Bulitavu: PM Delivers

“It’s a fact that FijiFirst has achieved a lot for rural and peri-urban communities. Things are looking good for the Government, its implementation, the budget, it has consistent policies, is more organised, and it’s doing the work now,” Mr Bulitavu said.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has delivered what the people of Fiji wanted during his time in Government.

Placing people first through service delivery and the Revised 2021-2022 National Budget will secure him and FijiFirst another term in power.

These were the sentiments by SODELPA MP, Mosese Bulitavu.

He said yesterday these relationships between Government and the citizens of Fiji made progress more meaningful.

He said it would be best for him and his Macuata support-base that he aligned himself with Government’s policies of economic development in Vanua Levu.

“It’s a fact that FijiFirst has achieved a lot for rural and peri-urban communities. Things are looking good for the Government,  its implementation, the budget, it has consistent policies, is more organised, and it’s doing the work now,” Mr Bulitavu said.

“The rest are just talking and saying things like if they come into Government.

“Government’s policies came in the right time during the pandemic and as we move now towards recovery. That is what people want.”

For the upcoming election, Mr Bulitavu said he would make a decision on which party he would contest under on May 26 when his term in Parliament expires.

“I’m weighing all options and what is best for the people that I represent in Macuata, and its development,” he said.

“I think the A-G was in a high level meeting two days ago in regards to economic development in Vanua Levu and other tourism sectors.

“These are things we are trying to lift in our rural area economies and it sets the direction where people will be empowered.

“That could be the best option for me to align myself. Things that will help the people who support me and I know as a  representative it will be best for them.”

 

NFP-PA Coalition

He labelled the coalition between the National Federation Party and the People’s Alliance as a “marriage of convenience”.

He questioned their take on land and other issues relevant to Fijian citizens.

“I cannot see how they can have a good and lasting partnership,” Mr Bulitavu said.

“We just have to go back to the 1999 election to see how J Ram Reddy and Rabuka actually formed that thought line.

“Now without the convenience of the law to provide a coalition just have partnership after elections. The thing is: What’s NFP’s take on land?

“Those issues might come into loggerheads.

“During Sitiveni Rabuka’s prime ministership, he said he carried out developments on Vanua Levu, but nothing as substantial as the development’s done under Mr Bainimarama’s leadership.

“And during Rabuka’s prime ministership no development on Vanua Levu was done.

“He achieved some things during his prime ministership from 1992-1998 but for Bainimarama he’s got the upper hand in Vanua Levu.

“His development has really touched the grassroots people including the various assistance not only in infrastructure, but also allowances and education which were not there.”
