This morning (Thursday 06 August), UNC Campaign Manager Rodney Charles spoke in front of the Government Campus Plaza, to talk about Keith Rowley’s history of failures during the last administration.
“During his time in government, Keith Rowley and his party presided over a series of catastrophic failures,” said Mr. Charles. “Failures that have cost millions upon millions of dollars – money which could have been spent healing the sick, helping the elderly and infirm, or educating young people.”
Voters already know about Keith Rowley’s $60 billion dollar vanity rail mega project, which the previous government spent half a billion dollars just to study. They also know about the utter failure of the Las Alturas housing project, which saw warnings about serious dangers utterly ignored.
“In total, Keith Rowley served some six and a half years as a Minister in the previous government,” said Mr. Charles. “He served as Minister of Planning and Development, which then became Minister of Housing and was then made Minister of Trade and Industry.”
Just two nights ago, Keith Rowley attempted to lay blame for the delays in building the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba at the feet of the current government. A project which his government oversaw as it went $700 million over budget and was delayed and delayed.
This is the real Keith Rowley. He has no plan and no vision. He attempts to shift blame for his government’s mistakes on to others. He has overseen the waste of millions upon millions of dollars on costly failures.
On 7th September, voters have an important choice to make. Keith Rowley has no plan and no vision to improve Trinidad and Tobago. He will continue to waste money on vanity projects and costly failures, ignoring the needs and concerns of voters.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has a plan and a vision to build on the achievements of the last five years to continue making real improvements in the lives of our people.
