If anyone is to blame for the fate of Rundheersing Bheenick (also called Manou Bheenick), former Governor of the Bank of Mauritius, it can be none other than former PM Navinchandra Ramgoolam who, at the 10 December 2014 general elections, the people threw out of office because of his incompetence and thirst for power in a planned elective dictatorship with the then opposition leader Paul Bérenger, who abdicated his role under the nose of the President Kailash Purryag who allegedly found no « valid reason » to revoke him.

Even though, by and large, former PM Navin Ramgoolam and his ally Paul Bérenger in their Labour-MMM alliance copied chunks from the MSM-PMSD-ML manifesto and, were it merely for electoral promises, both alliances should have fared equally at the 10th December 2014 general elections. The manner in which the 75% turnout (or thereabout) of voters cast their votes indicates that Mauritians generally could not stand the shenanigans, the arrogance, the incompetence of both Ramgoolam and Bérenger and their sheer hunger for power through elective dictatorship.

While on 26 November 2014 in Phoenix PM Navin Ramgoolam attacks the competence of apolitical world renowned scientist and former Vice Chancellor of the University of Mauritius Mrs Ameenah Gurib-Fakim because she has been put forward as future President by the MSM-PMXD-ML opposition, the very next day we find the emergence of a previously unknown « All Muslim Congress » following suit as if they are acting in concert.

Shreemati Shushma Swaraj, Indian Minister for External Affairs (Foreign Minister) in newly elected Narendra Modi’s BJP government, who when in opposition, having survived the Gujarat atrocities in 2002, whose blame was put on the shoulders of BJP, especially on Narendra Modi (allegations never proven) who was Gujarat Chief Minister at the time, is a well-bred and intelligent person, which explains why she is number 3 in Modi’s Government, who was invited for the commemoration of the arrival of Indentured Labourers in Mauritius held on 2nd November 2014. Unfortunately, PM Ramgoolam mistook the commemoration for a religious function.

Sushma Swaraj, the Indian External Affairs Minister (FM) due on official visit to Mauritius in November 2014, may even take Ramgoolam’s ‘reason’ for not informing Mauritians of the date of the general elections as an insult to her, her government and her people as this is not the way Indian Democracy functions. Just put the question to her.
