[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party Civic, (PPP/C) Clement Rohee believes that the combined Opposition Parties are deeply ‘divided’ on the No Confidence Motion’ and it is being played out blatantly in the press.
At the Party’s weekly press conference today, Tuesday, September, 23, Rohee was all smiles as he spoke about the opposite paths the Alliance for Change (AFC) and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) is on.
“Because one seem to be going to the East and another one seems to be going to the West. I think it was the famous Jamaican singer who spoke about war in the East and war in the West…so I am waiting with fainting breath to see how they will end up,” Rohee told a news conference.
The Minister was so overwhelmed with laughter on this matter that he quoted several popular song writers to support his belief of a division between the opposition parties.
According to Rohee, Ramjattan’s claims that “ 90 million pieces of silver was shared out among three MPs from A Partnership for National Unity would have been done behind closed doors if the two sides were seeing eye to eye on the ‘No Confidence’ Motion.”
Rohee noted that Ramjattan’s interaction with Opposition Leader, David Granger is a clear indication of this.
“He would have called Mr. Granger or walked across to Hadfield Street and say look I have this information on three of your MPs.”
Rohee then laughed heartily and said the two Political Parties have similarities of several popular Indian and English soap opera shows.
“It’s so interesting to see what is unfolding here.”
He even placed himself in Ramjattan’s shoes and said “I would have gone and told Mr. Granger who were the three persons.”
“These two Parties to me seem to be on a collision course and you know the PPP is in a very advantageous position…we just sit back and watch these two individuals sort their business out and then we will walk away with the prize.”
The laughter continued.
It was only recently that Leader of the AFC Khemraj Ramjattan made the startling announcement that the PPP/C approached three opposition MPs with $30M each to vote against the pending no confidence motion. However, Government was quick to dispel this as a malicious lie against the Party by Ramjattan.
Granger also dispelled the accusations and stated that none of its Parliamentarians were involved and hinted that Ramjattan might have fabricated the story.
Ramjattan has since refused to reveal the names of the MPs.
