PDP stays strong

Nasik Swami
Friday, March 07, 2014

DESPITE the resignation of founding member Nirmal Singh, the People's Democratic Party says it is getting stronger by the day.

Interim party general secretary Sat Narayan said their supporters were growing all over Fiji.

"Our aim is to register about 34 to 40 per cent voters to our side, so we are working tirelessly," he said.

"We have people on the ground working every day to get this."

Mr Narayan said the party's focus was to reduce unemployment and create more work opportunities.

"We have plans to ignite investment, create employment, reduce squatter problems, homelessness, landlessness and focus on other big issues."

Mr Narayan said Fiji's economy was not growing and the country was getting into major debts.

He added that if PDP wins the polls, it would reinstate the rule of law.

"No rule of law means the law is applied differently to the supporters of the government and the ... decrees in place bar community leaders — the unionists — from participating in political activities, so that itself is not an even playing field."
