Couva North Member of Parliament, Ramona Ramdial expressed her anger and disbelief at Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley’s statements at the opening of PNM’s central regional office in Chaguanas East, where he asked Central Trinidad to give the PNM a chance in the upcoming local government elections and in general elections 2020.
Ramdial in reference to the Prime Minister’s statements said, “The people of Central have seen him and his party for who and what they really are and will NOT be giving the PNM a chance in Central!”
She added, “How can Central Trinidad give Prime Minister Keith Rowley and the PNM a chance when only a couple of weeks ago he and his government showed a lack of care and compassion when they failed to visit the families of the seven dead fishermen of Orange Valley?”
“To further add insult to injury we had a junior acting Minister of National Security, Minister Hinds saying twice on national television that they would visit ONLY if a silent request was made from the families. This was an all-time low for the PNM led government during one of T&T darkest weeks,” said Ramdial.
Ramdial noted, “the Prime Minister and his uncaring Ministers came to central to open an office, a barrage of ministers visited former Minister McDonald when she was charged for corruption, bringing food and words and comfort last week but up to this day there have been no visits from the Prime Minister, Ministers or government officials to the people of Orange Valley.”
“I want the people of Trinidad & Tobago to wake up and not be fooled by the Prime Minister’s hypocritical and uncaring statements. He has clearly shown through his words and actions that he is NOT a Prime Minister for all the people of Trinidad & Tobago.” Ramdial concluded.
