Sorry baseman but MH cracked the truth in that Luckhood scheme. It was to ensure that the Indian population began to outnumber the combined black and colored populations. The black and colored organizations sniffing a rat then demanded that immigration from the Caribbean also be encouraged.
Clearly it was cheaper to bring in workers from Jamaica, which at the time had massive migration if labor shortages were the only issue. Clearly a political issue of ethnic dominance was the main goal.
Sorry Caribj, I frankly don't give a shyte. As I said, if you feel that strongly about your space there, then go and take up possession. Its still there, all 83k Sq miles. I'm sure Granger could fit you in easy!
BTW, the Indian population did outnumber the others without Guyana's Hindustan! As I said, we sex up we women and dem get nuff nuff pickney!
Clearly you do because you keep on responding to these posts. And in fact the paranoia of the black population of Indian domination was justified when we see what happened during the two periods of PPP rule. Apan jhat!
Even people like Eusi, who hated Burnham from the beginning, were forced out of the PPP when they saw that it was a de facto racial party. Yes that numeric superiority of the Indians encouraged the PPP to adopt this strategy.
You will note that when Burnham left the PPP he took with him more than a few Indians, maybe the more urban, possibly non Hindu group. He wasn't stupid so knew full well that a race based strategy prior to independence guaranteed losses for the PNC.
But keep on responding as clearly you do care about this topic.
