The Alliance For Change yesterday lashed out at the National Communications Network and the Guyana Chronicle, and denounced in the strongest terms, articles that the two news entities carried. The Alliance For Change described them as complete fabrications
The news items stated, among other things, that AFC Leader, Raphael Trotman, was in Florida, USA on Friday, June 25, 2010, and conducted meetings. The newspapers then used inflammatory and disrespectful language to refer to Party Chairman, Khemraj Ramjattan.
“There is absolutely no truth in the story whatsoever.”
The party stated that Trotman was not even in Florida on the day claimed by the state media, and neither was any meetings whatsoever held, “by him or any member of the Party as falsely stated in the state media.”
The party has since challenged the state media “to put up or shut up by naming the date, time, venue and persons in attendance at this meeting…if not, to at least pretend to be decent and retract the story.”
The party conceded however, that given its past record of inaccuracies and fabrications, “we do not expect much by way of a retraction or apology, but leave the people of Guyana to judge for themselves how dangerous and dictatorial this regime has become.”
The party said that “this ‘Nancy’ story follows a clear pattern of ‘Goebbels’ type propagandizing by the PPP regime to drive suspicion and division within the leadership and ranks of the AFC, and other opposition parties and groups, and now surpasses its own previous incredulous stories about the aiding and abetting of criminals, “cocaine in pepper sauce”, and reports of members of the leadership resigning from the Party.”
According to the party it is obvious that the PPP is panicking at the real prospect of defeat at the upcoming elections and that the party, which it had dismissed as “wishy washy rejects” in 2006, is now the cornerstone Party in the strong wall of Opposition it faces both at home and abroad. The party stated that there is a clear and unmistakable pattern of harassment and intimidation of persons who oppose the regime and are likely to play a meaningful role in an opposition force in the coming months.
“Witness as well, the PPP’s recent ridiculous responses to the TIP report, the World Bank’s Resident Representative, the IMF’s Economic intelligence reports and it will be realised that panic dictates the PPP’s responses, while fear and confusion are its weapons of choice…The PPP regime has now become like the proverbial ‘back-dam bull,’ slipping and sliding on its own (faeces) as it involuntarily makes its way to the slaughter house.”
The party assured its supporters that the end is near for this regime and that the party mettle is being tested and, “we have to demonstrate that we are ready, willing and able not only to defend ourselves, but more importantly, to join hands with others to take over the reins of Government.”
