Chaudhry said to be organising a march and rallying for support

The Fiji Labour Party Leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, appears to be trying to drum up publicity for himself again.
 
According to sources, Chaudhry and his mate, Felix Anthony (right), from the Fiji Trades Union Congress, are trying to organise a protest march, for next month.  

 
No-one's sure what the march is about but those who know about it say the opportunistic Chaudhry, who only pops his head out when he needs publicity, has approached several groups  including the Methodist Church.

 
They say Chaudhry is canvassing support even though he knows the regime has banned all marches and that his one is unlikely to get a permit.  


Coupfourpointfive has been told the organisations he  approached have all declined outright because they can see through him and his single-minded efforts for publicity.
 
Under the Public Emergency Regulations, all large public gatherings and marches need to be approved by the illegal government. Two marches (the anti-violence one by the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre and the one by the Coalition on Human Rights to coincide with World Human Rights Day)  had permits to march in December but were cancelled after an unidentified group, Save Fiji Movement, claimed they were organising thousands to march against Voreqe Bainimarama.

 
The regime cancelled the permit at the last minute saying it was a 'precautionary measure.'

 
Sources say Chaudhry knows he won't be able to get a permit to march but his aim is to get himself in the limelight again and to gain sympathy, just as he did he when he went to Rakiraki last year to meet with farmers.

 
As he did then, he met with local farmers, despite apparently being told by police he wasn't allowed to.  Chaudhry was subsequently arrested and charged for breaking the PER, winning media coverage and international sympathy.

While I dislike Frank and his cronies and what they're doing to Fiji I hate to see Mahendra Chaudhry or Qarase come back into Fiji politics. They are both bad news as they are both racists. Fiji can do without their leadership styles. We're four years into the coup -- why try to organise marches/protests now? The time to show true leadership has long passed and all three so-called national leaders, Chaudhry, Qarase and Beddoes chose to stick their heads in the mud instead of doing what was expected - sticking their necks out for the people of Fiji. Chaudhry, of course, decided to have a taste of the dessert Frank had on offer and when it was just becoming really tasty, Frank decided to cut him off. Now Chaudhry's head is in the sand and his butt in the air. The people of Fiji know stink when they smell it. Unfortunately we gave Frank too much rope hoping he'd hang himself. We underestimated his naval background and the fact that that rope became his lifeline. Frank has the power (with the guns), he has the police and the prisons behind him, he has a growing number of provincial councils now supporting him (even if the confederacies have not indicated their stand) and he has the business community dancing to whichever tune he wants to play.
So, organising protests/marches at this late stage is more self-serving in intent than being in the national interest. We're no longer in the drain, we're in the cesspool of corruption, nepotism, favouristism, cronyism, and Fran-Aiyaz Khaiyumism!
So, thank you for your march Chaudhry - best you take a hike yourself. And take Qarase and Beddoes along for the ride.

Hate to say it but Chaudary is doing what needs to be done. Depending on what kind of support he has behind him there should be someone else to gather the support from the traditional Fijian alliances and the Methodist church. I don't think any of these institutions will be willing to follow Chaudary so it has to be some kind of team effort. From whats been happening on the ground though it seems a lot of the provinces have sold out to the highest bidder which at the moment is Vore since he's got his hands on the our taxpayer dollar. If there is to be some kind of protest all the different organisions need to put aside their differences and come together. Chiefs, Church, Unions, Farmers, Former army... etc. On a side not will you take a look at the size of those Tape Recorders back in those days! You could knock him out with a whack to the head with one of those things!

Go for it MPC. Whatever it takes, the illegal government needs to be removed. Bainimarama is more evil than MPC.

Chaudhary you are the man. At least you have more guts than all indegenous fijians put together to stand up to this illegal junta.

Ratu where is your bati balavu & bati lailai when you and your so called chiefs have been trampled in the dirt and rendered as useless and bystanders by Sir Khaiyum.

My advice is stand back and and look at what a gutless people you are.

Where were you when Chaudhary had a gun put to his head but stood up for democracy in 2000.

So please shut up when you and your likes do not know what true guts and tabu soro is all about.

You and your lot are all fakes and only know the io saka syndrome and will even sell yourselves for few horses.

Freedom fighters said...

Who else have got the guts .. we will support anyone who will lead us to democracy and freedom .. whether it be labour party or the army itself....

Give him credit that he has balls.... unlike the chiefs

Chaudhry's life reads like a continous Bollywood movie - starring him - son as minor support. Can't wait for part showing how he magically transforms an internationally competitive multi million export industry into a local dysfunctional basket case cast played by people recruited from St Giles - QEB.

Will go down in Taukei urban myth.

You and your so-called sources are just a load of crap! You go around maligning people without an iota of evidence, based on pure malicious fabrication. Felix Anthony and Mahendra Chaudhry will survive despite your mischievous lies! I dare you to print this.

Chaudry and Felix. Very bad combination. I agree with Ratu, both should be in jail.
How about Pita Driti and Roko Ului come and lead a march.

The picture is interesting.Chaudary with Indian reporter.Is he in India and when did he go?
I thought India has distanced itself as part of the Commonwealth in isolating this misguided coup?

Hansard@9.28am You're right about MPC being cut out of the yummy dessert. He's been looking through the window licking his lips ever since then thinking 'Please, sir can I have more?"

Distribute your ill gotten millions to the poor and you might regain some support.

Anything Chodo is involved in will get rubbished. He's too unpopular although many say he has the balls to front Vore. He has the profile, because he is a former prime minister and the leader of the fiji labour party, but he divides doesn't unite.

Fiji Loyal said...

@Hansard: What do you think the answer is to the cesspool of corruption, nepotism, favourism, cronyism and Fran-Aiyaz Khaiyumism?

well its better for mpc to do it as all others seem to be too gutless to act. if you cant beat him dont crticise him fellas.

Let mpc lead nt like nfp puftas

Chodo is doing this to gain favour with 'the people' that are against the this military led govt. Am against it too but Chodo has ULTERIOR MOTIVES. NOTHING he does is from his heart or for the people of Fiji! Everything is for some power gaining or to gain favours with the Indian & Int'l govt that he has LOST favours with.... CHODO wants to look like a saint now but lets not let him get away from the fact that CHODO has a lot to LOSE whilst this govt is still in power!

Sceptical. said...

@ the man.

He hasn't done anything yet - all I'm reading is typical Chaudhry spin generating self promoting publicity - not surprised C4 saw thru it - believe it when I see it? (him leading march).

Have just heard that the Illegal President has been given his TERMINATION letter.
Is that why Chaudhary is organising all this?
Any guesses who will be the next Illegal Pressy?
How about Commander and Commander-in- Chief, wrapped in one? Sounds good huh?

Anonymous said...

The illegal govt shud send Mahendra Chaudary, felix anthony, dan Urai first to prison> they can organise the march for sdemocvracy from inside the maximum cell. Fiji pls do not spare these idiot cohots, thanks for always jumping ship. labour supporters ask MPC to share his $ millions he stole from you all. Felix & Dan for conning the FNPF members regarding the dismissal of so many execitives, managers & staff and paying themselves handsome board allowances more than what the Olota as CEO was being paid for.

Another roti stuffup said...

Why would any Fijians want to march with a loser like chodo and his girlfriend vayeshnoi?
Know your place chodo - permanent opposition!! How many times do you have to be reminded who is in charge? Now go and get me a beer, boy!

I'll say what I've said from the begining. While this government is doing something worth while it does not excuse the sins of the past.

What they have been doing is abosolutely great in talking to the locals and having the problems resovled. But that in no way takes away the murders they've committed.

I hope Frank see's past all the lies and bullshit that some of his ministers have and get's rid of all of them.

I also hope that Frank has the balls to do the right thing and at the end of it all stand for the crimes he has committed.

Unfortunately that would see him hanged.

Frank if you think what you're are doing is right and the people agree they will not stand behind you unlink Shavez and other great leader. But if you're man enough when everything is said and done stand for your crimes and let the public decide. Don't hide say everything that you've archived for this country. The unfortunate thing is that only the older generation will agree with me and see the bigger picture.

If you disagree with me for all of you out there please try and get a copy of the documentary "war on democracy" and see for yourselves what foriegn polocies can do to your perceptions.

Why won’t these parasites go away and die peacefully they are nothing but a blight on society and have wreak disharmony among the various ethnic groups within Fiji.

They all claim to be serving the people yet the people were no better off under their administration in-fact the only people they were serving were themselves who could trust such vultures.

I would encourage this Indian fellow and his cohorts to demonstrate their avidity and protest against the Bainimarama regime because he obviously has an axe to grind but he must bear in mind those foreign governments that stood by him will no longer support his cause.

The people of Fiji are have woken to the pernicious ideals of their past leaders and not only want but demand change.

That said Fiji must now look for young vibrant and well educated leaders to lead the country into the future but most importantly these past leaders must not be allowed back in the halls of power for they have literally sodomised the country.

All the best in the forth coming years Bainimarama and shake a leg on that new constitution the people can’t wait for eternity.

@Fiji Loyal: We've gone through four years of dictatiorial rule and while we might not wish to admit it, some changes have been made for the better - changes that would NOT have been possible through political parliamentary rule.
Frank may be naive but not stupid. He started his campaign hitting out at the taukei instutions - the GCC, the Methodist Church and the Chiefly systems, thus endearing himslef to the Indo-Fijian community with Chaudhry as his showpiece. He's now moving to re-consolidate his taukei backing by providing bridges, roads, housing and even horses for rural villages.
Corruption and nepotism, cannot be controlled overnight .. they will always exist in every society in one form or another. The only difference is the level to which they are practised and in Fiji's case, the freedom Frank has afforded himself has fostered greater corruptive practices.
What we need to be doing is begin planning for 2014 when elections are held. Frank might argue that the new Parliament will have to toe the line he and his goons have set. However, there is nothing preventing the new Parliament from passing legislation to investigate Frank and his cronies and the various deals they've struck under the protection of their Decrees.
The new Parliament can also instigate legal proceedings to inquire into the affairs of the FNPF and prosecute senior executive staff for abuse of their fiduciary responsibilities.
While Frank says he will be watching the new Parliament, the people of Fiji know they've had enough. If he overtakes any new Parliament, he will be surprised to see that the people of Fiji will not be as compliant as they have been since 2006. They've lost too much already to allow Frank and his cronies to muscle their way in again the next time around. I predict that any future coup in Fiji will not be as simple as the ones we've had - there will be bloodshed this time around because like the politicians, all the coup leaders since 1987 have not delivered on their promises. And the only ones who suffer are the ordinary people of our beloved country.
So to Fiji Loyal and all others - because there is no visible sign of anyone attempting to cut Frank's rule short, let's start documenting all the corruption, abuse etc for the day when we will have our chance to get back at Frank and Company.
In the end, the people of Fiji will triumph and more likely than not - without the leadership of Chaudhry, Qarase or Beddoes.

@Hansard

Prepare yourself for elections in 2014? Wow, how gullible can anyone be. There is not a single signal from the regime that elections will be held. To the contrary all actions we have seen clearly indicate that Frank has absolutely no intention to give away absolute power. Remember when he said a couple of weeks ago, that Fiji would never (!) join the Forum again? Would that not be something an elected government would have to decide?

@ Dreamer

I fear that you may be right… Frank's time will have to come. History will be his judge and perhaps, his executioner.
