5th of May should be Indian Arrival Day

Dear Editor,
I hereby call on the President and the Minister of Home Affairs to ensure that, come 5th of May this year, the holiday would be designated Indian Arrival Day. In addition, the month of May should be designated as Indian or East Indian Heritage Month, to celebrate and commemorate the monumental contributions of our East Indian brothers and sisters to the building of Guyana.
I trust and hope that the Government would correct the past travesty of naming the day Arrival Day. I call on organizations to raise their collective voices to ensure that this request is promptly dealt with by the Government.
Yours sincerely,
Chris Persaud
