By Abena RockcliffeGeneral Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee has refuted claims madePPP General Secretary, Clement Roheeby his former comrade, Ralph Ramkarran, to the effect that he (Ramkarran) had been abused for many years in the PPP because he refused to humble himself to the powers that be, namely former President Bharrat Jagdeo.In his latest column titled “Jagdeo and the PPP – lifestyle and politics” published on his website www.conversationtree.gy, Ramkarran made known the torture he went through during his later days spent as a member of the PPP.Ramkarran said within the PPP, many intimidatory techniques exist, and those are mainly projected by Jagdeo.  The former PPP executive member said, “Direct abuse is a major one. Subtle threats of dismissal from employment are another.”He noted that most people have jobs with the party or government, which they need to secure for their livelihood. “This is enough to encourage silence…Dissentient voices have been effectively stilled in the PPP,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, even though Jagdeo is widely criticized privately. This is the answer to the question often asked: how is it that Jagdeo has got such a hold over the PPP that no one dares to oppose him?”Ramkarran said that he spoke out for years in the PPP, “subjecting myself to intense abuse and isolation, until it became necessary to ensure that I no longer remain within its ranks. No one else has so far dared to oppose Jagdeo.”Ramkarran also made reference to the fact that PPP allowed weeks to pass before defending the legacy of PPP founder, Dr. Cheddi Jagan,holesale Soccer Jerseys, which he said was tainted by Jagdeo in his attempt to justify his Cadillac lifestyle.Ralph RamkarranThe former PPP stalwart said, “As expected the General Secretary of the PPP, Clement Rohee, refused to comment on the controversy, just as the previous General Secretary, Donald Ramotar, refused to comment on Jagdeo’s insult to Mrs. Jagan when she called for a restoration of advertisements to the SN in 2006. No one in the PPP will now ever be able to speak to the Jagans’ simple and humble lifestyle, and urge its emulation, for fear of offending Jagdeo. ..Jagdeo said that their lifestyle was luxurious.

If you were to ask me if there were strong and combative views between himself and any member of the party leadership, I would be the last to deny that that was so. That is a matter of course within the leadership of the party,” Rohee asserted.He said that the PPP has a tradition called democratic centralism, where after the matter has been discussed at length a decision is arrived at by the majority,Cheap Jerseys, and those who are in minority have to “subject themselves” to the decision of the majority.He also said, “Sometimes there are people who cannot subject themselves to the majority view; they think their view is the right view.
