Vishnu Bisram may have put ink to a delusion or deliberate falsehood to gain his own ends
A letter published in you Sep 21 edition, and written by Vishnu Bisram, claims that Abu Bakr made references to “troubling electoral improprieties” in the July internal elections held by the PNC.
Bisram seems to recall seeing this in your newspaper. This is just to let Mr Bisram, and readers misled by his statement, know that I never made any comments at all on the conduct or results of those elections.
From the distance at which I find myself it would have been difficult, if not presumptious. Mr Bisram’s memory has failed. Happens to all of us. But he also takes care to class me with Prof Keane Gibson and to declare in the same sentence that we are “two of the staunches PNC supporters.” I am unaware of Dr Gibson’s past or current sympathies and affiliations.
But as for myself, I need to assume that Bisram wishes to mistake me for Lurlene Nestor or Sherwood Lowe or the many activists who write occasionally and whose fervour it would again be presumptious of me to wish to match. There is also the possibility that Vishnu Bisram has put ink to a delusion or deliberate falsehood to gain his own ends. This may not be the first time that he accuses me of something or other anyway.
