Architect of Modern Singapore

Ronnie Chang, Nadi

Wow! Simply awesome!

The Architect of Modern Singapore is on our shores doing master planning for both the Capital city, and Lautoka.

Can the soon-to-be third City, Nadi be adequately included please?

Thank you in earnest anticipation.

‘God in the Constitution’

Sundar Singh, Suva.

Reference to Mr. Nemani Delaibatiki’s my say on ‘God in the Constitution’. A very well explanation of the provisions in the constitution under secular state for all Fijians to practice their religion and live decently, contributing for betterment of their families and the country.

The constitution is the document for the people and how they are governed.

I believe that those in authorities (Public and Constitutional offices), elected in Parliaments, Judiciary etc have taken the oaths under the constitution to serve the People of the country according to the laws of the land which is same as the God’s commandments.

The people will be served according to their conscience and being loyal to themselves,laws and the God.

And to oversee this the ‘God’ is mentioned six times in the last four pages of the 2013 constitution. So the next to the God are the people chosen in the authorities to serve us.

May God bless them all.

Something is wrong

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi.

You’re article titled ‘Beware of fake news'(FS 16/7) by Jyoti Pratibha is an erroneous inaccurate interpretation of allowances. The truth is that the allowances is so big and so comparatively unfair to others. This is so misleading. Something is wrong.

Fare increase

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

The buses and taxi bodies are requesting for an increase in fares in conjunction with the fuel increase.

Do they mean if the fuel prices fall the fares also fall?  The fares so far are just reasonable. Especially for bus operators, they should be getting more income. That was one of the reasons the eTicketing was introduced, to reduce pilferage.

The fare increase is nothing at all to the company and taxi owners but will be a burden for the people.

The plea for fare increase at this moment looks like another political move. You increase we vote for you, you don’t we will not vote for you.

Political parties would definitely be behind some of these moves. Hopefully, common sense will prevail.

Simple question

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

It is a very simple question and so it deserves a very simple answer.

Can Ro Teimumu Kepa, Sitiveni Rabuka, Biman Prasad, Parmod Chand and others tell Fiji what they have done for this beautiful country?

Pioneering Innovative Leadership

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

The country needs a visionary team, those that can find something new, be innovative, inclusive with an indiscriminate approach, different but unique in one’s leadership desires.

Your many government policies must reflect the same and be user friendly. You must be holistic.

Government services must be decentralised for Fijians to benefit, it must be accessible, available and affordable, that is the type of government and Prime Minister Fiji needs or have all these opposition and government critics run out of good ideas for good governance that can entice the majority registered Fijian voters.

Our FijiFirst Government Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama can indiscriminately choose from the many male and female cabinet ministers to serve in the Acting Prime Minister portfolio in his absence at any one time irrespective of ethnicity.

It is unique and is in compliance with our 2013 Constitution but can that be said for other political parties?

A government that puts Fijians First, that is the Fijian People’s government choice, it must command the majority respect.

Why are these many government critics always negative, and ungrateful, although they also benefit equally from these many government policies, incentives and initiatives or are they blinded by greed or self-indulgence?

Human nature I guess, but if one can’t keep up with the pace that is all they will be good at.
