Mitchell on the warpath over government spending

The opposition leader also indicated that the money should have been used to provide financing to the Grenada Authority for the Regulation of Financial Institutions (GARFIN), instead of government attempting to impose further burdens on insurance policy holders.

Mitchell emphasized that this is happening when the entire country is going through trying times, when businesses are closing or sending workers home, when the new secondary school and T.A. Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) graduates have very little hope of finding rewarding jobs, and when the hotel and manufacturing sectors are crying out for rescue.

He indicated that for government to spend $2million on the purchase of property in such a difficult time is a demonstration of poor financial management and a total lack of concern for the peoples’ plight and the country’s future.

“To use scarce resources to purchase property rather than directing it towards meeting the pressing needs of government workers and the poor, or stimulating the economy, at this time of unprecedented economic, financial and social problems is unconscionable as it is unforgivable,” Mitchell said. 

He urged the government to listen to the cry of the people, and to implement the measures that are urgently required to turn the economy around and bring much needed relief to the Grenadian people.

Until such time, all purchases of property or other such wasteful spending should be suspended, Mitchell stated.
