Jagan said no mud-slinging in Mirror

Dear Editor,

I recall, in the ‘70s, Dr Cheddi Jagan calling on contributors to the Mirror newspaper to avoid what he termed “mud-slinging”. The term with respect to meaning speaks for itself.

I was then a regular contributor to the Mirror pages under the initials KNP with poems (so called) and letters.  Dr Jagan’s advice , in my opinion, was sound and I adopted it as a guideline for decent writing.

I wish our politicians, of the opposition and government , could stop “clawing at each other’s throats” and get on with the business of running the country decently and fruitfully.

Yours faithfully,

Krishna Nand Prasad
