Nagamootoo, Ramkarran practicing ‘vengeance politics’ to get back at PPP/C – says Rohee

People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) General Secretary, Clement Rohee believes the numerous attacks against the Party from former members, Moses Nagamootoo and Ralph Ramkarran, are all because the two individuals lost the presidential nominations in the past.
Both of them are now being accused of practicing vengeance politics to get back at the PPP/C.
During a news conference on Wednesday, Rohee said Nagamootoo and Ramkarran’s criticisms on Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo’s perceived race baiting comments in New York, are all part of their revenge scheme.
“Vengeance politics will get neither of them anywhere because this is precisely what they are both practicing. Vengeance politics is an attempt to get back at the PPP for them not getting their way, which was to be the presidential candidates of the PPP,” he stated.

According to Rohee, since neither of the two succeeded in “hoodwinking the leadership” of the PPP to support their reasons for being presidential aspirants, they bitterly departed the Party and sought refuge elsewhere. “So Nagamootoo sought refuge in AFC (Alliance For Change) and he sought consolation to get back at the PPP. Then Ramkarran sought his refuge in the media but objectively on the side of the (then) Opposition,” the General Secretary reasoned.
Rohee also posited that the scathing statements made by both individuals on Jagdeo’s utterances are far from credible.
“Both Nagamootoo and Ramkarran do not have credibility when it comes to making the type of analysis and seeking to influence John and Jane public on matters of that type,” Rohee asserted.
Rohee’s remarks were triggered by a recently published article written by Ramkarran on Jagdeo’s statement in New York.

Jagdeo had declared that, “There is an assault on people of Indian origin. There is an assault on supporters of the PPP. What we thought would never return to Guyana, in one short year, has returned with full force and even worse in some regards than the Burnham era.”
In his commentary, Ramkarran said, “This is a wholly new dimension to the PPP’s agenda, namely, its formal and official transformation by Mr Jagdeo into an ethnic party representing exclusively ethnic interests. Cheddi Jagan must be turning in his grave!”
