In trying to shoot the messenger let us not burn the message

Dear Editor,

The recent package of security measures outlined by the Minister of Home Affairs met positive reviews from many responsible persons, agencies and stakeholders in this country. However, the parliamentary opposition post-haste declared its rejection of same, based not on the actual measures but on the premise that these were presented by Minister Rohee.

The electorate voted their representatives to Parliament to treat with matters in the interest of the nation and not to engage

Is the Guyanese public so gullible that it is believed they will just tolerate personal battles in Parliament?
If the initial author(s) of the measures is/are from the opposition benches, then let the debate in Parliament bring it out and let the nation decide who deserves the plaudits. In trying to shoot the messenger, let us not burn the message which, as some claim, they themselves initially crafted.

Let Parliament be the venue for mature deliberations in the interest of this nation, else posterity will judge its work harshly.
Yours faithfully,
Taajnauth Jadunauth
