武威楼凤

first_imgDear Editor,Governments are not judged on what they promised they will do, they are not evaluated or assessed on what they intend to do; they are judged on what they have done. Therefore, the question is asked, what are the achievements of this coalition Government since there three plus years in office? And the answer comes back, very little if anything at all. When it comes to judging them by the index of people development and the raising of their standard of living, this vital factor is woefully lacking.So, for convenience, let us forget the people factor for a while and let us take a close look at some of the projects earmarked for completion, there are quite a few of them; these are the East Coast, West Coast and the East Bank (Georgetown to Timehri) road projects. The Cheddi Jagan International Airport project. Not one of these are close to completion though budgetary allocations were made by the previous Administration for their upgrade and modernisation. These projects were already earmarked for implementation, so when the coalition came into office their only option was to complete these.Other projects range from the new access road from Ogle to the East Bank of Demerara, the Amaila Falls HEP, the new Demerara Harbour Bridge among others. However, what we see at the present moment is the patching of the roads in question and a “watered down version” of a modern airport project. So, if one is to make a true assessment of this PNC-led coalition based on the project implementation alone, many in this present Government would be languishing in prison.What a horrible way to deceive and mislead the people who you claim voted for you?Oh, lest I forget, there is one substantial achievement visible and lasting that is the construction of a roundabout on the Rupert Craig Highway. I am tempted to re-caption my article to now read “A roundabout Government.” Interesting!Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more
