National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad claimed Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum were too busy pointing fingers at NFP and The People’s Alliance to see their own wrongs.
“So these two men, when they talk about 1987, they forget 2000 and 2006,” he said at a rally in Kinoya this week where Mr Rabuka also spoke.
“They forget that they have been in government for 16 years and what do we have in the country today?”
Prof Prasad said if the military coup of 2006 had not happened, “we would not have the kind of squatter settlement problems we have in this country”.
“Between PA and the NFP, we know how to fix the health services. We know how to fix our informal settlements.
“If we didn’t have the coup in 2006, we would have had a thriving sugar industry in this country.”
Prof Prasad claimed come December 14, Fiji would have a new government that “the people of this country can trust”.
He added the partnership between NFP and The People’s Alliance would fix the issues faced by the people and issues affecting the country.
“We know how to fix the economy. We know how to fix the sugar industry.
“Under this man (Mr Rabuka) when he was Prime Minister, the sugarcane farmers of this country received the highest level of support through the crop rehabilitation program between 1988 and 1989.
“Mr Rabuka and I and the team that we have assembled in PA and NFP knows how we going to fix the mess the two men rule have left in this country.”
