Subsidise fuel price increase: Gavoka

Subsidise fuel price increase: Gavoka Social Democratic Liberal Party Leader Viliame Gavoka is calling on the Government to subsidize the heavy increase in fuel prices and cushion the blow from reaching  ordinary Fijians, the majority of whom are already living below the poverty line.

While reacting to the increase in fuel prices, Gavoka said Government must seriously intervene and cushion the blow on the people with regards to the astronomical increases in fuel prices and external shocks that have cascaded from conflicts such as the Russian Invasion of the Ukraine.

“Our people are already suffering record levels of poverty unprecedented in our nation’s history.”

“We are stunned that Government continues to transfer the burden of the increased global prices and high freight costs directly to our suffering people who are feeling the pinch.”

“Tragic stories of school children fainting from lack of food, the increasing suicide rates and exploitation of child labor selling roti and juice to earn money for the family while others scavenging at rubbish dumps are a stark reality of the hopeless situation our poor majority are facing in Fiji today.”

“Currently poverty is estimated at over 50 per cent of our nation’s population while absolute poverty covers a huge section of that. With the increase in fuel price, more money will be deducted from the average weekly earnings of $41.17 when the increase in bus fares and taxi fares follows in the trend,” said Gavoka.
