Navara says the piece of land located at the Suva Botanical garden is the traditional burial ground of their forefathers and they don’t want any development to take place there.

He says they are hoping the government will reconsider their plans of giving the land away to the Indian government to build their embassy.

“But we would rather discuss like this for them to consider, for the last 100 plus years the government, the city council has not anything to us, so for them to take this again from us, it’s a slap in the face.”
