Mishiko to starve the country with corn2011-05-16 13:57
Saakashvili keeps acquainting the country with his far-out ideas. Surprisingly, the poor and backward Georgia can become Europe's economic growth leader as well as the regional energy, tourism, infrastructure and God-knows-what-else center. The volume of agricultural production must grow threefold or fivefold - the president has not decided yet. In the meantime, the opposition is trying to bring the dreaming leader back to earth: the country's agriculture is going to ruin...
Georgia's corn future is at risk! The seed time is almost up, and fields remain unploughed and unsown, The New Rights beat the alarm. It's all the fault of the government that carried out a large-scale advertising campaign of imported corn seeds last year promising that farmers would be given seeds as well as foreign machinery and chemicals - all of them indispensible for the undertaking. The government has lied - as usual.
"Only one promise out of the three has been fulfilled: the ministry was particularly active disseminating corn seeds. As for the rest - nothing has been done at all", - Georgi Asatiani, chair of the New Rights states. The results are pitiful: summer is near at hand. Farmers have useless seeds and fallow fields full of weed plants. It's clear even to a fool that Sakartvelo will have a hard harvesting time this year.
Yet, this fact seems entirely inconceivable to the country's president. Mikheil Saakashvili, Georgia's number one dreamer, stated at Mercury 2011, a national business award ceremony, that the volume of Georgian agricultural produce will grow threefold - no, fivefold! The president was strangely modest. He could say tenfold after all. Or twentyfold. Or fiftyfold - these figures are equally fantastic now that Georgia's agriculture is falling to pieces.
The president admits that the agriculture is "extremely backward". Yet, he says, "progress must not be stopped". A natural question would be whether Mishiko knows the difference between progress and regress. Nota bene for the president: when something rolls back and goes to ruin this is not progress. It's like a self-killer that jumps off a skyscraper: it's wrong to call it a flight in an exalted voice. The man is simply falling down.
