The Fiji Finance Minister in India for talks

SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, April 29, 2008) – Fiji’s interim Finance and Sugar minister Mahendra Chaudhry is reportedly visiting a relative in India.

The Economic Times reports that Chaudhry "is on another visit to his ancestral village here".

Chaudhry, who is leading a three-member delegation of the Fijian government to hold talks with Indian leaders including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, today headed straight for a relative's home in HUDA Sector 4, the report stated.

Speaking to reporters while at Madhu Chaudhary's house, he said a draft charter for installation of a "non-racial" government in Fiji would be ready by August, followed by a public debate in October and a referendum in November- December.

Chaudhry, who hails from Bahu Jamalpur village, also told reporters that a 44-member national council of members of the interim government and representatives from civil society were in the process of preparing the charter.
