A 71-year-old Suva market vendor says she is grate­ful to the Government for its assistance to people.

Jai Wati said she was looking forward to casting her vote for the November 14 General Elec­tion.

“I have two sons and one is disa­bled so he requires extra atten­tion,” she said.

“This FijiFirst Government has done a lot for the people of Fiji, especially with students bus fare and school fees.

“My disabled son is also getting benefit of $90 per month.

“Widows are also getting ben­efits and now the senior citizen bus fare is free.

“No other Government in the past has ever done all those things for the common people of Fiji

“I sincerely appreciate the help­ing hand Government has done so far for the people of Fiji,” she added.

She has been a vendor at the Suva Municipal Market for 45 years. She is hoping to get Gov­ernment help to expand her busi­ness. She sells vegetables, fruits and home-made pickles.
