Guyana's polarization of the two major races,fighting for turf came when Jagan and Burnham entered politics.
It will be disingenuous to link Luckhoo-Nunan Scheme with present day politics.
Just my two cents.
In fact this race for dominance came long before Burnham and Jagan, which is why it was possible, because the seeds were already there.
If importing labor was the main focus then sources of labor closer to Guyana would have been tapped. Bringing people all the way from India under the terms that Luckhoo wanted was expensive. So what was his motive for this singular source?
