Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) political leader David Abdulah has criticised the Prime Minister for his public statements against the Director of Public Prosecutions, saying attacking people was a means of deflecting attention away from national issues.
But, he also said, the Opposition UNC engages in similar behaviour and was equally to blame.
Abdulah, speaking in a virtual media briefing, predicted the UNC would attack Rowley for all the comments he made in Barataria last week.
“We have this culture of the two parliamentary parties (PNM and UNC) attacking one another and none dealing with the fundamental problems of the day.”
Abdulah said these attacks often see the PNM and UNC “getting down into the gutter and while that is happening citizens are suffering.”
He said national institutions and society as a whole were falling apart while the PNM and UNC continued their political bickering.
