People's National Party (PNP) supporters in East Rural St Andrew have criticised Juliet Holness, the member of parliament, for reportedly placing her name on back-to-school items donated to children going back to school tomorrow.

According to comrades, schoolbags have surfaced on social media with a "JAH" logo, the initials for Juliet Ann-Marie Holness.

PNP vice presidential contender, Dr Angela Brown Burke, was the first to lash out at Holness at the Habour View Primary School, arguing she was taking "liberty of poor people pickney".

Karl Blake, councillor for the Greenwich Town division in the St Andrew South West constituency, also took on Holness, declaring that Joan Gordon Webley would have never gone "so low".

Referring to Gordon Webly, Blake said, she would give "and nobody would know".

"From she come, she has been opening door and a kick she start kick down the doors now," he said.

Oliver Clue, the councillor for the Harbour View division in the constituency, also added his rebuke.

"I want to say to our friends and our neighbours, return the bags dem because it is total disrespect to our children," Clue remarked.
