National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad believes Nadi has been neglected by the Bainimarama Government.

He told party supporters in the Jet Set town this week that Nadi’s deteriorating infrastructure was a major issue of concern.

“We met with key stakeholders from Nadi, including the Chamber of Commerce, and a member talked about the state of health services at the Nadi Hospital,” Prof Prasad said.

“He talked about the police station, he talked about the deteriorating infrastructure in Nadi, he talked about the promises that this Government made about Nadi becoming a city.

“My friends, never in the history of this country, under no government, the Ratu Mara government, the Rabuka government, the Qarase government, never under any of these governments since 1990 have we had such disastrous health services in this country, and that is the result of what this Government has done.”

Prof Prasad said voters must not be fooled by the Government’s current tactics.

“If you look at the infrastructure in this country, the potholes, you can see throughout the country, graders working, people walking on the roads, there are signs of potholes being filled.

“They are running around the country now using your money.

“They are all scurrying around trying to talk to your people, using your resources.”

Meanwhile, The People’s Alliance leader Sitiveni Rabuka said Fiji needed a change in direction.

“We are here because you know, we have to change direction and we are here to go with you in the direction we believe is good for our country,” he said.

“We’ve all lived under the same leaders for so long and we know much of the problems that we have seen. “We are going to be moving away from dictatorial leadership.”
