Coalition MK: Transport Ministry 'stealing from the periphery' with reforms

Rebel coalition MK Michael Biton of Blue and White used strong language when criticizing Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli's public transportation reform plan on Tuesday at a meeting of his Knesset Economics Committee.

"The Transportation Ministry is stealing money from the periphery to give to the rich," Biton said. "They are displaying wickedness, not justice."

Michaeli said on Monday that the plan makes each kilometer of public transportation cost the same and fixes inequality caused by crooked deals made by her predecessors.
