Minister for Local Government, Housing, Environment, Infrastructure and Transport Parveen Bala warned the Tavarau cane farming community in Ba not to be swayed by opposition politicians.

“They,” he said: “will come with a lot of promises of what they would do if they were in Government and at the same time spread lies about the present Government.”

Mr Bala was speaking to about 200 devotees and guests while opening a new $100,000 facility at the Tavarau Marriaman Kovil Temple at the temple’s annual pooja last Friday night.

The new facility will house a cooking area, large dining and toilet facilities and was financed by former Tavarau resident, Auckland businessman Shri Mudaliar.

Mr Mudaliar who has been inspired by the performance of the FijiFirst Government has now invested in a property development venture in Fiji.

“This Government has done more for the people than any other Government I have experienced,” Mr Mudaliar said.

“That is the reason I am here to carry on my business in Fiji and I have been following the developments that have been done in every single town in Fiji. It is inspiring for us from overseas and gives us the confidence to come back and invest here,” he said.

“This include sporting facilities, roads, hospitals, helping cane farmers and many others. Our small country is flourishing and that is why I have come back to set up a business here.”
