Government Members of Parliament stand in solidarity with Priya Manickchand[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC), is calling on the Opposition People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) to take its seat in Parliament and represent the thousands that voted for them.

The Committee in a press statement noted that it has taken note of government’s appointments of public officers and “is of the firm view that the manner in which it is being conducted is in stark contrast of the coalition’s promises of inclusivity.”

The Indian cultural rights body says that “based on the appointments so far, it is clear that only persons from one particular ethnicity are being given the opportunity to serve. Whilst the IAC is cognizant of the government’s right to appoint persons of its choice, the organization believes that ethnic sensitivities cannot be ignored.”

As such, the IAC posited that “this emerging worrisome trend demands more than ever that the elected Opposition PPP/C takes up its seats in the National Assembly without any delays even as it addresses its grievances regarding GECOM and the 2015 elections.”

The IAC recalled that “in congratulating the government following its ascension to office and having noted its willingness to work with the Administration of the day, commended the coalition for the position taken on national unity and the stringent need to strengthen social and racial harmony and the banishment of hatred.”

The organization is urging the government to reexamine its current appointment policies which must be governed by the promises articulated during the campaign.”

The IAC says that while “it remains steadfastly committed to working with the government of the day in helping to build a harmonious society, it will not surrender its right to advocate when it believes that injustice has been meted out to Guyanese.

  1. If the IAC want to see more indian representatives in parliament, then please uproot yourselves and go to India….but somehow I doubt it as you will never be accepted there….false sense of identity…

  2. Did the IAC looked at the appointments under the PPP/C? ….Head of GEA – Indian…Head of GPL….head of NICIL…..Head of GINA, NCN, CEO’S OF 90% OF Govt departments…..all Indians!!!!! IAC must stop putting a racial on everything….

  3. They can’t answer you Side Kick. They were too busy riding the soup train licking behinds and sucking up to Bharrat and Donald and savouring the feeling of we pub tap.

  4. who is you , iac? who is you? you tink apnu -afc get time wid yuh? you try deh ! dah ah you ,iac .dah ah you.

  5. Do you mean like the balance the PPP created during their 23 years? Ryaan Shah, take a hike to India with that racial BS. Ethnicity must never be a consideration for any appointment, especially government ones. Strictly the best qualified person, period!

  6. IAC should the Administration sit on their hands waiting on the PPP to make up their minds before making the appointments. The PPP did not wait to place their people even during their last days in office. Be fair as hard as it nay be for you.
