First students from India were compared to faulty fridges from China by National list MP Kanwaljeet Bakshi and now National list MP Parmjeet Parmar is calling them “criminals”.
There is absolutely no foundation to this baseless charge. The Indian students had their immigration documents forged by their agents and are facing deportation but they are the victims of criminal activity by agents and schools.
And then the Prime Minister had to compare children living in poverty with rodents. Words like sympathy, empathy and compassion obviously don’t feature in this Government’s training manual for MPs.
As seen in most of her public debates Parmar is clearly unable to acknowledge issues affecting people in her electorate. Her responses to people’s questions seem to be from a script handed down from ‘above’.
Not being able to interact positively with workers, students and migrants in need of support is an obvious sign that she serves the wealthy and the Government and not the people in need. How many houses can one person own in the midst of a housing crisis, with people sleeping in garages and cars?
Parmar is not on the side of the students, the workers, or the exploited migrants. Her greed in amassing wealth and property is the reason she is involved in politics. How can people of Mt Roskill be expected to have confidence in a person so reluctant to be part of their community and so alien to their needs? It’s time to march against her corruption and demand real representation for people in Mount Roskill.
Join the Indian Students fighting for Justice today at the Stoddard Road shops in Mt Roskill at 12pm, marching to Parmar’s office.
