The National, Thursday July 18th, 2013
TREMS Gaindus’ letter (July 5) is very much welcomed and appreciated.
At least there are people out there monitoring how their MP is doing.
But to say that the two MPs (Richard Maru and John Simon) are not the same because they are from different electorates means the writer fails to understand that no matter where you come from, as long as you are an MP, you receive the same amount of funds and they should be put to good, long-term use.
Buying vehicles is good enough, but will it benefit the students and everyone else in the long run?
We must not only think of what we are seeing today, but also plan beyond for our next generation if we want true development.
It does not matter who you are, but if you can use your expertise and God-given wisdom wisely, you can make a difference to your electorate, province or country as a whole.
Furthermore, for the writer to say that I am not from the electorate means he does not understand the challenges that I, as an observer, am giving to the MP and his district officers.
We are no longer in the Stone Age where people do no t know what is happening around them.
We are linked by the media and whether you are in America or Europe, latest updates of our villages, towns and cities are at our fingertips.
Finally, I really appreciate what the MP has done and is doing.
My challenge to him is to upgrade all feeder roads, build new classrooms, dormitories and teachers’ houses, set up a loan scheme for people to start small businesses and initiate some projects that suit the electorate such as rice farming or rear cattle as the electorate has land aplenty for such projects.
