Not later than yesterday morning, I shared last year’s post promoting the various leisure activities offered at reduced price for the public holiday of the 1st May 2012. Few hours ago, the prime minister announced that his labour party won’t be holding any political gatherings on this day because of the tragic floods of the 30th March 2013.
As a Mauritian, I think that they are taking Mauritians for fools. The Labour Party is so desperate to find ways to gain sympathy and faith of the population. Wanting us to believe that they are deeply sorrowed for the lives lost and damages caused. On top of that, they will now be blaming other parties for organizing their traditional political gatherings and taking advantage of the tragic events.
I want to be clear on another point. If ever another party decides to take the same step, I will respect them, but never the Labour Party. Not anymore. The country is going through bad times for the past years. Can you imagine, our public beaches and even our country are no more ours but rather for the incompetent “petit copains” and close persons of those in power.
