Gabbay after train work frozen: Government doesn’t care if we sit in traffic

Zionist Union chairman Avi Gabbay pans the government for bowing to pressure from ultra-Orthodox parties by canceling construction bridge construction work planned to take place on Shabbat.

“This government does not care if we sit in traffic, just as they do not care about hospital overcrowding,” Gabbai said.

“As prime minister, I will preserve our interests and will not surrender to small political interests… Instead of tackling the problem, this government simply worsens it.”
