Bid to raise awareness

Nasik Swami

IN a bid to create awareness on the party's activities and to gauge the support of the people, the National Federation Party held a pocket meeting in Navua on Thursday.

Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said the residents of Naitata, Navua overwhelmingly endorsed the party's plan to reduce the cost of living and alleviate poverty.

"The meeting, which was attended by 50 residents from the area, applauded plans to reduce VAT from 15 per cent to 10 per cent once NFP is in government following the 2014 general election," Prof Prasad said.

"We will reduce VAT to 10 per cent. This was promised by the government after the 2006 coup but instead they raised it from 12.5 per cent to 15 per cent.

"We will also review duties on food items and other essential goods. The price of food items has increased by 60 per cent since the coup."
