Fiji’s military says deposed Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase and Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry are hypocrites who are only working together now because they see Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama as a threat to their political survival.

“It is quite interesting to see them now portraying a friendship never before seen, agreeing to disagree with the PM,” Republic of Fiji Military Forces Land Force Commander Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga told FijiLive.

“Anyone worth his salt can look through the masks and see that they both see the PM and his policies - which are far better than any they can design in their lifetime - to be a threat to their political survival and as such they are joining hands. Isn’t that hypocritical?” he asked.

Colonel Tikoitoga said the two are seasoned politicians who have lost sight of what Fiji's common people aspire to.

He said the two have, in their time as political leaders, continually played race against each other for their own political agendas.

He said both of them were given chances to be different under the aspirations of Bainimarama but they decided to maintain racial politics.

By doing so, he said the duo has limited the growth of Fiji to its full potential.

Chaudhry declined to comment when contacted.
