PPP pro­foundly sad­dened by the death of Ali Baksh

Weekend Mirror - - EDITORIAL -

The

Peo­ple’s Pro­gres­sive Party (PPP) is deeply sad­dened over the pass­ing of its for­mer Ex­ec­u­tive and long­stand­ing Mem­ber and Min­is­ter within the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture, Com­rade Ali Baksh af­ter a brief ill­ness . He has given years of yeo­man ser­vice to the Party and his self­less ef­forts in the strug­gle to re­turn free­dom to Guyana re­mains a hall­mark of his long and dis­tin­guished po­lit­i­cal ca­reer.

Hail­ing from Esse­quibo, Com­rade Baksh served loy­ally in var­i­ous ca­pac­i­ties within the PPP in­clud­ing Party Su­per­vi­sor and Mem­ber of the Cen­tral and Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tees. He ded­i­cat­edly served Re­gion 2 for many years and dur­ing his ten­ure as Re­gional Chair­man, he worked as­sid­u­ously to help im­proved the lives of res­i­dents through the de­vel­op­ment of the so­cial and phys­i­cal in­fra­struc­tures.

From Novem­ber 2011 to May 2015, he com­mit­tedly ex­e­cuted the du­ties as Min­is­ter within the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture, vastly as­sist­ing in de­liv­er­ing the man­date of the PPP/Civic govern­ment of pro­vid­ing bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment for all Guyanese farm­ers and in­creased mar­kets for their pro­duce.

His knowl­edge of what was needed in the com­mu­ni­ties was a valu­able as­set in his ser­vice to the coun­try.

The PPP is grate­ful that Com­rade Baksh was part of its struc­ture and for his in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tions to the de­vel­op­ment of the Party and Guyana. He will be pro­foundly missed.

Our Party and its Gen­eral Sec­re­tary would like to ex­tend deep­est con­do­lences to his im­me­di­ate fam­ily, rel­a­tives and friends fol­low­ing his demise.
