The former president pointed out the elimination of other economic and social projects by the de facto government. In the same case is the Metropolitan Train, a public and ecological work with a cost of US$447 million, intending to link the administrative centers of Sacaba, Cercado –in Cochabamba- Colcarpihua, Quillacolo, Vinto, and Sipe Sipe.  

The move was announced on February the 13, two days after the current administration eliminated the payment of the Juana Azurduy Bond, created by Morales in 2009 on behalf of pregnant women, mothers and babies under two years old. This program has benefited 2.6 million mothers and minors, since its creation in 2018. It demanded a payment of US$164 million, according to official sources.

Also, Áñez announced the possible suspension of the nuclear center alleging a supposed constitutional violation. The investment was $351 million with the contracted Russian group Rosatom. 

In his statement, Morales also pointed out the expulsion of the Cuban doctors and the terrible consequences of that decision, like the collapse of the hospitals facing the lack of personnel.

In the education field, the former president also said that there are no new projects for 2020 and accuses the political right-wing in the country of privatizing the social programs his administration implemented.  

Some news agencies, like Prensa Latina, said that the authorities under Áñez management actions mainly discriminate against the Bolivian people.
