THE FijiFirst Government has become numb to the needs of the people of Fiji, claims Opposition spokeswoman for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Salote Radrodro.

“They have become deaf to the cries of our people,” Ms Radrodro said.

She said Government should hang its head in shame over the callous disregard for our youth.

“Our people are screaming in pain over crime, poverty, high food prices, crisis in the health and education sectors, problems with infrastructure, traffic congestion and the loss of business competitiveness, this budget does nothing to directly ease the pain.

“They have become blind to the crisis facing our country. They have become mute to the abuse of the positions they hold in trust for the people.”

Ms Radrodro claimed that Government failed on every single major plank of the Conventions of the Rights of the Child.

“On every single issue relating to the protection of our children, this Government has failed to deliver.”
