National Federation Party Leader, Professor Biman Prasad has asked the Government if the allocation of $300,000 for purchasing aluminium boats for the Eastern Division is a vote buying exercise while Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says Prasad is so attuned to the elections in their little conspiratorial box that everything is about elections and votes.
Sayed-Khaiyum says Prasad is an obtuse human being and he and his other two stooges on NFP constantly make crass, flippant comments.
He says it is a stupid comment to make.
The Minister adds the allocation is for the Ministry of Fisheries to do their work to support fisheries extension in the Eastern Division.
