If the Remake 2000 was already established since two years, why then the MMM leader have to seek a second approval from the MMM Assembly Delegates on the 22nd March, 2014? Does Bérenger have a card up his sleeve? Will the scenario of 2000 repeat itself? We all know what happened when Prime Minister Ramgoolam dissolved Parliament in 2000. In fact, that shrewd tactic did boomerang on him.

What about compensation of victims of accident by uninsured drivers?

What is the Ministry of Education doing to protect us against the amount of bogus qualifications in this country? These diploma mills employ local agents to do their canvassing in Third World Countries, like Mauritius, in order to recruit students for “Distance Learning Courses”. Those diplomas and degrees are not approved at all by the Education authorities of many countries!

For quite some time now, we have noted that many crimes, especially atrocious ones, remain unsolved. Even accused persons who were arrested and brought before justice have been found not guilty and were released scot free.

As the New Year has just gone by, we notice that there are many job agents about, canvassing for both local and overseas jobs. One should be very careful not to fall in such a trap. Not all jobs, whether local or overseas, as promised by those local agents are genuine and approved jobs.

Our Health Authority needs to control the prices of medicines. Certain pharmaceutical drugs importers may have some points worth pondering on in connection with the issue of the exorbitant price increase of drugs. The government should not ignore the impact effect that higher prices of medicines could have on those patients living in poverty.
