Home Letters Rates increases by Govt vs toll increase by BBCI
While I do not support the proposed toll increases by the Berbice Bridge Company Ltd, with regards to the Berbice River Bridge I contend that the move by the PNC-led APNU/AFC Government of President David Granger to take control of the Berbice Bridge is draconian.
How does this Government justify increasing rates and prices, including VAT on electricity and water which brings hardships to thousands of Guyanese, while refusing to allow BBCI to increase tolls? I do not support a huge increase in tolls, but a company has income and it has expenses. The Government must demonstrate that BBCI was profiteering with the proposed increase in tolls before taking such archaic draconian measures.
