[www.inewsguyana.com] – People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Parliamentary representative for Region Two, Cornel Damon opened day three of the 2015 budget in a bashing manner as he went into full attack mode against the APNU+AFC administration.
Damon told the National Assembly that the document presented by Finance Minister, Winston Jordan was an “immature budget that failed to inject benefits for the various regions and sectors in Guyana.”
He said too that the budget was “sloppy and useless….I wonder which planet this Honorable Minister came from with this budget and I believe only Houdini could be able to expend it.”
According to the Parliamentarian, from the time that the APNU+AFC coalition was declared victorious at the May 11 polls, the people of Region Two have been “shouting foul.” He called on the new government to adequately address the issue of the rice sector.
“If rice is not addressed now by the government it spells doom for every sector of region three and region two,” said Damon.
He went on to speak about the crime situation currently affecting Guyana, stating that Vice President Khemraj Ramjattan is incapable of effectively tackling the issue.
“It is impossible for the Honorable member of National Security who represented some of the most dangerous criminals to have any control over the crime situation…Ramjattan must go,” he stated.
To put the icing on the cake, Damon made it clear that the PPP is in full support of Bharrat Jagdeo as Opposition Leader. He stated that the Party is “very confident (Jagdeo) will be the next president of Guyana.”
