GTUC condemns PPP’s fear and smear political campaign

The GTUC calls on the PPP to stop its fear and smear political campaign. The statement by Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Roger Luncheon that the government is worried about the influx of former military officers to support the opposition party in the lead up to the May 11th polls is feigned indignation to continue its divide and rule policy, to divert attention, so as not to be held accountable for their stewardship.

Observers heard these two discordant notes, one a plea for unity in song, the other a divisive rant, and several others this past week.
