Even now, they hit those who hurt the most, those who can defend themselves the least. (with video)
The Fidesz-KDNP faction in Miskolc protests, according to which the left-wing leadership of the city brutally increased the rent for municipal apartments. The governing parties believe this has pushed many tenants to the brink of insolvency. According to the city management, the increased fees would be used to renovate dwellings in poor condition. Fidesz-KDNP deputies say that not only should former rents be restored, but also catering and taxi companies in difficult situations should be helped, it was revealed in the M1 Newsletter.
Tenants in Miskolc will receive a brutal rent increase from the city administration - the Hungarian Nation wrote about this on Monday. According to the article, the left-liberal leadership of the city of Borsod County has drastically increased the rent for municipal housing in Miskolc, pushing thousands of citizens to the brink of insolvency.
Among other things, the former employees of the cement factory in Miskolc, some of whom may have a 50 percent or even double increase in their monthly housing costs.
According to the decision, residents will also have to pay a deposit from January,
which the municipality would collect not only from new tenants but also retroactively from those who have lived in municipal housing for decades.
Several residents told M1 that if you pay the new rent along with the security deposit, almost nothing will be left of their pension.
In addition, the tenants say the municipality would be wrong to ask for a deposit from a significant portion of the residents.
It has already been worked on by many local factories under the original housing contracts.
At the request of M1, Miskolc Holding Zrt., Which manages rental flats, stated that the city management would renovate the municipal flats in poor technical or unpublishable condition from the increased fees.
They wrote that 60 percent of the proceeds would be spent on reconstruction, but their response did not indicate what the rest of the money collected from tenants would be spent on.
According to the Fidesz-KDNP faction in Miskolc, it is also unacceptable that they want to pay for the renovations to the needy residents.
Attila Soós, a pro-government local government representative, emphasized that the left-wing city administration could do so either from tender sources or from the tax revenues received in the city.
As he said, the decision affects 3,800 flats and thousands of Miskolcis, including retirees, as well as hundreds of families with small children, with whom the municipality has not consulted on the matter.
Meanwhile, pro-government MPs on Wednesday spoke out against more than just left-wing city government decisions on rental housing.
Representatives of Fidesz-KDNP also proposed that the local government of Miskolc release the public land use fee and a part of the rents imposed on caterers and taxi drivers by the end of December in view of the coronavirus epidemic.
A similar proposal was recently submitted by the Fidesz-KDNP faction in the capital, which was rejected by the General Assembly chaired by Gergely Karácsony in Budapest.
The city administration in Baloda did not put the 50 billion rescue program on the agenda in the capital either, instead it submitted a proposal of its own, in which the amount of subsidies intended for Budapest residents was reduced compared to Fidesz's proposal.
