Komal wears two important hats. 1. Head of GAWU. 2.  PPP Member of Parliament.  That's two salaries for many many years.   GAWU collects millions of dollars in union dues.  They should be helping the workers more.  He is in his 70s, a nice age to retire.  PPP might be looking for younger, more energetic people who are current with issues like oil, international banking, etc.

I wish Komal well.  He served his country with distinction.

Well said but knowing some people (Moses come to mind), he will not refuse a PNC bone. I heard that is happening in the background as we speak.

Jagdeo took the bull by the horns and that is why I like Jagdeo's style of politics.

Time for Komal to go.

Imagine a Union Leader lost 7,000 jobs under his watch and then showed up in the Gov't's office to discuss THEIR way forward.  If the PNC union leader had lost 7,000 jobs under a PPP govt all hell would break loose.  Let's see if he bites the PNC bone.

The strategic decisions pertaining to the sugar industry was made by politicians, not the union.  The failure to make the difficult choices early in the game was made by the PPP.  Not GAWU, not the PNC.

Komal is a true Cheddie devotee.

He is a humble, kind and caring person.

This is typical of poor leadership, shoot your general and the side show will be a smokescreen for real happenings

 

You will have your balls sliced off by GNI Jagdeoites.  Dem in overdrive just like the Democrats tonight!

Sugar workers experienced Glory days under Jagdeo's two terms. Shut your trap before speaking nonsense about Jagdeo.

 

So said the man who is currently freezing in North America.

In fact Jagdeo stated an intent to shut down the Demerara sugar estates and focus on Berbice.  He squandered millions on the ill fated Skeldon and left Guysuco in WORSE shape than Hoyte left it.

Is that all you have? Look, anything that the sugar workers got was because they struggled for it and earned it. There were many strikes when Jagdeo was president and this caused some friction between him and Jagdeo.

Jagdeo is partly to blame for the present situation in the sugar industry and what the workers presently face. He was president when the preferential tariff was reduced, he was president when Skeldon was built supposedly to solve the issue of cost of production, he was president when the European Union provided funds for three things - technological improvement to reduce the cost of production of sugar. funding for diversification from the traditional agricultural crops, and for dealing with the social effects that will result in changes in the sugar sector. Unless of course he was detached from what was happening around him in his key support base or thought that he can stop change from happening. There are others to be blamed. He shares part of the blame!

No bullyism and swearing on your part will surmount the logic of what I write!

I will like yuji and the other stooges to address these points.  Had the PPP won there would also have been estate closures as the PPP sunk almost US$800 million when one considers direct and indirect loans and subsidies.

Guyana CANNOT indefinitely sustain this, and the PPP would NOT have done so had the ethnic composition of the workforce been different.

I suggest that he accept the severance and the business classes that the current govt is providing because that was all that he did when 80% of the bauxite workers lost their jobs.

I guess there is no twist to the truth

Vish M shut your behind up.  You should be banned from Freedom House for fermenting trouble. You are nothing but a sh-t disturber.

It is obvious that you are blind to the happenings in Guyana

It is not an issue of me being blind. My only concern is the prevention of  a split between GAWU and the PPP.
