Bijai Prasad sought Political Assistance for land deals?

I never asked for favours from Chaudhry – Prasad

Publish date/time: 07/05/2014 [08:09]
The Vice President of the proposed FijiFirst Bijai Prasad has today denied claims that he wanted special favors from Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry when he was part of the FLP.

This follows Chaudhry’s comments today that Prasad was not removed but left the party after he did not get assistance relating to his land deals.

However, Prasad who is a former FLP senator and former Nadi branch President of the FLP, said Chaudhry was planning to replace him in 2007 as Fiji Labour Party’s Nadi branch President.

Prasad said he resigned from the post after exposing a number of things about Chaudhry in the branch meeting in 2007.

He remained a member of the FLP.

Bijai Prasad said a planned motion in the FLP National Council in 2007 was then moved to get him out of the meeting.

On the land deal issue, Prasad stressed that he did not ask for any special privilege from Chaudhry.

He said he has nothing to hide and he only needed clarification on why the Lands Department in 2007 was not releasing the 10 leases to him although he had a written undertaking from the Fiji Development Bank that the leasehold market value of $1,000 per lease would be paid after the release of the leases.

Prasad said he was asked to leave the FLP because he spoke against Chaudhry and some executives on the manner in which the party was being run.

He said he had also criticized other party executives for not having the guts to ask questions in meetings.

Prasad said he has done nothing wrong and was not scared of Chaudhry.

  1. Mr. Prasad said he did not ask for any special privileges.

    The Lands Dept conditions were old and should have been changed to allow Mr. Prasad to acquire the land as FDB had given an undertaking.

    There’s nothing wrong with this as an undertaking or some sort of bank guarantee is all that should be needed. This is how modern business are conducted.

    All that MC could have done was to ask the Lands Dept to relook at their processes or inform the Lands Dept to issue a letter also guaranteeing the deal will be on when the payment from FDB is received.

    But MC did not help his party member.

    There is nothing wrong when your intentions of helping will not break any law or financial rules.

  2. The Fiji Labour Party has called on Minister for Elections, the illegal Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum to resign after his appointment as the general secretary of the proposed Fiji First party. Labour leader Mahendra Chaudhry said in a statement that Sayed-Khaiyum cannot continue to be the Minister for Elections after his appointment as it is a conflict of interest and abuse of office. “Failure to do so will tantamount to abuse of office.

  3. Khaiyum and Bainimarama have stolen millions from the people of Fiji and they continue to do so through corrupt practices orchestrated through Khaiyum’s corrupt aunty Nur Bano Ali and her husband. The Auditor General is not allowed to report on it to the people including the deal surrounding the sale of Rewa Dairy to CJ Patel, who also owns the Fiji Sun.

  4. Do not use Khaiyum and Bainimarama to shield and justify mahen chaudhry’s thieving. two wrongs don’t make a right.

  5. What about dr Tupeni baba and conman peter foster

    What about Ms S radrodro who has a bribey case.

    What about Mick Beddose who stole fromNBF and hasn’t paid his loan for the past 15 years.

    More sodelpa names soon.
