Leader of the Opposition, Hon. Dr Bharrat Jagdeo on Wednesday visited the Stabroek Market and its immediate environs. During his interaction with vendors, stall holders, members of the business community and providers of public transportation a number of concerns were raised. These include slow market sales fueled by increased taxation and other factors; the parking meter project and its severe impact on businesses and the ban on used tyres which, according to providers of public transportation, will lead to a severe increase in operational costs.
See the highlighted section of this Guyana Chronicle article which appeared in its March 24th ONLINE edition ONLY. This naked and divisive appeal to race was done a mere few days after Opposition Leader Dr Bharrat Jagdeo revealed that the Department of Public Information which falls under the purview of Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo is engaged in spreading online racism.
Jagdeo said that he was reliably informed by a source that the DPI is paying about 50 trolls who are operating under the guidance of Imran Khan and are using Indo and Afro Guyanese sounding names to canvas the internet. He said that they are using the most hateful and racist language to polarize the society.
The online publication of this racist article by the state owned newspaper is further evidence of a campaign to divide our people using race hate by the APNU+AFC Government.
