[www.inewsguyana.com] – The ruling People’s Progressive Party/Civic has dismissed concerns about the “scare tactic” being used on its campaign stage.
This issue stemmed from the comments made by Former President Bharrat Jagdeo, who, referring to the opposition coalition, told the Albion Rally on April 19, that “when they link up with the military and come into your homes and start kicking the doors down and when they come after you, who is going to be there?”
In response, General Secretary of the Party, Clement Rohee in turn questioned the media about the term “scare tactic” being used to describe Jagdeo’s message.
He also went on to state that anyone at the PPP rallies would see the “tremendous and tumultuous” welcome Jagdeo receives at every single rally adding that it “must mean something.”
Rohee then supplied that “it means that the man is very popular, it means that the people like him … probably adore and love him too….so when he speaks, they pay very close attention to what he has to say. And I don’t think they hate him for what he says; I think they probably love him more for what he has to say.”
When pressed on whether the Party endorses the “scare tactic”, Rohee offered that while he does not know about the “so called scare tactic”, he does know that Jagdeo “speaks very frankly and openly to his people and the people love what he says…so I don’t know about this branding about scare tactic.”
Rohee also suggested that Jagdeo will make himself available to the media to explain himself, as he [Rohee] cannot speak for the former president.
