Government has turned its back on those living in Alliance Road, Timehri

Dear Editor,

It is my belief that the government has turned its back on residents living in the Alliance area, Timehri, East Bank Demerara. Schoolchildren, the sick, the old, the pregnant, and every person using that road experiences a nightmare going in and out. Only the big shots whose bush-trucks damage the road can go in and out without much headache. And they are the people who break up the road and do not care about others. They are the Alliance Road Millionnaires.

From time to time some grading is done on the road, but it becomes slush soon after. And the big shot truck-owners do not even help by helping to fill the craters.The previous administration paid their friends to throw loam on the road, which was washed away with the next shower. The same nonsense continues. We doubt whether Minister Patterson ever heard about Alliance Road, Timehri. For starters, he can send a team in to inspect it. Better yet, he can try to go through the road with his SUV.

The residents are respectfully begging the media to highlight our plight so that some lasting remedy can be found for Alliance Road, Timehri.

Yours faithfully,

Charles Selman


Lowe’s conclusion on case before CCJ was spurious

Dear Editor, In reaction to Mr Sherwood Lowe’s letter  captioned ‘Mendez has shifterd the CCJ gaze from Article 1 to Article 9 of the Constitution’ appearing in the Stabroek News of the 20th March, 2018, I would wish to submit that in my respectful recall the learned counsel for the Respondent in Richardson v Attorney General and Trotman asseverated that, in the absence of a credible definition of the terms “democratic” and “sovereignty” in Articles 1 and 9 of the Guyana Constitution, the court was required to construe these terms.

Realistic solutions not rhetoric are needed to bring relief to the sugar workers

Government did not provide $68M in the national budget for the IDPAD conference

Dear Editor, It would be remiss of me not to address the Guyana Times article of March 9, 2018: ‘Govt yet to receive report on $68M IDPAD conference’, since it is either a malicious article or one in which the author is wallowing in ignorance.
