I have been waiting for this moment since a few days.
The first socio-cultural group ( or whatever they call themselves ) has finally held their press-conference to congratulate the new government while strongly criticising the previous government which they used to venerate. I have always been amazed at their guts !
I’m not necessarily pointing fingers to the group featuring in the above picture but most of these socio-cultural groups frequently boast about representing the 10 millions of people and thousands of temples in Mauritius. Yes, that’s the point; they represent imaginary people, associations and places of worship. Mauritians are always silently criticizing them in fear of being bullied since most of these groups always had the support of Navin Ramgoolam.
As I said in the past, I never met anyone who agreed with those guys. Personally, I never gave them the right to speak in my name, as part of the hindu community. They were neither elected democratically by the population to represent the population, nor they were given the permission to speak in the name of the population. Some of these groups sometimes hold their own elections to elect the same president and board members again and again. One of these persons even got a piece of the beach to construct his ugly restaurant!
Except for talking bullshit, they haven’t proved to be of any concrete use to our society, to our peaceful island. I believe that the press should stop broadcasting any of their conferences or messages to the population. That’s the only way to kill them or at least, make them realise that no one wants to hear or follow them.
Just to say : Boot licking has just started!
What do you think?
