[www.inewsguyana.com] – Public Works Minister Robeson Benn on has warned Lindeners to be aware of the female faction of A Partnership For National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) supporters who he claims skins their “bamsies” on supporters of the ruling People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C).
Benn made the statement while speaking at PPP’s rally in Silvertown Linden, on Sunday April 12, where he continued his scathing criticism against Opposition politicians branding them “quasi-military.”
The highlight of Benn’s statement was his verbal chastisement of APNU/AFC Presidential Candidate Brigadier David Granger whom he says is shamefully advocating for equal rights for women.
“Every election time they bring lil children and women to skin their bamsies at us when we talking…every time they come to skin their bamsie we must take out photos and put it on the internet,” he implored the small crowd at Linden.
He told the gathering that he Opposition has plans to reinstitute the National Service adding that the organisation has “dirty details” that he’d rather not elaborate on.
The Minister also confessed that he was a “criminal” but said that he was a criminal for wanting basic necessities liked wheatened flour and split peas during the Burnham era.
Benn noted that Linden has always been under the control of the People’s National Congress but still that Party initiated a process that saw the destruction of several places in the Mining town.
Meanwhile, Cabinet Secretary Dr Roger Luncheon labelled the opposition as “thieves and scamps” as he called on those persons gathered to rally around the PPP.
“Scamps, Vagabonds, thieves…no vision, snitches and tons of ex militants coupled with a set of nonentities are visible on the coalition’s list,” said Luncheon.
In furthering his criticisms against the APNU/AFC, a frail Luncheon described the coalition’s Lists of Candidates as being comprised of “aged no good people from the past…utter lack of the appreciation of the diversity of this country.”
He said that for the Opposition to acquire the reins of government would be suicidal.
“To give them an opportunity is suicide, national suicide we have to drink some gramaxone together,” Luncheon claimed.
He said that Linden and Guyana as a whole has seen tremendous development under the PPP in the past 23 years and now is not the time for that progress to cease.
“We build, we develop, we promote. We provide for progress and when you look at what they have done is sheer destruction…Lick up bruk up…they are actually saying to you, even to their own supporters in linden, screw you – the PNC will prevail,” he added.
He accused the Opposition of writing the book and being the masters of intimidation with a special dislike for Afro-Guyanese within the PPP.
“You can’t teach old dog new tricks and intimidation and bullyism– that is another name for PNC that is another name for APNU that is another name for APNU/AFC and we have to reject it,” he told the crowd,
“After they finish cussing Jagdeo and they finish cussing Ramotar they have nothing else to say, nothing constructive….we have to put these old people out of their misery,” said Luncheon as he noted that APNU/AFC politicians “dribble” in their sleep.
