Beware Of Racial Comments: Bainimarama

More than a hundred villagers from Nausori Village at Nalawa in Ra showed their support during a FijiFirst campaign at their village hall, yesterday.

Party leader Voreqe Bainimarama urged the people to not give in to racial comments made by other political parties.

“The racial comments made by parties are only to trigger your emotion, telling you lies about not being equal.

“Beware of SODELPA as they make comments on different races. Let us please be open minded, because I am sure that we were not taught from our religion to see people differently,” he said.

Other issues that Mr Bainimarama raised on were other parties telling people that the scholarships were not equally distributed.

“The scholarship programme that my government had started is specifically given to top 600 students and this does not say anything on the race of the student.

“These candidates should not talk because they do not know anything on this programme,” he said.

He also said that one of the main reasons why people are being easily manipulated is because they know that people are not fully aware of the 2013 Constitution.

“Other political parties do this because they know that most of the people have not read the constitution.

“They create fear to you people about our land and religion not being protected when in fact this are all lies,” he said.

The FijiFirst party leader confirmed to the people that their land and religion is kept safe because of the Constitution. Mr Bainimarama has also confirmed that he has received the party’s manifesto and this will be released this week.

“I have just received our party manifesto and it has basically stated on improving on the service that we have provided for the past seven years,” he said.
