[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party said today, in a statement, that is not surprised at the Leader of the Opposition David Granger’s recent statements that, if he and his Party were to become the administration, he would punish persons “who have been alleged to have committed illegal or criminal acts.”
The PPP says it is quite certain that Granger is referring to persons in the PPP/C administrations, past and present, who he and his Opposition colleagues allege to have committed wrongdoings.
“The PPP notes too that Mr. Granger is fixated on immediate past President, Bharrat Jagdeo, and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh,” the statement noted.
The PPP says it is taking this warning and threat seriously since this is not the first time the leaders of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the PNC have issued such threats to Guyanese who have given yeoman service to Guyana.
“Such threats not only put investments for job creation at risk, but clearly expose the hypocritical nature of the PNC. It must be recalled that during the last electoral campaign, Leaders of that Party articulated position to attract investors and accused the government of not doing enough to encourage foreign investments. These irresponsible sentiments expressed are further demonstrative of the PNC’s inability to change and its engrained proclivity to fool Guyanese.”
The PPP added that both Granger and Greenidge are not only using their positions to whip up xenophobic hysteria, but are signaling that if ever they were to become the administration, they would unleash vengeance against anyone they perceive to be associated with the PPP and the PPP/C administration.
“Given the history of that Party, these threats can only be seen as tantamount to the Demerara River flowing red with blood should the APNU and PNC come to power.”
Clearly, the PNC methods of instilling fear have not changed, PPP said; adding that these threats were not confined to what was already alluded to, but extended by PNC bloggers who have called on local businesses to put up signs that the PPP must go.
“Failure by these businesses to comply with the PNC threats would result in a boycott which that Party would advocate. This can only be seen as blatant extortion by a political Party which claims to have the interest of people at heart; again another example of wanton hypocrisy.”
The PPP reminds all Guyanese to listen and look closely at the utterances coming from the Opposition camps. These utterances are once again exposing the true and old colours of the PNC.
