Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, Aishath Nahula has stated that the former administration of Abdulla Yameen had spent undue expenses for Mechanical Parking Systems and that the current government will seek out those to be held responsible for it.
Mechanical parking is not the most adequate solution to reduce congestion in small-island state like Maldives, stressed Nahula, stating that she believed the government of President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih will take adequate action against those behind the undue expenses spent on the project.
Shedding light on the mounting issue of congestion in Malé, Nahula stated that there are about 100 vehicles registered for garage parking and that the government will not shut down mechanical parking without providing a solution for those registered for it.
Further, the minister expressed her belief that the current government is not slow in their development progress.
Highlighting that the country was not in the best condition when the new government took over, Nahula stressed that it is only natural to take time to upright the country, especially with challenges from the opposition.
She went on to assure the public that the government will not fail to fulfill its pledges to the people.
