[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) says it has noted with disgust the continuing attacks on the state media and media houses perceived to be friendly to the ruling PPP/C administration.
General Secretary of the PPP, Clement Rohee told a news conference on Monday, November 17 that “it seems that the only information that is considered acceptable and newsworthy by APNU is that which is anti-PPP or anti-government. This explains its obsession against sections of the media and its hysterical call for a boycott of those media outlets that refuse to play up to their nefarious agenda.”
During its rally at Square of the Revolution on Friday, November 14, APNU Member and Parliamentarian, Dr Rupert Roopnarine called on Guyanese to boycott the state controlled National Communications Network (NCN) and the Guyana Chronicle newspaper.
He also chided privately operated Guyana Times and told citizens not to purchase the local daily.
In response, the PPP says it is encouraging all Guyanese to ignore such calls “which are clearly misdirected and are much more relevant to the opposition media.”
