Veliaj recounts the conversation: The good advice Luan Hajdaraga gave me
From the new school "Luan Hajdaraga", which opened its doors this year for 650 students in the area of ??Fresk, the mayor Erion Veliaj also recalled a conversation with the former socialist deputy, who passed away 4 years ago. Among other things, Veliaj said that the former diplomat Hajdaraga advised him on the first day when he ran for the Municipality of Tirana, that the best answer to all accusations and political attacks is through work.
"Even though the campaign has not started yet, we will have time to talk about who keeps his word, who has done 0 schools, and who has done 40 such. I remember my first conversation with Luan Hajdaragës, when I had just been nominated as a candidate for the Municipality of Tirana, and Pandi Majko said to me: Come, let's have a coffee with Professor Luan, before going to the assembly. In that conversation Professor Luani told me: "Look, you're very good like that, but maybe you should ignore some things when you start work." "How come, professor" - I told him - "it seems to me a great injustice when someone slanders". Now that the campaign is approaching, the same barrage of slander and slander begins. I remember him telling me: "If you work well, the work will speak for itself." If you didn't work, you will also fight with them". I have not forgotten this advice and I believe that even today it is probably one of the simplest tips, but also the best they have given me. This advice has guided me everywhere: Work because the work, these schools, the promises kept, speak more than the debates and analysts' counters taken together", recalled Veliaj.
