President calls APNU’s attack on Housing Ministry “Vicious”

President Donald Ramotar has lash out at A Partnership for National Unity's attack against the staff at the Ministry of Housing and the work carried out by the Ministry in ensuring that every Guyanese own a home.
The Guyanese Head of State addressing the opening of 3rd International Building Expo being hosted by the Housing Ministry at the Guyana National Stadium this evening said the work of his Government, especially the housing sector speaks for itself.

President Ramotar described the attacks on the Ministry as vicious, which he said seeks to derail the hard and tireless efforts of the staff at the housing ministry.

Making reference to the G $20.9B slashed from the 2012 National Budget by the opposition parliamentary party the president noted that such callousness is an abuse to the working class of the country.

He warned that his government will not stand idly by and allow the opposition to taint development with corruption. The Preisdent notes that since the PPP/C government took office the Ministry of Housing was reinvigorated with energy with the aim of ensuring that citizens won their own home.

Government remains steadfast ensuring that the targeted 30,000 hosuelots are distributed within the next five years. The construction sector has contributed significantly to the country's gross domestic product the president said.

He reiterated that his government will continue to meet the needs of citizens hence improving their living standards despite the efforts by detractors to derail Guyana’s progress.
