In another response to the ‘malicious, fictitious and libellous’ article published in today’s Kaieteur News, the Ramroop Group of Companies has released some photos showing the state of the Sanata Complex before its privatisation.
In an invited comment on the vicious attack by the Glenn Lall-owned Kaieteur News, Dr Ranjisinghi ‘Bobby’ Ramroop slammed the newspaper for continuing to peddle lies about his group of companies and the Sanata Complex, pointing out that contrary to the libellous claims being peddled by Lall’s newspaper, the Government did not “spend a single cent” to clean up the Sanata Complex.
Dr Ramroop said, “I want to state categorically that after the lease, the Government of Guyana did not spend a single cent on the cleanup or any other expense that went into rehabilitating what was at that time buildings reverting back to a jungle. Glenn Lall, has been peddling this misinformation and lie since 2008, when we launched the Guyana Times. At this time I think he is struggling for relevance and should get some professional help.”
The following photos were released by the Ramroop Group of Companies, showing the Sanata Complex prior to its privatisation.
The photos show the entrance to the textile production facility of the Sanata complex at the time of privatization; vandalised electrical panels, an old maintenance building, an old access road; the state of the internal textile production areas; the old Sanata Textile Mills canteen.
The Ramroop Group of Companies also pointed out that, at the time of acquisition, the entire Sanata Complex was in a state of disrepair.
“Fences had fallen apart; drains were blocked; roads were inaccessible; vegetation was overgrown; garbage was prevalent; equipment and installations were vandalised beyond repair; the buildings were infested with termites and unfit for occupation; and there was also flooding in some sections despite it being the dry season,” the group recalled.
