Statement from the United National Congress on social media calls for protest action at the Divali Nagar
The United National Congress is aware of messages being circulated on various social media platforms encouraging certain protest actions at Divali Nagar tomorrow. The Party wishes to advise that this has not originated from the National Executive of the UNC or its leadership and it is not a coordinated action by the Party.
The Political Leader of the UNC Mrs Kamla Persad Bissessar whilst understanding the frustration of the citizenry does not support nor condone such action and urges that we take the high road and always make our voices be heard in a dignified and productive manner.
The Divali Nagar forms an important part of a religious celebration and should be used as time for fellowship and reflection. We urge everyone attending to think about how we can work together to restore light and peace to Trinidad and Tobago.
