The president of the PP of the province of Alicante, Toni Pérez, has denounced this Friday the “discrimination” to the province in the price reduction plan in the High Speed, whose discounts do not apply to the AVE trains that connect Alicante with MadridEn In a statement, Pérez has lamented “this new attack on the province” and has demanded “equality in the standards of the prices of AVE tickets, as it is not understood that prices are lowered in other provinces and communities, but not in Alicante” “They are ignoring the competitiveness of our tourism and the large number of workers and students who need to use the High Speed for work reasons for the routes that connect Alicante and Madrid”, he has maintained. Likewise, he has indicated that “once again” the people of Alicante pay “the broken dishes”. “It is clear that with Sánchez and Puig this province will never raise its head”, he pointed out. “We do not understand that a citizen of Castilla y León or Aragón pays less than one from Alicante”, he added. We do not understand that a citizen of Castilla y León or Aragón pays less than one from Alicante Pérez has highlighted that more than 11 million and average number of passengers have used the AVE connections to travel between Alicante and Madrid and vice versa (a line that also stops in Villena, Cuenca and Albacete) until 2020, which is when rail traffic was stopped until it was reactivated. “We have the The most used AVE line. From the Popular Party, what we want is for Alicante to be included in the High Speed price reduction plan because inflation and the general increase in prices affect us all, “he indicated. “Many tourists come here and there are also thousands of people from Alicante who need the AVE connection to Madrid for work reasons or to study”, he added. Lastly, Pérez lamented that “every decision made by the Government of Spain affects the province without Puig coming out to defend us”. “They want to stifle tourism with taxes, with more expensive prices, they put obstacles on the beaches, they leave us at the tail of investment per capita and they want to leave us without Imserso. It is clear that we need the policies of the PP and Carlos Mazón to change things throughout the Valencian Community”, he concluded.
