The Minister of Social Development, Victoria Tolosa Paz, defended the beneficiaries of the Potenciar Trabajo plan and pointed out that there was a “double stigmatization” in the information that was disseminated. In addition, he confirmed that an audit of the portfolio he heads will begin on Monday.
“We are not going to allow the double stigmatization: to the people and to a State far from the efficiency and control. We are guaranteeing administrative processes. We are committed to ordering social policies,” the official said at a press conference.
On the other hand, he acknowledged that, after the cross-linking of data between the Central Bank and the AFIP, “947 holders are now suspended and go to the evaluation stage.”
“99.7% of the people who are inside correspond to this transfer of income. With 0.3% of people who for some reason did not meet part of the conditions, we are going to be inflexible,” he said in this regard,
In addition, he stated that “the program is not incompatible with the fact of having a car that is more than 10 years old, or having a motorcycle, a property in the name of a person who has the program.” So he stated that “There were many versions of stigmatization of the women and men who have the program as essential for Argentina.”
“With 0.3% of people who for some reason did not meet part of the conditions, we are going to be inflexible”
The origin of the conflict
This conference took place within the framework of the complaints that one in four Potenciar Trabajo plans were carried out irregularly. In this scenario, the investigation that the public prosecutor began Guillermo Marijuan could generate important breaks in the coming days, as he was able to confirm PROFILE according to sources of the “orgas” inside and outside the Ministry of Social Development.
In the midst of all this, the Ministry was unaware of the report made by the AFIP, in which it detected the irregularities.
“We cannot confirm that there have been irregularities”stated when the information became known, Minister Victoria Tolosa Paz in dialogue with Chain 3.
“It is poorly constructed information based on question number 4 of a public report by prosecutor Marijuan. For now we do not have the information on the nominal list of beneficiaries. When we have it, we will inform you,” he added.
