guysucologoThe National Assembly on Monday heard that the new chairman of the board of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) resides in the US and travels monthly to discharge his duties.

The highly-indebted Guysuco has been struggling to pay its workers some incentives because of low production due to bad weather and industrial unrests. The Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union has, however, blamed GuySuCo's financial misfortunes on poor management.

This was revealed by Minister of Agriculture Dr. Leslie Ramsammy in response to questions from APNU parliamentarian Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine.

When asked who had replaced the last chairman, Dr. Nanda Gopaul who is now the Minister of Labour, Dr. Ramsammy identified Dr. Rajendra Singh who had been serving on the board as a member. He added that Dr. Singh resides in New Jersey when further questioned by Dr. Roopnaraine.

“The chairman visits Guyana once per month; in addition the chairman is in daily contact with the minister and the management.”

The APNU’s Volda Lawrence queried whether they had exhausted the list of possible Guyana-based candidates for the job and whether the people would have to foot the bill for his travels.

“I’m sure Mr. Speaker that there are many competent persons who could serve as board members or as chair; Dr. Rajendra Singh has been serving on the board for several years,” the minister said, adding that GuySuCo funds economy class tickets for his trips to and from the US.

He added that they are other costs associated with the chairman’s visits such as that connected to his lodging.

Where and when is this squandering of taxpayers funds going to end? Are these people saying that there is no one in Guyana who could be Chairman of Guysuco? Oh Lord, why Lord?

This is a massive scandal.Raj Singh is Jagdeo friend and it look like Ramotar friend too.AFC has to tell the sugar workers why they can't be paid. There is full out squandermania.

Another PPPC cohort on the get rich quick trail, he lives in New Jersey USA and he is the Chairman of Guysuco in Guyana, this is a blatant misuse of the Guyana People's money, I do hope the United States IRS is paying attention to this. I will personally send a copy of this article to the IRS.
This nonsense must stop, this is positive proof of the marginalization of Educated Black men or women in Guyana.

Well i have a suggestion for the President. The board members that are been recycled needs to gotton rid of. Raj Singh phd of CUNY has never taught any courses at the university as far as i am aware and professes that he has the HR acumen to turn Guysuco around. Well he has been on the board for the last three years and duh nothing new> How is he carrying out his full time ***tion at CUNY and then the lead person of the PPP in queens and Guysuco business is anybodys guess. He is like Borrowes also a chairman of Guysuco everyday he summons the senior manager to his office at the PUBLICH HOSPITAL. Are these people sane? JB came in spent two years 3000 us per month driver and car and left achievement NOTHING duh.I have always say that there was one godd young guy at Albion factory when my father work there at that time he came from Skeldon. He was a genius, he worked with JB and Dukhia. I dont know if he is still around but i can put my head on the block he will do far better that many of these dunces put together. The guy is bright and has a mind of his own. Mr President you should really consider him as the executive chairman of Guysuco.

Raj SIngh is a dunce. He works as an admission clerk in an academic institution in Long Island, NY. This man has not expertise as a manager, much less CEO or Chairman of a corporation. He is communist in his thinking and does not believe in free market enterprise. How on earth can this burden be forced on the backs of the poorest people in Guyana - the cane cutters? THIS IS MORE THAN EYE PASS, RAS, THIS IS IT = GUYANESE MUST DENOUNCE THIS PPP AND ABANDON IT. MEMBERS OF THE PPP MUST RESIGN ENMASSE. PPP MEMBERS ARE DISGRACEFUL IF THEY REMAIN MEMBERS OF THE PPP WHICH IS EXPLOITING THE MASSES SHAMELESSLY. RESIGN OR FACE [censored] IN YOUR FACE AND DISGRACE FOREVER UPON YOU ALL AND YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN AND ALL FUTURE GENERATION OF PPP CURRENT LEADERSHIP....YOU ARE A BUNCH OF NASTY DISGRACEFUL DUNCES AND THE MOST STINKING CORRUPT LIARS AND THIEVES GUYANA HAS EVER KNOWN...GET OUT OR ELSE...

Mr.Singh lives in N.J,heads the ACG in NY a political arm of the PPP and enjoying the perks at GUYSUCO,imagine how taxpayers dollars are wasted on these PPP cronies.Mr.Singh claims to have a doctorate but when asked to verify the authenticity of his degree he refused,he is well talked about in the Guyanese community as a PPP propagandist ,he controls a bunch of yes men in an organization called the Association of Concerned Guyanese,a political arm of the PPP.

The recent revelations of the super salaried cronies and friends, has barely started to highlight why a few in Guyana live like apparent royalty and the majority of guyanese suffer struggling to eke out a living... many qualified, driven Guyanese continue to leave and those who remain get dumb ed down for fear of the little they have being removed, while the few in power and associated spend tax payers dollars and gorge.. Its UNCONSCIONABLE!!! again i say.. ONLY in GUYANA!

Raj Singh works for Cuny full time. How on earth did he become Chairman of Guysuco. Raj Singh follows the Rat and Ramotar everywhere. Basically an ass kisser. Secondly I have flown with him to Guyana on many occasions. He does not fly coach he flies first class. Who is the PPP kidding here. Lets get his flight records from Delta. I know lots of people at Delta.

This is the unfairness that people get angry at. Look how many sugar workers risk their lives and go out there to cut cane. They could be bitten by snakes (just one example) When they work tireless hours hoping to take home a salary to feed their families only to be told that the company don't have money. The government supports all of this. This man is in ANOTHER COUNTRY spending GUYANESE MONEY IN ANOTHER COUNTRY while my fellow Guyanese suffer. Could this be fair??

That's why my people in Linden are showing the government that they are part of Guyana and should be treated like Guyanese. The wealth should be spread across Guyana.

The shareholders apponited him as chair because of his skills and his performance as a Board member. Ask GUYSUCO about the addtional revenue he brought to the Company because of the price he negotiated for 2012 and 2013.Ask GUYSUCO about his plan to fix Skeldon.

This Nonsense with Guysuco Overseas Chairman, is Not Necessary For G/T Burden, it is one way to Favour Special Friends, you have to live there to Function There.This Position will need to Review and have a Local Educator in that Prospective Studies to Fill that Position Immediately at a smaller Salary,this Country needs a Complete Overhall of Gov't Ministerial's Salaries, that is too costly to the real Tax Payers.

PPP sources confirm that not only is he the Chairman, he will soon be taking up a senior position in the cabinet. I hear Deputy PM.
Moses ramotar sounds bitter. But the man is brilliant and has the answers to GUYSUCO's problems.Watch in a few months.

This is demoralising to management of Guysuco. Raj Singh is a failure. The 5 billion dollar subvention will go down the drain. Nagas has to wise up the sugar workers. They are not benefiting from the subvention. Is the thieves and others.

I doubt today the Sugar workers will place their faiths in your hands.  You don't have a political strategy, just an agenda and a lot driven by personal distaste for individuals within the PPP.  This is clearly not what the sugar workers want as we see what that leads to.

They will answer you come next election.  The Lindeners did not vote for you, so who made you their "voice".  The GoG was talking with the PNC, whom 90% supported, on the matter.  The sugar workers did not give you a voice to go and instigate unrest.  They have their grievances, but don't see you as the answer either.
