Last night at the PNM’s virtual meeting one could be forgiven for thinking that the PNM was campaigning for an upcoming General Election and that Keith Rowley was never the Prime Minister for the past five years.
What was on display last night on the PNM platform was gutter politics at its lowest. It was nothing short of the nastiest show of mudslinging and name-calling that is not reflective of our civilised society.
Keith Rowley, the sitting Prime Minister shamelessly sought to blame the UNC and Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar once again for all the failings of his own Government.
Our response is simple – Stop campaigning and get to work, Mr Prime Minister. While Keith Rowley is more concerned with labelling a British Member of Parliament as a UNC mouthpiece, people are suffering. The same citizens who took their plight to that British MP, simply wanting to return home, Rowley refused to show a shred of concern for them.
Thousands here in T&T are without food. Thousands are without jobs. And thousands of our children have no laptops or any device to participate in online learning. The Rowley regime has proven once again that they are not fit to run a mini-mart much less the nation as they seem to be more concerned with insults, innuendo
and awarding contracts to friends and financiers, than with the public’s business.
We call on the Prime Minister to stop playing politics. The elections are over and we have moved on with the business of the nation.
In fact, right now, the UNC is performing the duties of the government in attending to the needs of the people.
The people of Trinidad and Tobago don’t want to hear ranting and raving; they want solutions to their pressing problems. Get to work Prime Minister.
