Residents of Bartica have given the Government up to today to make an official decision on whether or not the Four Mile Bartica-Potaro Road will be fixed before the end of this year.One resident told this newspaper,[url=http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticonline.us@#$%&/]Cheap Jerseys NFL China[/url], via the telephone yesterday, that if no official word comes from the Administration today on when the road will be rehabilitated, Barticians will resort to their protest action once again.The residents vowed to dig more ditches in the road and to continue with the protest,[url=http://www.salecheapjerseys.us@#$%&/]NFL Cheap Jerseys China[/url], so that their voices can be heard and the road can be fixed.They also plan to block vehicles from passing in and out of the area.Villagers are adamant that if this is not done, the Government will not pay attention to the problem.Last Thursday night, residents took to the streets to protest the disastrous state of the road, which they said have been in that condition for over five years.They dug ditches in the road and burnt tyres, which, as a result,[url=http://www.wholesalesportsjerseys.us@#$%&/]Wholesale Authentic Jerseys[/url], prevented any flow of vehicular traffic in and out of the area.Meanwhile, in an invited comment yesterday, Regional Chairman of Bartica,[url=http://www.wholesalenfljerseyssale.us@#$%&/]Cheap NFL Jerseys[/url], Mr. Holbert Knights, said that Government has not made any contact with him to enquire about the state of the road, or even to say when or if it will be fixed.Mr. Knights acknowledged the fact that the PPP congress is in progress, but expressed his frustration that the Ministry of Public Works did not even call to give an indication on when or if the road will be rehabilitated.Mr. Knights noted that he received a call from the Office of the Prime Minister last Thursday, during which he was informed that Prime Minister Samuel Hinds would call him for an update on the situation; but, according to the Regional Chairman,[url=http://www.salecheapjerseys.us@#$%&/]NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap[/url], to date, this has not happened.?I don?t understand what the difficulty is in informing us on the decision that they have taken on the road. Only when something happens then the Government is ready to move,? Knights said.Kaieteur News understands that the Government had put out a tender bid for the rehabilitation of the road to the tune of $20 million. That tender came to a close in May of this year, but, to date, the contract has not been awarded.This newspaper was informed that the Central Tender Board is responsible for sending a recommendation to Cabinet to get its no objection for the contract,[url=http://www.salecheapjerseys.us@#$%&/]NFL Jerseys China Wholesale[/url], but that has not been done.It is believed that this is the bugbear that seems to be delaying the process.The Regional Chairman added that he has written to the Minister of Public Works many times on the issue, but, to date, has received no response.Meanwhile,[url=http://www.wholesalesportsjerseys.us@#$%&/]Jerseys From China[/url], during the protest action last Thursday, a number of Joint Services ranks turned up at the scene and attempted to prevent the residents from damaging the road further.However, one resident has expressed his disgust with the way the Joint Services dealt with the situation.The resident noted that the ranks arrived at the scene and cranked up their guns.?It?s like they came to kill criminals,? the resident said.He pointed out that the words used by the ranks were totally inappropriate.According to the villager, one of the ranks said, ?Leh we give them a Buxton style.?The resident stated that another rank jumped out from the patrol and said, ?I would shoot up everybody here on the road.?Kaieteur News also understands that a resident was gun-butted in his chest by one of the ranks.According to reports, the man was standing alongside the road when the Joint Services rank came up to him and hit him in the chest with his gun.The prominent resident from the Bartica community told this newspaper that he cannot believe that these are the ranks that are stationed at the Bartica Police Station, who are supposed to protect them from another massacre, one of which took place there only a few months ago.Kaieteur News understands that the current state of the road results in damages to vehicles which traverse it on a daily basis.  In cases of emergency, it was noted, drivers would refuse to go in the area for fear that their vehicles would be damaged. This would then result in residents having to find $10,000 to pay the cars or buses to take them to that area.
