Praise for town

Repeka Nasiko

BA Town's uniqueness comes in the form of the people's understanding of one another despite their differences, says Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

While opening the Digicel Ba Riverside Platinum Carnival at Vinod Patel Park on Monday, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum praised the town's people for their resilience.

"The uniqueness in Ba comes about the fact that within the diversity, there is so much mingling, acceptance and understanding which in itself causes that assimilation that is unique to places like Ba and various other places in the Western Division," he said.

He added there were exciting times ahead for the country.

"We have a bright future ahead of us because what has been happening in Fiji for the past five or six years, Fiji has become quite liberalised in the way that we think and in the vision that we have of our country."

Ba Town Council special administrator Pravin Bala said the council was honouring former mayors and council workers during the carnival.

"During this carnival, we are going to recognise and honour all of the former employees of Ba Town Council along with the former mayors of the town," he said.

"Whether it is a grass cutter or drain cleaner or a mayor, every night we will have at least 20 of our former employees recognised."
