The conservative bloc of the Christian democratic Union and Christian social Union is planning the creation of a Ministry of his native land, which should help the development of rural regions and to oppose the populists. About this reports Deutsche Welle.
It is possible that the Ministry will appear based on the Ministry of agriculture. As noted, the head of the Ministry of agriculture Christian Schmidt is a fervent supporter of this idea.
“The quality and conditions of life in rural regions will be the Central theme of the next few years…If people feel that they are left in the lurch, it should be taken seriously,” – said the Minister.
“Which leaves the state, becomes easy prey for populists, – said the head of the Christian democratic Union in the Federal state of Thuringia, Mike Moring.
“We will not give them our cities and towns”, he added.
