STOP wasting taxpayers' money.
A Labasa businessman, Vishal Narayan, made the comment after plans to relocate the Labasa bus stand and market was made known at the National Budget Forum yesterday.
The question on whether the Labasa market and bus stand would be relocated was raised at the forum.
Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea told the forum that there have been plans to relocate Labasa market to Subrail Park.
He said the bus stand would also be relocated.
He told the forum that the plans was with the Ministry of Local Government that's handling the projects. But Mr Narayan told the forum that relocating the two premises would be a total waste of taxpayers' money.
"They have just built the double-storey at the market which cost about $350,000 and renovated the market," he said.
"The bus stand has just been done up with cement floors. Are any of these people thinking?
"They need to reconsider. Stop wasting taxpayers' money."
The Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the Minister for Local Government was handling the project.
