Fijians must see the good works undertaken by the FijiFirst Government in the past four years, says Krishna Ku­mar.

Mr Kumar, the Arolevu and Mara­sa community advisory councillor, made the remarks after the Fiji­First campaign at Nalovo outside Nadi on Tuesday.

He said a new-born puppy would open its eyes in six days and if Fi­jians still could not see the good works undertaken since 2014, then something was wrong.

He said: “I live about one kilome­tre from the highway. I have seen many elections since 1972 and all have come and gone. Over the years I hit my head on a rock be­cause no government came by to fix our water problems.

“Under the Bainimarama Gov­ernment we now have tap water, electricity and roads. I can tell you that 75 per cent of the people in my area have tap water.”

Mr Kumar believes the commu­nity advisory councillors are the eyes and the ears of the Govern­ment of the day.

“I am an advisory councillor and any phone call made, the answer is given to us. That is what we want,” he said.

“We all know that God will not come, but he will send somebody. That somebody has come today to see us.”
