SODELPA MP, Salote Radrodro says the Minister of Economy has come to parliament with this budget just like previous ones, and it is another smoke and mirrors trick.
While opposing the 2022/2023 National Budget, Radrodro says it is another attempt to hoodwink the people of Fiji, and for this one it is simply a grandstanding, electioneering budget targeting instant gratification and short term benefits rather than sustainable economic recovery.
She says this budget just like previous ones are covered in a blanket of deception, fancy words, and big figures only to make the people feel good.
Radrodro asks about the capital projects that have been promised since 2015.
Radrodro adds that one just has to go past the CWM Hospital to see the deplorable condition that our biggest hospital is in.
She says every year we hear of budgetary allocations for repair and maintenance works for CWM Hospital, but nothing substantial has really changed.
