It should have a central sewage pipe, unfortunately it does not. At some point, the municipality must assume its responsibility ", said Ms. Giannopoulou.

"There is a reality behind the weather. We had a heavy rain for a few hours and the result was lakes and kayaks. This is the image and this image reflects your policy and the responsibility you have ", noted Nikos Sofianos from the" People's Rally of Athens ". It is the policy that has as a priority development plans, renovations of millions in Eleonas, in a PAE free "hot money and at the same time anti-flood measures and projects", Mr. Sofianos pointed out.

"We got to have floods at the Plato Academy, at the Acropolis, at Lycabettus, there were torrents, in the containers and at the two stadiums in Mets and Exarchia dripping. These indicate a complete failure to manage their issue. "The climate crisis cannot be the excuse for everything", said among others Petros Konstantinou from Antarsia in the neighborhoods of Athens.

"Athens has sunk and no one is discussing the issue of flood protection, fire protection and seismic protection," said Panagiotis Kefalinos from the "Anti-Capitalist Overthrow in Athens". "Will these issues ever be discussed? Will we take action? We can put pressure on the State, the ministry, EYDAP. Will we do that? "There must be a substantive discussion in the municipal council", added the municipal councilor of the Anti-Capitalist Overthrow in Athens.
