[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former Cabinet Secretary, Dr Roger Luncheon says that the air of uncertainty created by the APNU + AFC government is not doing well for Guyana and the government should make its policies on issues pellucid.
Dr Luncheon made the remarks at a press conference at Freedom House on Saturday, July 18, where he criticized the government over the current state of affairs in Guyana.
According to Dr Luncheon, should the government make its stance on certain issues known then the citizenry would best know how to proceed with investments.
“Information is not being provided where it is needed, I don’t know if it is deliberate or not but it contributes to the uncertainties that prevail,” he said.
Pointing to the $10,000 cash grant as an example, he said that many parents are uncertain whether or not they will be receiving these monies and it has caused some amount of discomfort to them.
He also made a nexus to the instances where persons were sent on leave by the administration. The last person sent on leave is the head of the E Governance Project, Alexei Ramotar, the son of former President Donald Ramotar.
According to Dr Luncheon, it would appear as though supporters of the People’s Progressive Party are being made targets.
“The government is cutting off its nose to spoil its face as it pursues this approach to dispense with the services of government employees based on perception that these are PPP people,” Dr Luncheon explained.
He further noted that there is a “creeping dictatorship” which the Guyanese people experience every day, referring to “authoritarianism” by the David Granger led administration.
“This is bothersome, this is worrisome because it smacks of Burnhamism and this is how it started here executive power has decided to trifle with custom practice law and custom,” Dr Luncheon said.
