The Guyana Police Force is mandated to protect and serve the people, unfortunately the priority of the police force is to serve and protect the APNU/AFC coalition Government Ministers, government officials, while the ordinary Guyanese is being sacrificed to the mercy of bandits and criminals, thanks to the incompetence of Khemraj Ramjattan and the APNU/AFC coalition Government.
The security situation in Guyana remains a serious concern for every single Guyanese.
The APNU/AFC coalition Government promised the Guyanese people in 2015 that high emphasis would be placed on security of Guyanese but the only thing that changed was the name of the Ministry that is responsible for security, increased police security of Ministers, leaving Guyana in an uncontrolled level of crimes in the entire country.
The Minister who is directly responsible for public security Khemraj Ramjattan and the Guyana Police Force boastfully in reports, state, and the media highlighted, that the crime situation is under control but the reality is quite the opposite.
The fact is that Guyanese have definitely lost confidence in the Guyana Police Force, where people are refusing to even report incidents that they have encountered, and even if these matters are reported the police force is of no help. I am confident that the responses that would be given by Khemraj Ramjattan and other Government officials is that crime is under control.
A 170 year culture by Indians in Guyana where music is being played for weddings is being stopped by Ramjattan and the GPF. This Indian tradition is being strangled by this APNU/AFC Government and confined to Berbice alone.
The Guyana Police Force is being used as a political football, recently at a picketing exercise at New Amsterdam Multilateral School protesters were being forced by the police to move about 500 feet from the entrance of the school while thugs of the APNU/AFC were allowed to remain at the entrance of the school.
APNU/AFC thugs were allowed by the police to behave abusively towards protesters while the police refused to remove them from in front of the school entrance.
The police even tolerated the loud abuse and taunts. The protesters who were exercising their constitutional rights were not given that privilege. Senior police officers ensured that four policemen were placed to keep protesters 500 feet away from the entrance of the school.
When the PPP/C Government was in office, during the 2015 campaign, protesters were allowed at the location of a meeting at Lusignan, East Coast Demerara. Has there since been a change in rules?.
The big question is are we moving into a full fledged dictatorship where the police force is being used to subdue and stifle democracy? President David Granger’s visit to New Amsterdam Multilateral School is an insult to the lives of many of those students whose parents were dismissed from the sugar estates by his administration, and can barely afford to be in school.
The students cash grant was taken away by this Granger-led APNU/AFC Government and with the same breath Granger is preaching that his Government wants every child to be in school, that is “ high class hypocrisy “.
Granger’s rhetoric about regional involvement is just to mislead the populace. The 1 million dollars cash grant by Granger is a pittance, compared to approximately 100 million dollars that is being spent at Bermine Ground for the Republic Celebration in 2020. So you the people can actually determine what is the priority of this illegal APNU/AFC coalition Government.
