[www.inewsguyana.com] – Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo has described the government’s salary increase for Parliamentarians and Ministers as “reprehensible,” chiding the David Granger administration for displaying double standards.

Even though the Parliamentarians of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) have clearly stated that they will not accept the increase, it was still added to their cheques.

As such, Jagdeo made it clear that the increase will either be placed in the Treasury or donated to a Charity.

“The PPP Members of Parliament have received the increase and so we are discussing one of two options on how to proceed on this matter; either to return the money to the Treasury with a cheque or to hand it over every month to a charity but definitely the members on our side will not take the increase,” the Opposition Leader told a news conference on Friday, October 23.

He chided the government for implementing the salary increases even though it was them who said the economy was bankrupt upon assuming Office in May 2015.

  1. THE PROBLEM WITH YOU , DENNIS MC KENZIE, AND OTHERS OF YOUR ILK IS THAT YOU FEEL FREE TO MAKE ALL SORTS OF RIDICULUOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THE PPP. BUT NOW YOU HAVE ALL THE RESOURCES AT YOUR DISPOSAL, INCLUDING THOSE THAT ARE INTENATIONALLY BASED . YOU FAIL TO PROVE THAT THESE ALLEGATIONS ARE TRUE. SO YOU WILL CONTNUE TO FOOL YOURSELVES AND YOURSELVES ONLY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES. POOR SOULS!

  2. The PPP party has probably had its fill,when it was in government,so,there is no need to accept little coins that will be like a block of ice in the ocean.Who can double talk like these hypocrites?

  3. DON’T REFUND . THE GREEDY MERCHANTS IN POWER WILL FILL THEIR POCKETS MORE . GIVE TO SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN RENDERED JOBLESS BY THIS DE FACTO REGIME.

  4. REALLY? You’re insulting people’s intelligence if you expect that statement or suggestion has any merit. But, I understand your wanting to believe that all Guyanese are backwards, and cannot or will not realize that this is another one of your GIANT SCAMS you were allowed to pull-off and get away with during your reign.
