Need for real development

Nasik Swami

WELL-KNOWN Labasa businessman and NFP vice president Parmod Chand claims Vanua Levu has been neglected by the government in terms of development.

Mr Chand said people were being told that millions of dollars had been invested but in reality, things were different.

"Millions of dollars are being invested but our roads are getting narrower day by day," he said.

Mr Chand said Vanua Levu needed real developments.

"We want sugarcane farmers to prosper.

"How can you increase sugarcane output when the roads being used for transportation are getting bad?"

Mr Chand also urged party supporters to forget whatever had happened in the past and focus on building a better Fiji.

"Forget what has happened and show your interest in the party which was built by our grandfathers," he said.

Mr Chand said the prices of goods and services were increasing almost daily.

"Change your mind-set and vote for NFP."
