On Sunday President Ollanta Humala criticized past governments for politicizing water programs, and claimed previous governments used such projects to “manipulate people,” Peru21 reported.

“What the hell did previous governments do,” Humala said during his speech at the inauguration of a water and sewage works in Ate Vitarte.

“We are ashamed to admit that the state was divorced of its population, and closely tied to the big ones, those potbellied ones who believe economic growth belongs to them, and don’t know it belongs to the Peruvian people,” the president added, in what is thought to be an allusion to former President Alan Garcia.

Humala speech drew criticism from member’s of Garcia’s APRA party, including Congressman Mauricio Mulder, who said, “Presidents should be focusing on politics, and not if other people are fat, skinny or short.”

"Those in the military like to say that they are manly, but it seems unmanly to be talking about the anatomy of other people,” Mulder was quoted as saying by El Comercio.

 

“We are ashamed to admit that the state was divorced of its population, and closely tied to the big ones, those potbellied ones who believe economic growth belongs to them, Humala said.
