CONCERNS over the high cost of living, poverty, land leases and education were some of the main issues highlighted at the Fiji Labour Party campaign at River Rd in Narere, Nasinu, yesterday.

Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry reminded about 40 residents that the party was there for them, however, it needed ttheir support to deliver.

He added this would only be possible at the September election when people cast their vote.

Mr Chaudhry said people had seen what his government had done when they were in power and they were ready to do it again in a bid to improve the lives of ordinary people.

He told party supporters that they would bank on them and their vote was important to make a difference.

River Rd resident Praneeta Devi said it was great to see that political parties visited their area prior to the election because they would like to let them know of the problems they faced daily.
