One Fijileaks source on the ground said many Indo-Fijians were also falsely told that Major Politini was involved in the overthrow of the Chaudhry government and the Politini's were close to the SDL government. Politini's mother worked for the deposed Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase in the 2006 election campaign. He runs the Highlands Scenic Eco-Tours tour company in Nadi. It seems the Highlanders did not vote for him. Politini had started his election campaign in Nadi well before Patel's name was endorsed by FFP. If one analyses the election results, one will notice how many FFP winning Indo-Fijian candidates are on top of the FFP list. It has also been brought to Fijileaks's attention that some Indo-Fijians like Patel did not promote 279 (Frank Bainimarama's candidacy number) in the Western Division, and in rural pocket meetings.
The Politini camp sources told Fijileaks: "In Ba, four Indo-Fijians candidates made it to Parliament for FijiFirst. Three in Nadi, and another three in Nausori. Also, Indo-Fijian candidates had a high number of votes. So much for equal votes and race free one Fiji."
Source close to the Politini camp also claim that Patel did not declare his full assets and might have cheated the tax department because of Fiji's double taxation arrangements with India and Australia. They allege that Patel inherited his wealth in Surat, India, and has properties in Canberra and in Fiji. One of the winning candidates Parveen Bala was reportedly given 10 rental cars by Sings Rental. The FFP Indo-Fijian candidates used hired vehicles to bring in voters.
Patel could not be reached for comments. RACE, claims FFP, is a thing of the PAST. We are all FIJIANS now. Tell that to Howard Politini who is CRYING FOUL over RACE CARD.
Chameleons and Cockroaches: Is Back Stabbing in Indo-Fijian DNA?: Just look at the President of Fiji's largest Hindu organization Vishva Hindu Parisad and business entrepreneur Jay Dayal. On the one hand he is publicly hailing FFP's WIN while privately was wishing for the party's general secretary Aiyaz Khaiyum (describing him as a 'Taliban RAT) to die a dogs death. The VHP's general secretary and newly appointed FFP parliamentarian Ashneel Sudhakar, while professing to be a devout HINDU and custodian of Hindu cultural and religious values in Fiji, is calling anti-coup opponents 'Cockroaches' who should be taken care of with 'Mortein' - the cockroach killer, and telling one to REST IN PEACE (RIP), not to mention posting porno materials on his Facebook and hailing Nazi Hitler salute!
"U ever communicated with Taliban? I would love to see that rat die a dogs death." President of VHP (Fiji) Jay Dayal's death wish for Khaiyum,
'The Taliban' of Fiji
While describing one of 'Taliban's' appointee Shaneen Ali, the Permanent Secretary for Industry and Trade, as GAY, the VHP's president in the next breath was publicly protesting about gay commercials on Rado Mirchi:
