Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama has warned mem­bers of Cab­i­net not to bring pol­i­tics into Gov­ern­ment’s re­build­ing pro­gramme. He said he had told mem­bers of cab­i­net that the re­build­ing had to be pri­ori­tised. Speak­ing at a talanoa ses­sion at the Bureivanua Dis­trict School com­pound yes­ter­day, he told the peo­ple of Si­lana vil­lage in Dawasamu, Tailevu that they should be aware of politi­cians who would be vis­it­ing cy­clone dam­aged ar­eas and talk­ing to them of other things not re­lated to Gov­ern­ment’s re­build­ing pro­gramme.

He said if any politi­cian vis­ited their vil­lage he or she should bring some­thing to help them. Mr Bain­i­marama said in his last visit to the vil­lage he saw So­cial Demo­cratic Lib­eral Party par­lia­men­tar­ian Josefa Du­laki stand­ing on the vil­lage ground. The vil­lage spokesman Mr Aisea Cama said Mr Du­laki had vis­ited a few SODELPA mem­bers in the vil­lage and had not re­turned to see them again. Mr Bain­i­marama said those politi­cians would be go­ing around just to crit­i­cise the good work the Gov­ern­ment was do­ing He said for Gov­ern­ment, pol­i­tics was put aside and had con­cen­trated on see­ing that all the cy­clone af­fected peo­ple re­ceived help and what­ever they wanted. The Prime Min­is­ter brushed aside claims by a po­lit­i­cal party that cy­clone help was con­cen­trated to some peo­ple. He said elec­tions would be in 2018 and it was still a long way to go. “My Gov­ern­ment will con­cen­trate on its re­build­ing pro­gramme as this was very im­por­tant for the af­fected peo­ple,” he said.
