Former leader gives advice

FORMER National Federation Party leader Jai Ram Reddy has met current party head Professor Biman Prasad and given him advice on political matters.

"We talked and he told me that I may have gotten a leadership position but I had to follow a simple rule," Prof Prasad said.

"He told me (to) 'never cheat the people'. He also informed me that people don't cheat leaders. It is always the leaders who cheat the people."

Prof Prasad also met members of the public during his visit to the Western Division at the weekend.

He also refuted claims made by a political party which claimed that NFP's plan to reduce VAT from 15 per cent to 10 per cent would lead to a 33 per cent reduction in revenue.

"Lowering VAT will lower the cost of living. It will be good for businesses as well and production will increase. We will be able to bring in more revenue to the country."

He said NFP would also conduct a thorough inspection of the country's financial position because the public had not been shown the Auditor General's report for the past seven years.
