Naitasiri vocal on land plan

Thursday, February 28,

MEMBERS of one of the province of Naitsiri have been vocal about the land dereservation plan floated by Dr Krishnamurti.

A member who preferred to remain anonymous said there were questions raised by members who came in numbers to meet at the Tamavua Village community hall yesterday.

"There were questions raised and what the dereservation meant for those owning land," the source said.

The source said the landowners were concerned about their land with the latest announcement. When The Fiji Times visited the village yesterday, they were not allowed to sit in the meeting.

Present at the meeting was Naitasiri chief Ratu Inoke Takiveikata.

Last week, the province of Cakaudrove warned interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry to back off and not touch land issues.

Speaking on behalf of the Tui Cakau Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu and the people of Cakaudrove, Epeli Matata said Mr Chaudhry and the interim regime should not dereserve native land.
