[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Executive, now Alliance for Change (AFC) member, Moses Nagamootoo has accused the ruling Party of not only adopting but surpassing the “paramountcy of the Party” doctrine reportedly practiced by former President, the late Linden F. S. Burnham.

A very wounding statement it is, since the PPP has extensively and historically condemned the dogma practiced by the then People’s National Congress (PNC) government which purportedly placed the importance of the Party above that of the State.

“The PPP surpassed Burnham as it has put its stamp not only on the state and crony media but on the Foreign Service, Permanent Secretary and on Regional Executive powers,” he told a news conference today, Thursday, November 27.

Nagamootoo, like his Opposition counterpart – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) – has accused the governing Party of embarking on illegal campaigns to create ethnic and geographical apartheid in Guyana.

He made reference to the once PPP controlled Berbice County; saying the Party has been stirring anti-African fears in the Indo – Guyanese dominated area.

Nagamootoo also rebuked the local daily Guyana Times; calling the newspaper a “Pro-PPP Rag.” He said the papers have confirmed what Guyanese knew all the time regarding PPP’s racist, false and mischievous propaganda.

The AFC challenged anyone with information that can prove that its members have or will team up with the APNU.

“We repeat our position; AFC has not agreed to form a pre-electoral coalition with APNU but we have decided to work with APNU and all other patriotic, political, business, labor, religious, human rights, women, youth… in a broad fight against the PPP minority regime.”

AFC has warned that any person or organization that stirs up racial hatred is guilty of a criminal offence and has called on the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) and the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to mount an investigation into its claims of the PPP’s resort to racism and racial hatred in Berbice.

Nagamootoo said what is more disturbing, according to “the self-anointed beacon of truth” – Guyana Times, is that both the President and Prime Minister have been involved in partisan activities to recapture lost votes in Berbice “in much the same way as serfs were sought after in Nikolai Gogol’s epic novel: Dead Souls.”

He accused the Executive of abusing Presidential privileges even as he warned that the racist campaign of the PPP would further undermine the social fabric of Guyana and excite racial insecurity and fear throughout Guyana.

  1. WILD SWEEPING STATEMENTS FROM PASSIAN MAAN NAGAMOOTOO[ALWAYS VEX]. WHY NOT GIVE EVEN ONE INSTANCE? BY THE WAY, DO YOU STILL CURSE YOUR GRANDSON AND TELL HIM TO SHUT HIS “SO AND SO MOUTH”? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MILLIONS YOU COLLECTED FROM THE BERBICE RIVER BRIDGE PROJECT,MR. NAGAMOOTOO BBM[BERBICE BRIDGE MILLIONAIRE]?

  2. Hey Naga, What you know about adopt? The father of the Nation mistakenly adopt you and now you have became a runaway child (traitor). You are not qualified to speak for the PPP. You think it’s okay to lick Granger plate and bring the same dirty tongue under our soup bowl? You think we the majority will listen to your lies, while you’re in bed with the PNC? Didn’t you and your AFC party desperately tried to kill the tenth Parliament? You will never make it to the top, not in your life time. Naga bottom of the barrel is where you belong. Naga, Don’t be fooled, AFC will never, ever formed the Government. It’s either the PPP or the PNC. Can you handle the truth? We the Majority have been watching you the traitor, Ramjattan the judas, and Hughes who is suffering with GET RICH QUICK SYNDROME.

  3. The bottom line is that Nagamootoo wants to be President at all costs. But it won’t happen as he does not have the support. So he taking out his spite on the PPP.

  4. Go AFC 16th day of the dictatorship one party rule of Guyana by PPP/C Government. Your turn now AFC, do some damage on the Indian base supporters of the PPP/C in Guyana. Your said it is possible now do the possible.
