[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) is calling on the Opposition People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) to support the new APNU+AFC government, given the fact that the Party has been at the forefront of the struggle for political, economic, social and national development in Guyana.
A statement from the Indian Body on Tuesday, June 16 noted that the PPP/C will always have a role in the development of Guyana and therefore, they should not embark on a policy of non – cooperation towards the new government.
“The IAC believes, however that in 2015, the PPP should not embark upon a policy of non-cooperation and civil disobedience following the recently held general and regional elections but should pursue one of critical support for the new administration.
“The IAC believes that the PPP should give critical support to the APNU+AFC Coalition government for any progressive measure related to those activities, programs and policies that would achieve national cohesion under the “One Nation” rubric of national development but oppose any reactionary moves and criticize all shortcomings,” the statement noted.
The statement further called on the PPP to defend Guyana’s territorial integrity against Venezuela’s threat.
“The IAC calls upon the PPP to pursue these initiatives immediately in order to defend the national interest as defined in terms of independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity against the threat of external interference by Venezuela.”
The IAC also reiterated its call for the PPP/C to take its 32 seats in the National Assembly “and present a united front with the coalition government against the brazenly immoral claims of belligerent Venezuela.”
“The IAC urges the PPP to understand that the destabilization of the APNU+AFC Coalition government by external forces would automatically lead to the demise of the former itself,” the IAC statement concluded.
