Assistant Minister for Employment, Productivity, Industrial Relations, Youth and Sport, Alvick Maharaj says in their desperation to form the next government, the opposition can go to any extent even if it means lying in parliament and lying to the Fijians outside parliament. 

While responding to the President's speech in parliament, Maharaj says it seems like the opposition is sure that they won't be able to defeat FijiFirst in the elections so they are now calling on them to resign. 

Maharaj says he cannot understand what the opposition means when they say that nothing seems to be right at the moment.

He says the government is fixing roads however they agree that it is taking some time but he says quality comes when only a considerable amount of time is spent doing it. 

He says the opposition members should have Fiji at heart and they should not use this phase to flourish their agenda.

Meanwhile, Maharaj also revealed in parliament today that they will be conducting more than three hundred labour inspections to ensure that they provide justice to the workers and provide relevant information to the employers.
