LOCAL Government Minister Parveen Kumar has labelled the Opposition's criticism of the President's speech during the opening session of Parliament as "gutter level of politics".

Speaking in Parliament yesterday, Mr Kumar said the Opposition was calling for a "divided Fiji".

Mr Kumar labelled the comments by the Opposition to not accept the 2013 Constitution as sad and called the minority side of the House to solve its "internal kachkach (bickering)".
