The following re excerpts of a speech delivered by the Leader of the National Federation Party Professor Biman Prasad at the NFP Convention at Nadi on Saturday 29th March 2014. I do not underestimate what lies ahead of us. With much humility, a clear understanding about the scale of responsibility and excitement, I have accepted the National Federation Party’s Leadership. The weight of history, I am aware is heavy. Expectations are large. I have accepted a post previously held by some of the finest political leaders in our country, Mr Jai Ram Reddy, Mr. Harish Sharma, the formidable late Mr A D Patel and Late Mr. S.M Koya, people from whom I and so many others draw so much inspiration.
