The Leader of National Federation Party, Professor Biman Prasad has supported Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s motion for parliament to strongly condemn Bulitavu’s racist and derogatory statements about Indo Fijian and iTaukei women.
In doing so, Prasad says Bulitavu should hang his head in shame and publicly apologise to all women.
Prasad says as a lawyer, Bulitavu is trying to blame Indo Fijian women for murder which he claims has spread to the iTaukei community and also goes to blame the iTaukei women.
Prasad says Bulitavu did not make passing remarks or cracked a joke with a colleague but denigrated our women, mothers, sisters, Girmitiya and iTaukei mothers in rural areas.
Prasad says this motion should serve as a reminder to all of them to stop being dishonorable and that they got elected by the people and start the march forward in harmony to achieve lasting social, economic and political advancement of all people.
Prasad also urged members of the government side to concentrate on issues stressing that political parties have come and disappeared but the National Federation Party will remain the foundation of the principles of political morality.
He says it pains him to hear the politicization of the motion.
