NFP: Time for a change

Luke Rawalai
Monday, June 09, 2014

THE National Federation Party has an enormous support in the North, says the party's national vice-president Pramod Chand.

Mr Chand said people had woken up to the fact that they had been taken for a ride by governments that had promised them good.

He said people did not want to stay under bondage anymore.

"Prices of food have been skyrocketing above the ceiling, life is miserable for low income earners and families are unable to put food on their table," he said.

"Basic food items such as milk are becoming a thing of luxury now as government has increased the duty from 15 per cent to 32 per cent on imported milk powder.

"We believe that things are not very good and people want a change — they need a change and they expect a change."

Mr Chand said this was simply because if there was no change, then people would continue to be in a sluggish situation where the economy was very low.

"Unemployment and cost of living is rising by the day, people cannot make ends meet so they want a change in government and policies.

"Our party is the only party that has specific policies — people can follow these policies and understand.

"In all our meetings people have appreciated that this is the only party that has come up with some much consolidated views, clear-cut practical policies that will enable the people and country to progress."
