Even though A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) is not taking the blame for the so called death of the Amaila Falls Hydropower Project, Cabinet Secretary Dr. Roger Luncheon says that the Guyanese people are aware of who is responsible for project no longer moving forward.
Last week, Leader of the APNU David Granger stated that it is impossible to blame the main opposition for the death of the project.
In response to this, Dr. Luncheon at his post cabinet media briefing stated, “I believe Mr. Granger seems to be stretching the imagination and the credibility of the Guyanese people. How could you conceivably, over the years and particularly 2013, soliciting engagements with the government and stakeholders about this project and requesting information and making pronouncements, voting against the project and a day like today absolving themselves…”
Dr. Luncheon went on to note, “Mr. Granger engages in an act of delusion, self-delusion if he does feel that his mere protestations that we are not to blame, indeed resonates among Guyanese.”
He added, “We know who killed this project and we know how they did it. We know that and I suppose he could continue protesting his and APNU’s innocence that is merely flying in the face of the wind as he tries to extricate himself and his party and the opposition for being responsible for this outcome. We know that they should be condemned and will be condemned for the loss of this opportunity to transform Guyana, its economy and the lives of the Guyanese people. We know who is to blame,” Dr. Luncheon told reporters.
He explained that the remaining stakeholders who had an interest in the project have also signaled their intention of withdrawing from this specific design of the Amaila Falls Hydro Project.
