Open day an effort to change perceptions

Luke Rawalai

THE press has been used as an agent of retaliation against the Land Transport Authority, says Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu.

Officiating at the authority's open day at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday Mr Bolalevu said people had preconceived ideas about the operations and purpose of LTA.

Mr Bolalevu said while the freedom of expression of views and opinion was through many means and modes, some demeaning and below the belt statements could not go unchallenged.

"These are the challenges that keep the authority going in striving for excellence and perfection," he said.

"Advocacy works have been conducted by LTA's very own officials and most advocacy work is trying to correct the wrong perception that many individuals have, believe and know about LTA.

"Today's open day is going to be an eye-opener for many of us, when the curtain falls marking the end of this inaugural event, many will have a different perception of the authority."

Mr Bolalevu told people that they would learn about the systems and processes of conducting business, the criteria involved, requirements and the restrictions in whatever capacity they were after during the open day.

"Today's occasion will broaden, widen and increase your knowledge and understanding of LTA's existence, functions and responsibilities," he said.
