[www.inewsguyana.com] – Prime Ministerial Candidate for A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change coalition, Moses Nagamootoo launched a stinging attack against incumbent President Donald Ramotar and former President Bharrat Jagdeo during his address to thousands of supporters at Whim, Corentyne Berbice.
He said Ramotar is being overshadowed by the former President, whom he described as being fake.
“Everybody knows Ramotar is only the guy who cuts ribbon, shakes hands and kisses babies… but he is not the real President…could the real Guyanese President stand up? He makes all the excuses for corruption and failed projects in Guyana but is overshadowed by a fake/counterfeit within the PPP who masquerades as the President and that’s Bharrat Jagdeo,” Nagamootoo said.
Nagamootoo, a former PPP Member, described Jagdeo as a hypocrite and criticized him for comparing his home with that of PPP founder, Dr Cheddi Jagan.
According to Nagamootoo, Guyana has to “fetch Jagdeo like goodies” but the new administration will “cut out the waste, the extravagance and the corruption.”
Meanwhile, he said that within the first 100 days in office, the coalition intends to establish a code of conduct for ministers, call Local Government Elections, increase public servants salary by 10 percent across the board and increase old age pension to $15,000.
He also noted that that after a thorough investigation, the coalition government would reduce the cost to cross the Berbice Bridge by half.
He told the Whim rally that he is “back home with clean hands and a clear conscience,” given the fact that he grew up in Whim.
