Sep 04, 2014 Letters Comments Off on Mr. Kissoon has underscored some of the PPP’s dirty tactics
I just came across a column in the Kaieteur News’ online edition, written by Mr. Frederick Kissoon, under the caption “Avoid the Rodney King road over Royston King’. This was published on August 29, 2014.
In that column, the author wrote “APNU and the AFC are prepared to go into an early general election. One anticipates the PPP will put up serious roadblocks to remain in office if the no-confidence motion is passed. It will be passed, inevitably, as day passes into night”.
He made a strong public suggestion, specifically to the PNC, to stay away from public demonstrations to avoid the race trap of the PPP.
“Since the announcement of the no-confidence vote, the PPP has unleashed its provocation strategy. It has begun with the recent arrest and charge of the Public Relations Officer of the Georgetown City Council for forgery. Any fool knows that this is a political ploy to anger the PNC.
The Royston King charge is as politically odious as any in the history of this country.”
I wish to say categorically that Mr. Kissoon’s letter has underscored some of the dirty tactics the PPP/C government used for political gains in the face of general elections over the past years, since winning the 1992 elections.
Of course, one of them is to get the PNC on the streets by violating the constitutional rights of some sections of people in society that can lead to public demonstrations where the PPP will get the chance to create political violence, destruction and ethnic division in the midst of the protest for justice for our people.
We have seen it already in 2011 when former president Bharrat Jagdeo took CNS Sharma Television Channel 6 off the air for four months at that critical period, just before the holding of the 2011 General and Regional Elections for no reason, which was in my mind set out to anger the PNC so that they could call for a public demonstration in support of CN Sharma for them (PPP) to accomplish their mission of making the PNC look bad when they are on the streets.
We must not be fools; the PPP’s strategy at every election in Guyana is to get the PNC onto the streets for public demonstrations where a set of folks in high place in society will hire a group of black youths to attack, beat, stick up, kill and burn down a few business places of a certain ethnic group of people in our society in the midst of the PNC’s public demonstrations to make the party look bad.
The PPP lost a substantial amount of Indian middle class voters in 2011 and that is likely to increase in 2015 and the party will do anything wicked and unscrupulous to regain power by driving fear in the minds of Indo- Guyanese voters who represent 47 percent of the population and once voted en masse for the PPP in the past.
Therefore, let us to stay away from public demonstrations to avoid another race trap of the PPP that Mr. Kissoon suggested, that is the only way Indo- Guyanese may break the barrel of ethnic voting the result of which the PPP/C stands a big change to lose the next general elections.
In conclusion, I wish to tell my Afro-Guyanese brothers and sisters throughout this country that they should not allow themselves to be hired and used to do any dirty work for any political party during and after the next election season.
