The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) recognizes that the Peoples’ Progressive Party (PPP), which was established in 1950, throughout its history, has pioneered, and has been in the forefront, of the struggle for political, economic, social and national development in Guyana.
The IAC foresees that the PPP will always have a role in the development of Guyana and therefore the PPP should continue to address its origins which are steeped in the foundation of the rice and sugar industries in particular and the working people in general.
The IAC believes, however that in 2015, the PPP should not embark upon a policy of non-cooperation and civil disobedience following the recently held general and regional elections but should pursue one of critical support for the new administration.
The IAC believes that the PPP should give critical support to the APNU+AFC Coalition government for any progressive measure related to those activities, programs and policies that would achieve national cohesion under the “One Nation” rubric of national development but oppose any reactionary moves and criticize all shortcomings.
The IAC calls upon the PPP to pursue these initiatives immediately in order to defend the national interest as defined in terms of independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity against the threat of external interference by Venezuela.
The IAC recognizes that at this critical juncture in the history of Guyana, the PPP must take up its thirty-two (32) seats in the National Assembly and present a united front with the coalition government against the brazenly immoral claims of belligerent Venezuela.
The IAC urges the PPP to understand that the destabilization of the APNU+AFC Coalition government by external forces would automatically lead to the demise of the former itself.
