[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of the Alliance For Change (AFC), Khemraj Ramjattan has come in for heavy criticisms from members of the public, especially some of his supporters for staying away from the rally organized by A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and which was attended by AFC members.

Notably absent as well from the rally on Friday last at Square of Revolution was AFC Executive Member, Moses Nagamootoo, who was reportedly engaged in a social media meeting at the time of the rally.

In response to some of his supporters on Facebook on Sunday, November 15, the AFC Leader explained that his attendance at the rally would have been “spun and twisted by the propagandists in the PPP,” and that he did not want to be on the platform of an opposing Party.

“The liberal democratic nature of the AFC allows a subjective decision to be made by leaders and members of this Party on particular issue of importance to them. It is a sort of conscience vote on the matter.

“I personally felt that knowing how it will be spun and twisted by the propagandists in the PPP, it would not be wise to attend. My presence there also would have been inconsistent with my personal position that I will not want to be on an opposing party’s platform. If the platform was say an anti-dictatorial front platform, I certainly would have been there. But that is my personal position which ought to be respected for what its worth. Other members and leaders can have their individual approaches,” Ramjattan wrote on Facebook in response to a question.

Present at the joint rally was Chairman of the AFC, Nigel Hughes and General Secretary, David Patterson, who both shared the platform with APNU’s Leader, David Granger.

Also present at the rally were Members of Parliament Cathy Hughes, Valerie Garida Lowe and Trevor Williams.

It should be noted that both Nagamootoo and Ramjattan were once members of the ruling People’s Progressive Party (PPP) but left after several disagreements.

As of recent, there were talks of the AFC merging with the APNU, an idea which Opposition Leader Granger welcomes, but one which Ramjattan is reluctant to consider.

Ramjattan in his explanation on Facebook noted that the biggest blunder the APNU and AFC can make at this point, in their individual objective to displace the PPP, is to merge.

“Apart from the huge challenges and dilemmas which will have to be confronted and surmounted in relation to a host of administrative issues, the serious error behind such a merger will be the dissolution of the AFC in the eyes of non-supporters of APNU, largely East Indians but not exclusively them.”

He further noted, “The AFC is the only Party now in Guyana, because of our still continuing polarized, ethnicised voting patterns, which can do major destruction to the PPP strongholds!”

Ramjattan and Nagamootoo have been leading the charge with the No Confidence Motion against the government, which has since caused President Donald Ramotar to prorogue the Parliament.

  1. Mr. Mohansingh, you seems to know a thing or two.can you please repeat the facts again. Did you say nineteen ballot boxes? Thank you! Come on now goat head answer that. Where are the elements with little brain?

  2. KYATTMAN Ramjattan AND NAGAMOOTTO ARE FOOLS BUT NOT THAT FOOLISH..
    What they really want is to place power in the hands of PNC since they know they can place a ring in PNC leaders nose to get them to do what they want.
    AFC money dried up big time..Their big money donor Badall have to compete with Marriott. No more money there for AFC. The other major big money donor KN Glen Lall but he up to his craw in legal wranglings which is looking like he cant get out of..See his battery of Lawyers Lately? No money there for AFC.
    Ramjattan and Nagamootto took in so much money and perhaps the people are asking about their money.
    So they figure out if they can get PNC in to rule they can in turn rule PNC and get back all that money and billions more.

  3. Ramjattan,and shut u so and so mouthmootoo,can consider themselves lucky that the ppp didn’t get to count the 19 ballot boxes otherwise they would have licking Granger haul your ass,

    Put Ramjattan and Moses to form their own party and u can b assured they can’t even win a toilet seat

  4. Mr Ramjattan:
    You and your side kick Nagamootoo is fooling no one.
    You and APNU is one and the same.
    If the Indians see you with the blacks, it is no good.
    Just fool them all over again.
    The Indians must hold fast
    Trust me the BURNHAMITES will use their boot all over again.
    Thank you very much AFC.
    You are the reincarnation of Peter D’Aguiar United Force (UF).
    You people are shameless liars.

  5. AFC Nagamoottoo and AC Ramjattan should be asked why they stayed away and why they are silent from the Agricola atrocity on east indians that was orchestrated by their AFC buddy Nugel Hughes

    its your gola not their goal..

  9. Ramjattan is clearly not for the black people, he seriously considered his supporters largely the Indo Guyanese, who would have question his being at the RAllY as we clearly read only the Blacks that are part of AFC were here i’m highly ASHAMED of this…..another thing Does any one knows why Rishee Thakur left AFC, it was because for this same behavior, AFC is also condoning RACISM in SUPPORTERS

  10. Ramjattan is a dead clown. He didn’t go to the ralley because it would look bad for his supporters that are indo guyanese. Guyana has to change there Damn backwards racist political mindset. I wish we could get rid of all those old minded fools that run PPP, APNU, and AFC.

  11. That is why leader of AFC you got to do a better job at making in roads into the PPP/C strongholds. We need you for this upcoming election to be able to garner more that 7 seats we need you with at least 15 seats of which all 15 would have come from the PPP/C strong hold areas.n AFC You have got a lot of goals to reach so Mr. R please start your journey. Guyanese are all depending on you to help dismantle the PPP/C government.
