Kvezereli at risk of losing household2011-03-25 19:52
After the losing speech of the Georgian Prime Minister Nika Gilauri in parliament the government started a "postflight analysis". Now it is Minister of Agriculture Bakur Kvezereli who found himself at the oppositional fractions' gunpoint. Leader of the Christian-Democrats Giorgy Targamadze asked the official to name at least three reasons why he should hold such high post. The head of the Ministry of Agriculture never gave a clear answer. It goes without saying that the minister has got huge plans: blackberry, almonds, sheep and olives. The only thing is that the Georgian officials are uncommonly bad at achieving the set tasks.
There came an oppressive pause after the debates between the Christian-Democratic Movement and Bakur Kvezereli in parliament. The head of Ministry of Agriculture failed to satisfy the oppositionists with his answers to their tricky questions. He was asked to name the reasons why he should hold office in the Cabinet. Three, at least. But it turned out to be too much for the minister: he desperately tried to find words to show his activity to advantage and stated that the administration had realized "more than one project" with his personal involvement.
Information on the precise number of his achievements remained secret. Perhaps, there were two or three projects but one can hardly remember there outcome. Kvezereli was too much tired of his work to remember the results. His eyes, just like the eyes of other members of the Georgian "mobile" government, constantly gaze into a better tomorrow. Ministry of Agriculture is cherishing global plans: very soon, there will be a rich crop of blackberries, almonds and olives in local farms; they will be enough both for consumption in Georgia and export to Europe at favourable prices. To the joy of his fellow countrymen who have to keep a fast, the minister promises to increase the cattle stock. He says they are going to look for the ways of driving sheep and is obviously going to make swine bring forth the young at an accelerated pace.
One can only envy the farmer's optimism: while listening to his bright and tempting stories about the future success, the audience involuntarily forgot that the corn seeds are just being handed out to farmers and the blackberry seedlings have not even been brought from America yet. Kvezereli does not seem to care whether almonds and olive trees are going to naturalize in Sakartvelo. Indeed, since democracy is blooming in the Georgian land, olives will somehow grow here.
