Indian Association Leaders Have Commended Museveni For Spearheading Uganda’s Transformation
Uganda is a land of Peace, Profit and Prosperity, the leader of the Indian Association in Uganda said.
The description by Mr Mohan Rao was made at State House Entebbe during a meeting between President Museveni and leaders of the Indian Association on staurday.
“As I often say, our stay in Uganda is characterized by 3Ps. Peace, Profit and Prosperity,” said Mr Rao. “Allow me to summarily correlate them as follows: The Peace that was ushered in and is being maintained by the NRM Government under your leadership has created a conducive environment for us to run and grow Profitable businesses.”
He added that, “These businesses through tax revenues, employment opportunities to Ugandans and production of quality products in goods and services translate into Prosperity for all of us as a nation.”
Mr Rao also commended President Museveni for overseeing the transformation of Uganda and “her people from darkness to light, from turmoil to peace, from lawlessness to democracy, from oppression to freedom, from sectarianism to inclusion and from recession to prosperity”.
On behalf of his association, Mr. Rao thanked President Museveni for supporting the return of Asians (and their properties) to Uganda following their expulsion in 1972 by Idi Amin.
He added, “The numerous tax and non-tax incentives have enabled us to start and grow many businesses across all sectors many of which are now focusing on adding value to Ugandan products and natural resources.”
Mr. Rao said, “The Peace and tranquility across the entire nation gives us confidence to reinvest our returns and attract other new investors and traders. This had also encouraged many of us to take on Ugandan citizenship and assure the nation that we are not here to milk the cow but to feed it as well.”
Mr. Rao said because President Museveni was the surest guarantor of the 3Ps, the Indian Association would support his candidature, wishing him landslide victory in the upcoming January elections.
