The Pierre Road Ramleela Committee is commenced that its Ramleela Celebrations which starts on Friday 14th October and ends Monday 24th October, will be in darkness. The Committee had requested that the lights at the Pierre Road ground remain lighting until 11:00 P.M. for the duration of the celebration; but they were informed by Chaguanas Mayor Gopaul Boodhan that T&TEC has turned down the request.
This is the largest Ramleela celebrations in Trinidad and people come from all parts of the country to witness these celebrations and T&TEC has refused to accommodate this cultural event, why is it the lights cannot be left on until 11:00 P.M. just for 10 days?
I am very disappointed with the response from T&TEC thus far! And I am calling on all relevant authorities to intervene in this matter.
