Tulsa Trace and environs flooded AGAIN courtesy of Rohan Sinanan, says MP for Oropouche West Davendranath Tancoo. With heavy rains for the past three days, the river at Tulsa Trace picnic site is being breached. This is the very same site where Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan had stated 5 weeks ago that a pump was to be installed. That pump he said was in the country since mid-September. The banks of the Oropouche River that were breached in September and hastily “patched” by private citizens using material to fill the breach, were NEVER repaired by the Contractor or the Ministry of Works and Transport.
With no pump to push the water at the sluice gates, this huge volume of water is now flowing back into the Blackwater Channel in a westerly direction (opposite to natural flow) affecting Ragoonanan Road, Suchit Trace, Raju Trace, Katwaroo Trace, Ramdharry Trace, Mahadeo Trace, Mohess Road, Laltoo Trace and thousands of people.
Rohan Sinanan, this is because of YOU. Are you waiting until there is a loss of LIFE? Why has the pump not been installed after you sat on it for 5 weeks asked MP Tancoo.
Tancoo says that “I look forward to your press conference and hope it’s not to talk about my clothes again. This is a serious issue and your immature political commentary may be funny to you but it is the lives of taxpayers being affected. I look forward to hearing solutions instead of the same litany of excuses to justify why you have FAILED taxpayers in Penal, Woodland, Pluck Road, San Francique, Siparia and Fyzabad all of whom are affected by your refusal to do your job. I look forward to your press conference and hope it’s not to hear you threaten citizens with Police action for pointing out your geographic discrimination but claim “discretion” is used for other areas. I look forward to your press conference and hope it’s not more of the same reciting how many feet of a river bank you cleared or blaming people for your incompetence. I look forward and hope it’s not to hear about not having enough funding while $600 million is wasted in corruption and mismanagement by NGC under PNM and not a soul held accountable!”
COME GOOD ROHAN SINANAN! WE ARE FED UP OF YOUR EXCUSES!
