  1. Nuk kam asgje kunder prishjes se Teatrit , Nuk kam asgje kunder ndertimit te kullave ( sipas ligjeve ne fuqi ) , Tirana do zhvillohet kjo dihet dhe kullat duhen. Nuk me pelqen kur me genjejne ne kete fare menyre nga kryetari i bashkise per detaje ( qe perdoren per argumenta mbeshtetes) te ketij plani ndertimi/prishje. Nuk me pelqen qe kjo gje eshte bere pa konkurs persa i perket faktit se kush do ti ndertoje kullat . E di eshte e veshtire , sepse aty eshte dhe toke private dhe toke e bashkise , dhe nese privati zgjedh nje ndertues shteti nuk e detyron dot ta ndryshoje. Por shteti i ka te gjitha mekanizmat qe te behet njesh me privatin dhe te veprojne si nje grupim i vetem ne diskutimet , negociatat , marrveshjet me firmat ndertuese ne menyre qe te merret me e mira , por kjo behet me konkurs.
