AMLO's Social and Infrastructure Spending in Vallarta-Nayarit

López Obrador receives a warm welcome in Nayarit.

Improvements to roads and street lights, new sports centers, a library and seafront walkway in Bucerías were among the projects announced by President López Obrador during a visit to Nayarit and Jalisco on Sunday, where he and the cabinet secretaries who accompanied him also heard some complaints about new welfare programs.

In Bahía de Banderas, Jalisco, young and old citizens complained they registered for programs but had not yet received any support.

In response, López Obrador called for patience, asking that the “elephant” – the apparatus of government he inherited – be given time to learn to walk.

He also blamed the previous government for leaving infrastructure that was not there to help the people. Instead, the president charged, the government “was a facilitator of corruption, at the service of a rapacious minority . . .”

“The transformation [of Mexico] also means that we all have to act responsibly, send the subculture of abuse down the drain. None of this ‘he who doesn’t cheat, doesn’t get ahead.’ That can go to hell,” he said.

The president also took aim at Grupo Carso, a conglomerate owned by Mexico’s Carlos Slim, for failing to complete a decade-old project to build a highway between Jala, Nayarit, and Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.

“A company has had the concession to build the highway here for more than 10 years but there’s no progress. I’m going to talk to them . . . [either] they finish it or the concession is taken away, it’s as simple as that,” López Obrador said.

But Grupo Carso responded to the president’s attack last night, stating that the section of highway with problems is between Compostela, Nayarit, and Jala, and that it only took over responsibility for that stretch six months ago after another company abandoned it. The project is now back on track, Grupo Carso said.
