Kaieteur News of Tuesday, October 25, 2011, on page 14, reports His Excellency the President of Guyana, Bharat Jagdeo, as saying, at the Lusignan rally that he threw me, Rajendra Bisessar, out of the party. It was further reported that the President said that I was a junior member of the party.
Kaieteur News further reports in the said article that the president said “he was advising me on collecting Garbage in the flood time” and went on to say that “I didn’t even know when he was in my office” and “ I told Luncheon to fire this guy years ago”.
With regards to my “being thrown out of the party”, the general secretary Donald Ramotar, on NCN, stated that I was expelled some years ago.
Both of these gentlemen are telling blatant lies. I was never expelled from the party. My last year of membership was in 2008 and I did not renew my card in 2009.
Both Bharat and Ramotar have some form of delusion that informs them that I was thrown out of the party. This President is indeed delusional for he actually feels that the PPP is his personal property and he has the right to throw people out. Maybe he can inform us which part of the PPP constitution gives him the powers to throw out any member. The PPP has a constitution that dictates strict protocol to be utilized in the disciplining of members.
I call upon Bharat and the aspiring Presidential candidate Donald Ramotar to produce the evidence, the minutes and other documents to back up their claims.
With regards to statement by Bharat that I was a junior member of the PPP he has to explain “junior” as opposed to “senior”. I occupied various positions in the past within the District and Regional Council of the PPP and was a candidate member of the Central Committee (CC). At one time I was 37 at the elections at congress of the CC, but when vacancies occurred I was bypassed. The General Secretary should explain why.
Had Bharat contested the CC before he became Minister he would have probably brought last place. In fact he never even contested.
I spoke at public meetings in various parts of the country. Bharat was nowhere around. I was a candidate member of the central membership of the PYO, let Bharat tell us what positions he occupied in the PYO and the PPP prior to him becoming a Minister. Let him say how many letters he may have written in defence of the PPP and in criticism of the PNC, possibly none. Prior to Bharat becoming a Minister, he worked for the PNC government, while I was victimized. As I said before, they transferred me from a secondary school to teach Prep A and so I resigned.
Bharat and the PPP government have done to me exactly what Burnham did to me, except that they did not beat me.
Speaking about seniority, I wonder how he compares himself to Nagamootoo. But Moses is quite capable of dealing with those usurpers and power drunk leaders.
As I said before, I became fed up with the lack of internal democracy, and wrote about it in the press.
I will dedicate another letter to show that not only do they manipulate by marginalizing members but how the actual election process lacks transparency.
With regards to my being employed by the office of the President, Bharat admits saying “He (Bisessar) was advising me on collecting garbage during the flood time”. I did a good job and this was reported to Cabinet. I was efficient and economical and when Bharat insisted that the private sector come in I objected. I will repeat what I said before that the company I utilized spent 5.5 million to do the major clearing and cleaning, but the private sector brought in by office of the President spent over 50 million, just to remove the garbage that was brought out to the road.
The private sector came in and commenced to clear garbage with a compactor and men with pitchforks. That is laughable, considering the garbage crisis that existed. The private sector commenced to clear one heap by the Better Hope Community Centre and I commenced the said morning with three back hoes and 35 trucks. I cleared the public road and the embankment road from Haslington all the way to Better Hope and when I got there the private sector was still working on the one heap. Had I not done this and had depended on the private sector we all would have died of leptospirosis.
Now I am not there to advise him look at the state of the solid waste disposal system. It is chaotic. Bottom line is Bharat does not heed advice. He has the repertoire of all knowledge, and if indeed he needs any, Mc Coy is there to do so.
According to the President, he gave instructions to Luncheon to fire me. But he states, “I didn’t even know when he was in my office”. Amazing is it not. This President employed me and cannot remember seeing me and has forgotten that on so many occasions I travelled with him in his vehicle and in the same plane to meetings and took notes and the president did not realize I was there.
Now you understand why his is a failed presidency.
But this same president, Nevertheless gave instructions to Dr. Roger Luncheon that I be fired. I am sure If Bharat considers this junior member so important that he has to discuss me at one of their biggest rallies, according to the PPP, then I am sure the reporters can ask and Dr. Luncheon can say something about the instructions given to him by the President to fire Rajendra Bisessar, and what actions he took.
I am sure also that Dr. Luncheon being an “Honorable man” – if I may quote from Mark Anthony’s speech in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar – would tell us the grounds on which the firing of Bisessar was ordered.
He will also inform us how his government invoked justice and whether in keeping with the right to natural justice he gave Bisessar a right to a hearing.
His answers will, I am sure, demonstrate to the workers of this country that they have no rights, for if they can treat a longstanding member of the PPP who was beaten, nearly killed and locked up and victimized by the PNC in this way, wither is their claim to being a friend of the workers. Wither is their claim to being a working class government.
I will subsequently elaborate, but I close by reminding readers that this government did the same to a freedom fighter of the PPP, Fazel Khan. They did the same thing to another, O’Lall, and his depression contributed to his death. They did the same to me, but unlike O’Lall, I will not die and let them off so easily. I am back in the trenches, and in the same manner I fought against the corruption and lack of democracy of the PNC, I will fight against the corruption and undemocratic practices of the PPP.
I risked death fighting the PNC, and although I remember what happened to ‘Sash’ Sawh, I will fearlessly battle the inept, incompetent, visionless and corrupt cabal that now controls the PPP and the PPP/C government.
I have joined with the Alliance for Change and call on all the supporters of the PPP and the PNC to join with us as we move to put the PPP and the PNC disguised as APNU to pasture. In some instances, some members of the PPP government would have to be tried and put in jail.
