What qualifies this man to be the Chairman of Guysuco?
Recently, it was reported that Mr. Raj Singh is the Chairman of Guysuco and travels to Guyana on a monthly basis with all expenses paid, enjoying a lot of succor on the backs of the Guyanese people; editor, I wonder when the PPP government will come to their senses and stop this largesse to friends like Singh , who definitely does not deserve it. And furthermore, Raj Singh was a partner in the New Global Consults which was the main entity involved in the famous law books scam in New York some years ago -a deal which saw a lot of Guyanese taxpayers money go down the drain. By the way, the person who signed that dubious deal on behalf of the Government of Guyana was Hydar Ally, now an “advisor” to the President and an avid defender of majoritarian rule in Guyana. Mr.Raj Singh is also a close friend of Ed Ahmed, a man who has been indicted by the United States government on a number of serious charges and faces years in prison if found guilty; as a matter of fact, ”Prof” Singh brought Ed Ahmed into the political fray in New York as a contact person for PPP fundraising!
What qualifies this man to be the Chairman of Guysuco? Is it because he’s been the head of the Association of Concerned Guyanese(ACG)-a PPP group in New York for the longest while, which has had a history of keeping Guyanese of African descent out? What business company has he been Chairman of before in the USA because he has never run anything here? How can he be Chairman of Guysuco when he does not live here? How good a friend is he of former president Jagdeo and he was put there by Jagdeo and sat there while Guysuco fell apart? Why should Guyanese taxpayers feed him when there are much more qualified persons right here in Guyana?
Editor, the more I live in Guyana , the more I am amazed at the brazen attitudes some people have towards the Guyanese people. Doesn’t Raj Singh have a conscience and fess up that he ‘s really not qualified to chair any corporation anywhere and at anytime; this man is showing us sheer “eye-pass” and for Guyanese to accept nonsense like this is beyond me. We all expected real changes with Mr. Ramotar but when one looks at Raj Singh and the “sweeties” he’s getting , we can see the same old patterns of rule which we hoped would change. The opposition parties should have a closer look at Raj Singh and he should be made to appear before a select committee to answer personal questions and to relate his qualifications for this all important job as Chairman of Guysuco; Parliament should also examine his monetary package and expenditures on his behalf by Guysuco-I bet there’s a crocodile under the carpet and Mr.Jagdeo placed it right there.
