“It is unbelievable for officials of government to leak classified documents to the public. This is wickedness to a job that put bread on your table to be undermined by them. It is time that we bring on board partisans who love the president, who support the Pro Poor Agenda for Development than to have people who are wishing to see the downfall of the government,” he blasts.

Most importantly, our supporters who stood with us during our difficult days in the struggle must continue to be empowered. We can no longer sugarcoat this reality. The moral demands to empower our people are a fierce urgency that remains our first line of defense as we serve our country”, Chairman Morlu asserts.
