General Secretary of the Party, Clement Rohee told a news conference today that these are all massive projects designed to modernize country and upgrade the quality of life of the Guyanese people.
He said that the Alliance For Change (AFC) and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) are attacking the projects in a deliberate and calculated manner.
“Which party that truly and genuinely cares for the well being of the Guyanese people would stand in the way of projects such as the Amalia Falls Hydro-electric power which is designed to provide the Guyanese people with cheap and reliable power while at the same time boosting the competiveness of the country’s manufacturing sector?”
Rohee further noted, “Which caring political party would block the construction of a Specialty Hospital which is intended to provide specialized medical care to the Guyanese people at affordable costs?”
“Which political party worth its salt would refuse to provide parliamentary support to the expansion and modernization of its international airport and a spanking and modern Marriot Hotel which would make Guyana more tourism friendly and serve to attract more visitors to the country?”
The General Secretary noted that the “PNC and its political acolytes have clearly embraced an approach to politics that is clearly anti-national and anti-people. It has declared its willingness to sacrifice the good of the country on the altar of narrow partisan self interest. Its political behaviour can at best be described as infantile which is not only dysfunctional but reactionary and destructive in terms of advancing our national patrimony.”
He said the PNC lacks the moral right to pronounce on, much less to criticize the current administration “after having reduced this country to a laughing stock in the region and beyond. Because of mismanagement and incompetence billions of dollars went down the drains on several in conceived projects which never saw the light of day.”
