“THE public meeting at Whim, Corentyne, Berbice,is proof that ex-People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) member, Mr. Moses Nagamootoo is a non factor in the upcoming elections, campaign Spokesman Robert Persaud declared yesterday. Minister Robert Persaud.
Speaking at the press briefing in Freedom House, Robb Street, Georgetown, he said that event puts to rest the assertion that Nagamootoo can take votes from the PPP/C in the area, simply because it is his home village.
The reaction from thousands present was negative, with the gathering shouting slogans such as ‘No place for Naga’ and ‘Naga is a disgrace to Whim’, effectively demolishing his standing and influence in the community, Persaud reported.
He said those who “sponsored”, exaggerating the term, Nagamootoo’s migration from the PPP/C, are in for a surprise.
“They will be shocked at his impact on voters…the people of Whim and neighbouring communities have spoken…he is a non factor in the elections,” Persaud reiterated.”
