As a result of two-day strike of tube train drivers, Tbilisi City Hall losses made up 44 000 GEL, Vice Mayor of Tbilisi Irakli Khmaladze said.
The mentioned figure does not include losses of free passage at municipal transport for two days. Total losses may hit 100 000 GEL, Khmaladze added.
“I would not say free passage costs are losses. I would not say the funds spent on public welfare are losses. We spend 40% of our budget on social programs and these expenditures are not losses. They are target expenditures on behalf of our population”, Khmaladze noted.
