The National, Thursday February 27th, 2014
I REFER to grant recipients of the national or provincial governments.
The funds disbursed for projects are not the MP’s pocket money and therefore, any individual or organisation that receives government grants should not praise an MP.
Fo rexample, the Unitech students of Southern Highlands thanking their governor.
If they were smart enough, they should have praised the SH provincial government or the national government or even the taxpayers of PNG.
Such attitude of thanking an MP has built a culture whereby projects funded under DSIP and many more have been claimed by elected MPs as they had funded them.
The funding or grants are not the MP’s pocket money or part of their profit in private business.
