Time for 'true colours'

CAPTAIN Rainjesh San believes Fiji has a lot of talented people who are qualified enough to look after the welfare of their own people.

Mr San, who has worked in the airline industry for 30 years, said he had always wanted to be a politician.

And being chosen to be a candidate for the National Federation Party for the upcoming election was a privilege for the Labasa man.

"It's about time that I really show the true colours of myself. I have always wanted to be a politician, I had this thing in me and I was talking to a few people at early stages in my life," the 49- year-old said.

"I have never had this opportunity where I could join somebody with such calibre, to me calibre mattered the most if people are there with calibre, with qualifications, with experience it makes it easier to work with."

Mr San said the party was not here to dispute anybody but for the future of the Fijian people.

"I believe 2014 is the right time for me to join politics because we have a lot of problems before, we have come out of a lot of issues to handle and let's not face the same things we have been facing all these years.

"Fiji is a beautiful country and it is no less than any other country in the world that Fijians are qualified to look after the welfare of their people themselves and everybody should be given an equal opportunity and we are here to make a difference.

"Please put your votes where it will be counted. NFP is a multiparty and we believe in equality and we believe we can make a difference and we need your support."
