At the MSM’s weekly press conference on Saturday September 23, PPS Vikash Nuckcheddy and Minister Avinash Teeluck focused on the Opposition rally held in Flacq on Friday. For Vikash Nuckcheddy, they were only able to gather 1500 people. It was a fiasco, humiliating and embarrassing for the Opposition, he pointed out.
In addition, the new PPS of No9 and 10 recalled that Anil Bachoo had resigned from the MSM, when the party kept its promise and let Paul Bérenger take over as Prime Minister. Without the MSM, Paul Bérenger would never have been Prime Minister. But today the same Anil Bachoo is praising Paul Bérenger,” he lamented. Before arguing that the opposition experienced defeats in 2014 and 2019, it’s a third defeat that awaits them in 2024.
Avinash Teeluck criticized the PTR for doing nothing to combat the scourge of drugs during its 9 years in power. He went on to point out that the MSM has taken tangible, concrete action on the Chagos issue. Moreover, for the Minister of Arts and Cultural Heritage, for the next elections, the MSM will have a balance sheet to submit and, attached to it, another program for the next five years.
The opposition, on the other hand, is palpably hypocritical, with neither a program nor a balance sheet, let alone a structure.
The Minister of Arts and Cultural Heritage also added that if three leaders and three political parties have to form an alliance to take on Pravind Jugnauth, it’s clear that the work done by the government is appreciated by the population. Moreover, we have confidence in the Mauritian people,” he stressed.
