[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) is upset with the recent publishing of a WikiLeaks cable between the US Embassy and Washington that labels President David Granger a racist.
The 30-year-old cable which surfaced on the Wikileaks website assess Granger while he was a Major in the Guyana Defence Force and suggests that the President had racial inclinations.
The PNCR, led by Granger however is seeking to dismiss the allegations.
“The People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) dismisses the malicious publication of a United States (US) diplomatic cable dated June 27, 1974, which labels the Leader of our Party and President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, His Excellency Brigadier David A. Granger a racist,” a release stated.
The Party says that viewed in the context of the Cold War, the cable’s accusation with no supporting foundational evidence has no place in mainstream media.
“President David Granger has dedicated his entire working life to public service and at all times a major pillar of his written works and his personal philosophy has been the pursuit of national unity. As Leader of the PNCR, Brigadier Granger has articulated on numerous occasions that national unity is an imperative in Guyana’s current fragile political, social and economic circumstances.”
It was noted that President Granger is on record, that in a plural society like Guyana’s, there is a clear choice between the uplifting benefits of cooperation and the downside of destructive political competition.
“President Granger’s personal life and his life works clearly debunks this malicious and unfounded claim. The PNCR questions the wisdom of the publication of this dated US Diplomatic Cable without a right of reply or any other supporting evidence.”
