To mark the 123rd birthday of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam, the Labour Party organized a wreath-laying ceremony at the SSR samadhi at the Botanical Gardens in Pamplemousses yesterday morning. The leader of the Reds, Navin Ramgoolam, emphasized that SSR remains the father of the nation, who fought so that the country could become independent.
Present at the ceremony, Labour Party leader Navin Ramgoolam answered questions from the press on a number of topical issues. For example, he spoke about the allegation of corruption surrounding a Central Electricity Board tender for the implementation of a project to generate electricity from photovoltaic panels. Navin Ramgoolam says he is committed to ensuring that when “public money is involved, we are accountable to Parliament.
According to Navin Ramgoolam, the MSM is always showing favoritism when awarding contracts. You have to compare the situation before and now,” he says. Moreover, he adds, the government must be able to explain all its spending to Parliament.
Navin Ramgoolam also commented on the suspension of the CEO and Chief Finance Officer of Air Mauritius. He is not surprised to see such a situation at Air Mauritius.
