Male’, Maldives – President of People’s National Congress (PNC) party of Maldives, Abdul Raheem Abdulla (Adhurey) has said that India wants the Former President of the Maldives Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom out of the political spotlight by keeping him in jail.
He said this while speaking at the ceremony held by the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) to launch their “Loyalty” card. He added on that the suffering being caused to the former president would be investigated when they come in to power and that those people who are involved in this would be brought in front of justice.
Adhurey said that Yameen has been put in jail and made to suffer by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih together with the Speaker of Parliament, Former President Mohamed Nasheed, with the help of India.
“This is something India wants. India wants President Yameen out of the Maldivian political spotlight” Adhurey said.
He said that India is behind this because India could not do as they pleased in Maldives when the Former President Yameen was in power and that it was because he did not allow Maldives to be enslaved by India.
“It’s because he (Yameen) would not have this country keep on begging from them (India). President Yameen would not wait to eat when and what they give, or to wait for them to give something when they pleased to develop this country. Because he (Yameen) would get help from all around the world to make his developmental visions come true” Adhurey told elaborating on the reasons.
He added on that if the Former President would not wait for anyone and if he did not get help from the western countries, he would have approached the eastern countries to materialize his developmental plans and that India knows this all too well and that this is the reason why India wants the former president gone from politics.
Adhurey had also called the president to resign immediately and to hold a multiparty election as soon as possible. The opposition PPM/ PNC coalition have been increasing their activities recently and have called for the resignation of the president sevela times stating that the current administration had failed to deliver their rpesidential pledges. Former President of the Maldives, Dr. Mohamed Waheed Hassan Manik and the former Vice President Dr. Mohamed Jameel has also joined the opposition this year and have been active in the opposition activities.
