Religious group defends Jugnauth, blasts media

Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth has been overwhelmed by non-ending congratulations, compliments and flattery at the recent launch of the Divali celebrations at the Hindu House in Cassis.

The Hindu House is a prominent Hindu socio-cultural organisation in Mauritius.

l’Express reported that Jugnauth, who attended the event along with his wife, Kobita, and other government MPs received praise throughout the evening.

Mrs Luxshmee Ramdhun-Bundhun, President of the Hindu House, reportedly congratulated the PM’s achievements since the start of the pandemic, adding that the latter has chaired over 280 High Level Committee sessions since last year.

“The Prime Minister will fight this invisible enemy, just like those who are visible,” she said.

“Prophets of doom are waiting for the sanitary situation in the country to worsen. But fortunately, the PM and his team are doing a tremendous job.”

She hit at those who engaged in “doing politics on dead people” – referring to the Soopramanien Kistnen case. “The Prime Minister must not be afraid; he will always have the support of the Hindu House,” she vowed.

Hindu priest Acharya Hanslall Sooklall, also speaking at the event, severely blasted the local media.

At first, I thought it was temples, mosques or churches that were dividing our country. In fact, it’s journalists who are dividing us,” he claimed.

Prime Minister Jugnauth said his government will focus on work “despite the gossip, lies, false allegations and attacks” on his ministers and on himself.

He also portrayed as “blind people” those who claim that the country is going to the dogs.

The exit from the gray list of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) was also commented on by Pravind Jugnauth.

He said he was proud of this outcome and welcomed the congratulations of the FATF. However, he claimed to have observed a “lack of solidarity from some people”, whom he called “anti-patriotic”, at the time when Mauritius was put on the list.

During the event, also attended by Indian High Commissioner to Mauritius, Mrs K. Nandini Singla, Jugnauth announced the imminent launch of news in Bhojpuri language on national TV.
