Diesel’s aroma wafts from FPM

When the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) smells the fragrance of the parliamentary elections, it wakes up from its deep sleep, to remember the Lebanese suddenly, the people that President Michel Aoun led to hell, and Gebran Bassil led to total collapse.

The FPM looks at the parliamentary elections as a chance to bribe people, and repurpose them under its worn-out cloak as a result of the party’s corrupt behavior over years of squandering in the Ministry of Energy, during which the depositors’ money were exploited. They were spending from the citizen’s deposits and savings, and their money were transferred into a treasury advance for the Ministry of Energy.

Once again, the appetite of the covenant’s son-in-law is opened, and he begins the tips campaign from the state’s treasury which is already bankrupt. Bassil has contributed greatly in its bankruptcy due to his wrong policies.

Today, after Bassil took advantage of his presence in power and the presence of Aoun in the presidency, he turned on the diesel fuel tap on the generator owners who revolve in the orbit of his party.” Batroun was oversupplied with diesel so its citizens enjoy the electricity of the generators without rationing. From Batroun to the owners of the Aounian generators, the distribution of diesel did not stop, and the orange generators operate day and night.

Sources from within one of the fuel importers revealed that Bassil took advantage of part of the $250 million that was allocated for importing fuels in order to provide his followers with diesel, and he obliged some importing companies to supply some regions and generators with this commodity.

Sources told Sawt Beirut International that Bassil personally took over the management of the battle against the Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh, with the approval of President Aoun, in order to obtain this advance and speed up the release of diesel fuel to be exploited for electoral purposes. This process will not be for once, as it seems that Basil decided to run the electoral battle through fuel, exploiting the people’s need for this commodity, and buying people’s votes with a gasoline voucher and liters of diesel.

After distributing asphalt in the last elections, today it is the diesel’s turn. Between diesel and asphalt the aroma of corruption and bribery wafts from FPM. Bassil’s attempts to save himself, will not remove him from the hole he fell into, and will not save the covenant from the fire of hell in which they have drove us to it.
