In this regard, he pointed out that it is not only about creating new opportunities to develop the economy of Mexicans but also about giving children and youth the care that they do not receive from the neoliberal government.
“We will preserve the legacy of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador; we will continue to change Mexico, but we need everyone,” he said.
The statement of the pre-candidate emerged in the context of the announcement of the Chief Executive, in which he announced a few weeks ago what the guidelines are for the return of passenger trains in the country.
During the press conference on November 22, the President detailed how the trains will return to Mexico and the rules for the concessionaires, who must offer the service at affordable prices to passengers.
“We don’t need to start these trains, but we will leave everything arranged so that whoever replaces us can start, a six-year term is enough to get all the trains in the country and we there is the main thing. , which are the roads because “They are the most expensive, here it works on the existing roads, but you have the right of way, that is the most important thing,” said the President in his conference in the morning.
By exposing thecommand published in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF), stating that in the concession that general rail communication routes are to be given to the provision of rail service to the public, the president mentioned that a letter was sent to the sellers.
“I hope to have a good attitude, if not it remains a possibility for the State, through the SICT, to concession the service,” he said, stating that the concessions that Grupo México remains the same, that is, they will continue. with freight transportation and concessions for passenger trains will be given to other companies.
The document contextualizes that the railway played an important role in the development, growth, and integration of the national territory in the 19th and early 20th centuries, so the privatization of the service during the administration of Ernesto Zedillo in 1995 is a sad truth.
So it is in the interest of the government of Mexico to promote the implementation of passenger railways that improve the quality of life and promote the well-being and mobility of people.
Thus, the order in question emphasizes that passenger railways represent economical, safe, and less polluting transportation, in addition to being the best alternative to increase the mobility of the population in the main cities.
The president announced that the concessionaires of the railway freight transport service will be able to present their projects for the implementation of the passenger service, which must be sent to the Secretariat of Infrastructure, Communications, and Transportation (SICT) until January 15, 2024.
