Former interior minister Gilad Erdan attacked Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon in a fiery speech at a changing-of-the-guard ceremony at the Interior Ministry on Sunday afternoon.

Erdan came out strongly against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acquiescing to Kahlon's demand to transfer the Building Planning Directorate from the Interior Ministry to Kahlon's Finance Ministry.

"Transferring the Planning Directorate can cause 'a planning disaster' that can harm the citizens of the country," Erdan said. "It will be swallowed by the Finance Ministry whose entire goal and interest is economic."
