“We no longer want the federal government to continue making fun of the Mayan people, they have to comply with us or there will be no Maya Train,” added the also a federal representative candidate for the Fuerza por Mexico political party.
Shouting, Margarita Torres expressed her annoyance before representatives of the media after the President left Maxcanu at the end of the event, refusing to listen to Margarita Torres Sansores.

Faced with the aggression that Margarita Torres suffered by not allowing her to approach the President, she said out loud that “if necessary, blood will flow.”
