Jagdeo urges party supporters to approach issues in an intelligent manner

0

Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo says he has found recent social media comments about President David Granger by PPP/C MP Nigel Dharamlall to be “unacceptable” and “reprehensible”.

In an edited version of the initial post which some found to be disrespectful, Dharamlall said

“Even though I didn’t support your party you have still been LUCKY to be installed as President of Guyana by GECOM. Since then though, your Brainlessness has been in Overdrive. Everything that comes out of your Mouth makes you sound foolish…
I’m worried that people are thinking that you are a Dud…
You are our President… get rid of Ramjattan…get rid of the criminals…get rid of the thieves…in and out of Government…
Mr. President I edited the original post…because some of my friends advised me to…but I’m pissed off nonetheless…even though I’m in the Opposition I was hopeful that your platoon of military advisors and yourself would have been able to quell the crime situation…but unfortunately it has gone beyond control…I may not be politically correct sometimes but people are losing their monies, limbs and lives daily…and yet you seem flippant about the demise of our citizens…
Give orders to the police to kill these mofos/thieves…Stop pardoning them…Your oblivion to our suffering is giving strength to the criminals…ONE LOVE!!!”

However, the Opposition Leader expressed the belief that “We can deal with the (actions) of this government using language that is not hateful or personal.”

He told media operatives that “I’ve spoken to Mr. Dharamlall. He said to me that he recognize that the language was not befitting Member of Parliament or anyone for that manner, that he apologized for it…and has expressed contrition to me also that there will be no repetition of this sort of issue.”

He has also called on his party’s supporters to take note of this example and chose to address issues in an intelligent manner.

In a subsequent post, Mr. Dharamlall apologized saying “Dear President #Granger

I’m sure you are a thick-skinned leader…as all politicians ought to be…however, some of your supporters feel that I have been too harsh in my criticisms of you…

Let us bury the hatchet…you lead the country without racial and political discrimination; without fear of the criminals; without dubious and partisan policies; without corruption; without disrespect to the Amerindians, vulnerable, elderly, youth and disadvantaged AND I shall steer clear of you…

To you and your supporters #MyApology for the unwarranted things I earlier posted that may have caused you harm…

ONE LOVE!!!”
