[www.inewsguyana.com] – APNU+AFC Coalition candidate, Khemraj Ramjattan has criticized the recently released PPP/C manifesto as a compendium of emptiness.
A press statement from the Opposition coalition quoted Ramjattan as saying, “This is a hollow document, made up of empty promises, rhetoric and gimmickry.”
It should be noted that the coalition is yet to release their manifesto.
“And above all, the cheap talk about what they will do about corruption bares them naked. Their omission to actually do anything about the sellout of the people’s patrimony in our forest and mining sectors and the massive corruption in procurement of goods and services, makes the manifesto bereft of any meaning and credibility,” Ramjattan asserted.
According to the press release, “The PPP has a record of outstanding failure. They have failed to deliver on reduced taxation, they have failed to hold Local Government Elections in 20 years, the fibre optic cable project has been a $3.6B failure, they have failed to establish the Public Procurement Commission, they have failed the sugar industry, they have failed the rice industry.”
In the release, Ramjattan said that the people of Guyana will not be fooled.
“Now they rehash old promises and slap them alongside some new empty promises in an attempt to dupe the Guyanese people. But the people of Guyana will no longer be fooled. It is time for change and this PPP/C government has just a few more days in office before they face the formal rejection from the people at the ballot box,” Ramjattan declared.
Ramjattan said too that the PPP/C manifesto is the most glaring evidence yet that the Party is devoid of ideas for the genuine development of Guyana and all its people.
According to the release, the APNU+AFC Coalition joint manifesto will be formally released in the coming week.
Ramjattan said the document is thorough and represents an all-encompassing plan for the real development of Guyana which caters to all Guyanese.
