[www.inewsguyana.com] – Opposition Leader David Granger’s hopes were dashed when Leader of the minority Parliamentary Opposition – the Alliance for Change (AFC) – Khemraj Ramjattan and AFC Executive Member, Moses Nagamoottoo refused to attend a rally to which they were invited to on Friday last.

Granger told iNews this morning that he was disappointed since he had hoped that either Ramjattan or Nagamootoo would have attended the rally, organized by his Party – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) – condemning President Donald Ramotar’s Decision to prorogue Parliament ahead of a debate on a No Confidence Motion against his administration.

“When we had decided that we were going to invite the AFC, I had hoped that Nagamootoo and Ramjattan would have been there at the rally and participated,” he said; adding that “this can no longer be seen as a Party struggle but national movement to bring about better governance in the country.”

In response to some of his supporters on Facebook who criticized him for staying away from the rally, the AFC Leader explained that his attendance at the rally would have been “spun and twisted by the propagandists in the PPP,” and that he did not want to be on the platform of an opposing Party.

This this end, Granger said he is personally not offended by Ramjattan’s statements.

“Ramjattan knows what’s best for his Party and I wouldn’t criticize his decision… in any event the rally was held, the AFC attended and the remarks resonated with the entire audience of several thousand Guyanese.”

Present at the joint rally was Chairman of the AFC, Nigel Hughes and General Secretary, David Patterson, who both shared the platform with the APNU Leader.

Also present at the rally were Members of Parliament Cathy Hughes, Valerie Garida Lowe and Trevor Williams.

It should be noted that both Nagamootoo and Ramjattan were once members of the ruling People’s Progressive Party (PPP) but left after several disagreements.

Nagamootoo was reportedly engaged in a social media meeting at the time of the rally.

  4. “No surprise Nigel Hughes was there because all Guyanese know he is a PNC thug in AFC clothing.”

    Wow!!! Take your extracted quote and multiply it thousands of times to represent the propaganda lines that would have spewed from the PPP machinery if Ramjattan or Nagamootoo had showed up and you will understand Ramjattan’s point.

  5. Not only Granger was disappointed, I understand Nigel Hughes, Tratmaan (Ramjattan’s own brother), Cathy Hughes and Roopnarine were also disappointed. No surprise Nigel Hughes was there because all Guyanese know he is a PNC thug in AFC clothing. Ramjattan and his colleague Nagamootoo are caught between a rock and a hard place. Here is a man who has run out of excuses . He said he didn’t go because it would’ve been, quote: “spun and twisted by the propagandists in the PPP,”. The PPP can now control Ramjattan’s movements. What a pathetic excuse and sad situation.

    Quote from Granger: “I had hoped that Nagamootoo and Ramjattan would have been there at the rally and participated,” he said; adding that “this can no longer be seen as a Party struggle but national movement to bring about better governance in the country.”

    Granger is a nitwit, he will never get it. Ramjattan and Nagamootoo were/are never interested in any kind of “national movement” or struggle for anyone. They continue to occupy the political platform because of personal grievances with the PPP, it has nothing to do with the Guyanese people. The task of AFC winning an election is almost impossible. They are fighting for themselves only and will never join forces with the PNC, because both of them have common sense.
