Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov expressed his surprise that the construction of a dolphinarium had been by the previous government in the project for the Skobeleva Mayka road junction in the country's second largest city of Plovdiv.

"I knew that Maritsa is the largest river, but I was unaware that there were dolphins swimming in it. We could very well promise that there will be dolphins ahead of the elections, but unlike others, we keep our promises," Borisov jokingly commented on Friday, when he opened the road junction six months in advance.. He referred to the Maritsa river that passes nearby.

Recently appointed Regional Development Minister Lilyana Pavlova said she hoped the dolphinarium becomes a reality some day.

The Prime Minister further promised that the construction of Plovdiv's outer ring-road leading to the nearby town of Asenovgrad will begin soon. He added that the workers who were engaged in the construction of the Skobeleva Mayka road junction will be hired to build parts of the Maritsa highway.

"As you see, we are building Bulgaria right now, so who cares what the opposition is saying," Borisov added, as cited by dariknews.bg.
