"It is not possible to do such a thing. I think there are definitely people in state that they realize that it must be cancelled,” Hrant Bagratyan replied. “At this moment people are demanding cancellation. What kind of measures can the government take, except what it has already done: audit, compensation at the expense of budget?” a journalist asked. “I can say what the government can’t do, for example, stop approving the tariff” Hrant Bagratyan answered. According to him, this way people struggle can succeed.
