Today six (6) Councillors of the Rosignol/Zeelust Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) withdrew their resignation following a meeting with General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo. Central and Executive Committee members Zulfikar Mustapha and Nigel Dharamlall were also present during the meeting which took place at Freedom House on Robb Street, Georgetown.
The Councillors were agonized by the fact that their resignation over a particular matter was “falsely portrayed” by the APNU/AFC and its surrogates as a loss of confidence in the People’s Progressive Party Civic Government.
They also sought the assistance of the Party and Government in accelerating development in their NDC and reaffirmed their commitment to that cause.
In rebuking the sinister motive of the APNU/AFC cabal the Councillors reminded that the community and NDC of Rosignol/Zeelust have suffered from neglect, wanton discrimination and lack of accountability during the APNU/AFC time in office.
The Party is of the view that this mischievous attempt by the APNU/AFC is designed to create a distraction as a means of deflecting from its notorious and despicable record which was highlighted during the recent budget debates and the current observance of the one-year anniversary of their assault on democracy.
No doubt, this sort of desperate behaviour by the coalition will continue as the PPP/C Government presses ahead with its development agenda through the implementation of the measures outlined in the 2021 Budget for the benefit of all sections of society.
