So much discord to our nation

So much discord to our nation

first_imgDear Editor,President Granger in his Christmas message expressed that “Guyana is our motherland” and reminded Guyanese that they have a collective duty to ensure they keep their homeland free from disaffection and discord. But by his own action, he is the main reason for the disaffection and discord.How can a President sit in his chair and approve the borrowing of US$10 million from the Caribbean Development Bank and then apply those funds to four Afro-Guyanese villages in a nation that also included Amerindians and East Indians?(see evidence – http://www.stabroeknews.com/2016/news/stories/12/15/us10m-cdf-loan-grant-pact-revitalise-farming-four-neglected-villages/).How can a President sit in his chair and approve 38 national scholarships for scholars but less than 10 of those persons were certified scholars based on their passes at the CSEC exams? The other 28 are from Congress Place – political persons who have no place on the list of Guyana scholars because they did not earn the distinctions required to be on that list. They should all have been given People’s National Congress (PNC) scholarships, funded by party funds, not national scholarships. All the Granger Government has done is diluted the efforts of these 10 young children who passed their four and five subjects at the A Levels with distinction. But to add salt to the wound, only one of the 28 persons from Congress Place who got this scholarship was an East Indian and none were Amerindians.That East Indian girl only earned her spot because of nepotism, she is the daughter of the sitting Education Minister. Isn’t this the same thing Donald Ramotar did for his children? If it was wrong then, why is it not wrong now?Why make sacrifices so the PNC cabal can use all those funds to feed only one set of mouths rather than all mouths.Shame on Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo and Vice President Carl Greenidge who have experience in Government and who ought to know better but did nothing to stop this open abuse of power.They both served in previous Governments but allowed some G$10 million per year of these funds to be distributed to their Cabinet colleagues, making them into part-time Ministers on a full-time salary. Shame on you both for failing to guide these novices in the Administration to do the right thing, the just thing, the proper thing. Nobody is against the PNC giving its members scholarship but not at the expense of the State. Going forward, half the time these two Ministers (Furguson and Henry) will be out of the country on fully paid leave away at school learning how to be a Minister.Regards,Surujdai Lilmohanlast_img read more
