[www.inewsguyana.com] – Executive Member of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) Ronald Bulkan has lashed out at Former President Bharrat Jagdeo, saying that Jagdeo should reconsider his damage control campaign and stop taking the Guyanese public for fools.
Jagdeo has been in the public spotlight in recent weeks after he made a comparison between his lifestyle and that of the founder of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), Dr Cheddi Jagan.
Last Saturday, Jagdeo in another statement said that “Cheddi Jagan’s integrity is above board. Cheddi Jagan is a person of high moral standard,” noting that his words have been distorted in the media.
But Bulkan says that Jagdeo has “repulsively sought to make a favourable comparison with his wealth accumulation and the PPP’s founder, the late Dr. Jagan!
Despite these sentiments, Bulkan was clear in stating that the damage done has not affected Jagdeo in the least as he pointed out that the PPP as a political entity has suffered the damage as a result of Jagdeo’s utterances.
Bulkan said that given the Party’s “bare cupboard” it has returned to embracing the Former President for guidance.
“Unfortunately for them, however, he is proving to be a liability, hence the furious attempt at damage control. The PPP will find out, however, that the working class reveres the memory of Dr. Jagan and that they will not take kindly to ANYONE who besmirches his legacy and lifestyle,” said Bulkan.
