Pite, boos and insults. The president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has not had the best day of him today.

The President of the Government failed to avoid a generalized boo despite the fact that the public was far from the place where the authorities were.

Subsequently, he moved to the Castellana where, under the presidency of the kings, this military stop was celebrated, which, as the minister remembered, can be carried out after a "very hard" stage. Because, during these months, the military have had to carry out an operation in national territory, unprecedented: the Balmi operation and, later Baluarte. Dedicated to the decontamination of senior centers and strategic facilities, the transfer of tens of thousands of deceased, the provisioning of essential health materials ... and, in addition, actions after the Filomena disaster.
