[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) on Thursday, June 18 met with President David Granger where several issues relating to the stability of ethnic cultures in Guyana were raised.
According to a press statement from the IAC, it had “written to the elected representatives of the people of Guyana, specifically the APNU + AFC government and the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), to seek an audience to discuss issues which it considers to be of importance to its constituent and Guyanese in general.”
It noted that “foremost among the issues are: the immediate composition of the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC); an immediate halt to targeting of Indo-Guyanese officials at various Levels of State based on reported cases; crime and the creation of an atmosphere of ethnic inclusiveness.”
In the statement, the IAC states that the meeting was extremely cordial and frank and was conducted in an atmosphere of “what appears to be a genuine effort to address the concerns raised. The IAC is heartened at this.”
“The IAC also anticipates that very shortly the PPP would indicate its availability for the audience requested. The IAC would continue to endeavour to stringently deliver its mandate regarding the representation of Guyanese.”
