KINGSTON, Jamaica - Generation 2000 (G2K) the youth affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) today lashed out at the Minister of Youth and Culture Lisa Hanna claiming that she was not doing enough to reach out to youth in the country.

The group said that at a time when the nation marked Child Month, Hanna was found wanting where her portfolio responsibilities were concerned.

In a press conference at the JLP headquarters Friday morning G2K also criticised the ruling People National Party (PNP) on a number of issues.

G2K called on the Office of the Contractor (OCG) to update the country on whether the Cabinet has complied with its lawful requisition for information with respect to major projects.

The group also knocked the PNP on the resignation of Senator Stanley Redwood, President of the Senate.

"We cannot help but conclude that Mr Redwood had no faith in the direction of the wind, or the captaincy of those at the helm," said G2K which described Redwood as a “deserter”.
