Dr. Jagan's daughter blasts PPP leadership corruption

In April 2012, at a memorial for Dr Jagan, his daughter Ms Nadira Jagan-Brancier expressed her profound disappointment with the current PPP/C leadership.

Describing her parents as simple, humble people who fought for the working class, she said: “That is what they stood for, but the party has moved away.” She pointed out that her father did not have a big, ostentatious home like today’s party officials; she described her parents as modest, incorruptible people of integrity and high standards. Ms Jagan-Brancier said that these values do not exist in the PPP/C today
“My parents were probably the most incorruptible people you would ever find; their honesty and integrity were of very high standards, but unfortunately that does not exist or I don’t see it in many of the leaders of the party and the government.”
The General Secretary of the PPP, Mr Ramotar and his comrades use Cheddi’s name but Nadira Jagan said, “they fail to live up really and truly to what her parents had stood for.”

Ms  Jagan noted that her parents lived very simple lives: “The house is there and I really encourage people to use the opportunity to go in Bel Air and see the house where they lived… They lived a very simple life; they didn’t have big ostentatious homes that you see nowadays that government officials and party officials have…” she said in her address .
In Nadira Jagan’s words, “… I think the party has moved away − not the party but certain elements in the party − from these very, very important values that held the party together and what makes the PPP what it is, and so for me, when I look at some of the things happening, my parents may not be turning in their graves, but they must be churning up in the waters of the rivers [in which their ashes were sprinkled].”
