THE high cost of living, increased prices of basic food items and the state of public utilities were some of the main issues highlighted at yesterday's National Federation Party meeting in Lautoka yesterday.

And party leader Professor Biman Prasad has hailed the support rendered by members of the public towards the party as they prepared for the general election in September.

"Honesty and trust are what people want in the parties and the leaders that they choose," Professor Prasad told party supporters at the Girmit Centre.

"The poor people in this country have been suffering — never before what we have seen.

"According to the (NEC) National Employment Centre, 30,000 graduates are looking for employment — we are not here to criticise but to offer alternatives we believe is right and what we will pursue when we are in parliament."

More than 80 supporters gathered at the Girmit Centre to share their personal vies with the party officials including Mr Prasad, president Tupou Draunidalo and latest party official Faizal Koya.

Mr Prasad said he was more than pleased when he saw the many support rendered from people in the West.

"We are on a tour to hear from you what the issues are — these are the very important things, we don't want to talk about policies without hearing from the public.

"We would also like to give them ideas about the party platform so they can go and talk to the people.

"We want people to understand about the party manifesto and hear new things from them so we can finish our manifesto reflecting on what people want — that's the purpose of this meeting"

The party officials were on a tour of the West meeting party officials this week.
