Town changes 'slow'

HAVING grown up in Labasa, Fiji Labour Party candidate Kamlesh Prasad has seen how developments have been slow in the town.

And he plans to make changes if elected into parliament.

"I have seen the changes over the years and it has been slow given the number of years Labasa Town has been in existence," he said.

"Labasa Town could be a beautiful town today especially with the river flowing through town and the parks surrounding it.

"The slow progress of development is not to be blamed upon any government but the people in Labasa themselves."

Mr Prasad said the lack of commitment from residents and ratepayers in Labasa to help develop the town has contributed to the delay of developments.

"We need to change that attitude and develop our town to a higher level. I have seen this attitude over the years and it is time to put a stop to it," he said.
