CULIACÁN._ Do not be intimidated and continue in their fight against
crime, deputies asked the Governor Mario Lopez Valdez.

Zazueta Cenovio Ruiz, coordinator of the PRI in Congress, did not
doubt that the attack on Wednesday at the company-owned hardware
store of Governor López Valdez, was an act aimed at the Executive.

The Governor's challenge, he said, is not to be intimidated.
"It's a very focused aggression towards him, everyone that has a bit
of common sense understands, I think in that sense the solidarity of
the deputies, the solidarity of the PRI will be present."

He said you can not endorse aggression in the company of Lopez Valdez
hardware store, where died one of the employees, was the arrest of a
group of kidnappers.

It's a targeted attack, reiterated Zazueta Ruiz, by the way in which
the Group operates.
"Of course, the way they operate, reach, attack for no reason, on
fire, evidently agrees that is the day of his birthday, is an act
evidently very focused."

The deputy of the PT, Ezequiel Reynoso Esparza, seen in the company's
attack on the Governor, an impotence of the crooks, because they feel
"That way they want to attack the Governor or his property, so I
interpret it, is an inability of these people."

Asked the authorities to arrive in the latest research implications.
"No fair, that they are cowardly acts against employees, against
workers who have nothing to do with things."

Reynoso Esparza, the Governor proposed to speed up investigations and
that the Governor not be afraid.

"The state role is the safety of the citizens where the state be
dismayed, where the state says it takes steps backwards in the
defense of citizens and we are lost ... no turning back."

Felton Carlos Gonzalez, coordinator of the deputies of the PAN, said
it appears that was an attempt to intimidate.
"Thinking as a citizen rather than as a deputy, was apparently quite
deliberately, it was a very cowardly attack where unfortunately died
an innocent person that his only sin, his only crime was to work at
that establishment and be there at the time, but it appears that an
attempt to intimidate. "
