Ministry of the Presidency being repainted in green
The Ministry of the Presidency is being repainted green – the colour symbolic of the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) arm of the coalition Government.
The building, located on Shiv Chanderpaul Drive in Georgetown, is currently barricaded with plywood boards as rehabilitation works are being undertaken.
Earlier last year, People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Executive Member and Parliamentarian Priya Manickchand had called on the APNU/AFC Government to desist from “greening and yellowing” Guyana.
She had expressed concerns over the subliminal message Government is sending and the fact that the Administration appears to be forcing its politics on Guyanese who do not subscribe.
Manickchand said the “greening and yellowing” of Guyana is reminiscent of the days when the flag of the former People’s National Congress (PNC) was flown over the Court of Appeal – a signal of party paramountcy.
Government had painted in green and yellow some bridges, benches, sections of public infrastructure and even the boats, buses and bicycles distributed by the Administration.
