'Shameful conduct' irks Koya

TOURISM Minister Faiyaz Koya says it is a "shameful conduct" for Opposition MPs to mislead Parliament through their "misleading" statements.

Mr Koya said this after claims made by Opposition MP Mosese Bulitavu that the Ministry for Industry and Trade had difficulties monitoring the Micro and Small Business Grant (MSBG).

"It is ironic how the Opposition talks about providing opportunities to Fijians,and empowering them and in the same breath they question the very initiative that is providing the much-needed opportunities to the grassroots communities," Mr Koya said.

He said the MSBG was an initiative of the FijiFirst Government, which was part of its manifesto and began in 2014.
