Socialists: Holiday celebration of progress
The Hungarian national holiday, March 15, is a celebration of social development, "real national issues" and European progress, the co-leader of the Socialist Party said on the anniversary of the 1848 revolution and freedom fight in Budapest's 20th district on Wednesday.
Agnes Kunhalmi slammed the Orbán government saying that “Prime Minister Viktor Orbán created a web of a million dependencies in Hungary, hobbling social progress, development and modernisation”. “Neither progress, nor true national representation, nor progressive European principles” are typical attributes of the government, she said.
Hungarians actively shaped European events in 1848, she said.
Today’s Hungary should become a cooperative and sovereign country where freedom and prosperity are equally present, she said.
