Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, earlier today, said he will continue to push for government to reverse its decision to close the Wales sugar estate, even if it means resorting to protest actions with the bereaved sugar workers and their families.
He pointed out that government ignored the recommendations made in the Guyana Sugar Corporation Commission of Inquiry (COI) report by moving ahead with the closure of the Wales Sugar Estate.
According to the COI Report, two commissioners had suggested the closure of the GuySuCo estates. However, the eight other commissioners had advised against it, noting that it would result in dire consequences for the sugar workers particularly at this time during the economic crisis in the country.
On this note, Jagdeo said he will continue push for government to reverse its decision and even if it means resorting to protest actions with the bereaved sugar workers and their families.
Government on Monday confirmed reports that it will be shutting down the Wales Sugar Estate, insisting that it is in the best interest of Guyana.
