AFC was opposed to the LCDS from day one

The AFC is trying desperately to dispel public opinion that its move, along with the APNU, to reduce sums budgeted for several programmes under the LCDS to $1 will not adversely affect it. This futile attempt to regain lost political ground flies in the face of all the evidence that is in the public domain. This party has always been opposed to the LCDS and demonstrated this in Parliament when the strategy was tabled by the then Agriculture Minister, Robert Persaud and it was further highlighted in a letter in March of 2011, signed by Khemraj Ramjattan, Tarron Khemraj and others(see attached) which urged the Norwegian Environment and International Development Minister to withhold funds from the GRIF
