Letters

The OLPF is transformative

Dear Editor, Two years ago, President Jagdeo conceptualized what will undoubtedly become one of the most transformational social and economic development programmes ever undertaken in Guyana, the One Laptop Per Family (OLPF).

Dr Luncheon seems to have misread the open letter to Minister Solheim

Dear Editor, In his letter (‘Ram and Bulkan need to start getting their facts right,’ SN April 15), Dr Roger Luncheon, Head of the Presidential Secretariat, says – “Mr Ram and Dr Bulkan (as well as Mr Ramjattan and others) claimed in a letter to Norwegian Minister Erik Solheim that the only justification for the Amaila Hydro Power project was a one-and-a-half page entry in the LCDS.

Franklin not in a position to make allegations against Ramsaroop

Dear Editor, It has been reported that Mr Everard Franklin of GAP/ROAR has accused Peter Ramsaroop of “treachery,” etc, concerning the unity of JOPP; I would just like to state for the record, that I find it very strange that Mr Franklin would make such allegations when he, Mr Hardy and Mr Dev with the backing of the AFC, in the intensive deliberations leading up to the 2006 elections, were the ones who were responsible for the break-up of the Third Force platform which we were trying to put together.

The absence of the GFF President from the launch of the Schools Football Academy is a matter for concern

Dear Editor, The absence of the Guyana Football Federation President or an official representative from the inaugural Scotia Bank/Pepsi/ Guyana Sports Development Foundation (GSDF) Schools Football Academy, which was officially launched on Saturday, April 12, 2011 at the Carifesta Sports Complex, Carifesta Avenue, should at least be of major concern to all and sundry.

Enough is enough

Dear Editor, It’s with great pleasure that I commend the bold efforts of Messrs Donald Duff and Marlon Munroe, Sports Editor and journalist respectively, for the extensive coverage on the football saga that Stabroek Sports has been providing almost on a daily basis for the past two weeks.

‘Ram and Bulkan need to start getting their facts right’

Dear Editor, I refer to Christopher Ram’s letter of April 11 in SN, captioned ‘Serious questions remain about the LCDS including the wisdom of putting Norway funds into the Amaila project.’ In his letter, Mr Ram makes several points to justify his claim that the government is “intolerant of independent voices and critical views,” and he bemoans a lack of “openness, transparency and accountability.” This is in line with views on the LCDS and the Amaila project previously expressed by Mr Ram and Dr Janette Bulkan, to whose inputs Mr Ram increasingly defers.
