NCN and Chronicle should not continue to receive taxpayers’ dollars
It is time the people of Guyana stand to demand that there be no budgetary allocations or subventions for the Guyana Chronicle or the National Communications Network (NCN), as those two entities are used purely as propaganda machines for the PPP/C.
It is for this reason that I propose that the tenth parliament vote to ensure that these two state agencies are not funded or subsidized by the people of Guyana, via their tax dollars. The outputs of these two agencies are primarily geared towards inundating the people of Guyana with PPP/C propaganda. For too long the citizens have been complaining about the politicization of state agencies, and it is time that we use our legislative power to change it. To do less would be to act against the wishes of the electorate and to foster the PPP/C agenda.
It makes no sense to have the money allocated to prop up the PPP/C mouthpieces to enhance the benefits of old age pensions, and public assistance. Let us vote to have the money allocated to spew PPP/C propaganda diverted to Linden to offset the electricity cost of this community that has not seen any major developmental or economic take-off for the last two decades.
It is time that the people, through their representatives, decide how we invest in, and utilize state resources. The last general and regional elections have provided us a unique situation to determine whether we continue to stick with the status quo or make a conscious effort to take the lead and change course.
Will we be coerced and bullied by the PPP/C’s usual psychological ploy? I hope not! State resources belong to the people of Guyana and not to the PPP/C, let us make this reality known!
