Vasant Bharath said he is saddened by Trinidad and Tobago’s state under the People’s National Movement but he said Kamla Persad-Bisseasr and the UNC offered no hope either.
Speaking at a meeting last night, Bharath said: “We meet at a time when T&T’s in international headlines for all the wrong reasons, because of a horrible migration crisis inflicted upon us by the incompetent, uncaring Rowley regime.”
“We’re here when more people are falling victims of gory crimes, more jobless workers have no food and flash floods affect households. … when corpses are falling out of a hearse and a newborn is dumped, but zessers are partying like nobody’s business – and children are being deported against the law.”
Bharath said “if that’s the state of the re-elected Government, the parliamentary Opposition offers no better hope.
He pointed to UNC’s failure in the parliament recently, as the party had foiled any effort at national interest in abstaining from supporting the Anti-Gang bill.
He said “the mishandling of this vital issue is an assault on common sense and a glaring example of the haphazard, dysfunctional state of T&T’s so-called alternative government. This is the result of absentee leadership.”
