Empathy not a consideration says Charrandas Persaud


Charrandas Persaud, AFC big wig, posted on FB that sugar workers are PPP supporters so for him empathy for them is not a consideration. And this is the kind of person my once very close friend and comrade, Khemraj Ramjattan (Prakash) now associates with. Prakash was a person, who at one time knew what it meant to be a people’s person in the vein of Cheddie Jagan. This Persaud person posted that fired sugar workers should not be complaining about not being able to afford to send their children to school because his father was able to send him and his siblings to school many decades ago even when it was out of crop season. What logic indeed! Kinda reminds me of last year when the government spoke in support of a motion to decriminalize attempted suicide but voted against the motion so that the opposition, who introduced the bill, would not get any credit for its passing. This is what politics has come to in Guyana. Thankfully The Caribbean Voice and many NGOs and social activists do not let politics play any role in our efforts to save lives, empower people and make lives better.
