Jugnauth blasts Al-Jazeera, says it acted ‘in bad faith’

Published

Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth has hit hard at international TV news channel Al-Jazeera over a recent report claiming that India is building a “3 km airstrip and two large jetties designed at Agalega for military purposes.”

Al-Jazeera had earlier this month reported that India was secretly transforming Agaléga into a military hub for its navy.

Jugnauth told the media that “some media here have infected those abroad. Al-Jazeera has come up with a lot of nonsense. they asked us questions, which we responded to. But none of our replies were taken on board and published in its report. This is bad faith. They should have at least published our replies,” Jugnauth was quoted as saying.

Pravind Jugnauth underlined that the “development works” being carried out in Agalega is “unprecedented”.

“There have been other governments that tried in the past, but they failed. When I’m able to do it, it seems some people are jealous about it, because they couldn’t do it,” he added.

“Mauritian authorities will have control over the airstrip, the jetties and other facilities. Some are saying that Mauritius has given Agalega to India. This is a lie,” Jugnauth claimed.
