Couva North MP Ravi Ratiram has condemned the statement issued by the Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley on his facebook page, where he accuses the Leader of the Opposition, Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar, of appealing for a 1990-style insurrection to be the response of our citizens, who are undergoing the hardships that many are currently experiencing.
Ratiram said “I wish to tell the Prime Minister to stop attempting to mislead the population and fool the citizenry, once again.
“As the individual who holds one of the highest office in the land, the Prime Minister should stop acting and speaking in such an irresponsible manner, broadcasting misinformation and misrepresenting statements made by the Leader of the Opposition.”
Ratiram added ” have reviewed the statement by the Leader of the Opposition, and at no time did she appeal to our citizens to respond to the hardships they are currently experiencing in a manner similar to the 1990 insurrection. Instead the Leader of the Opposition has pointed out the hardships, difficulties and sufferings that he and his failed government have imposed onto the citizens and the level of frustration our people have to endure.”
He said “The Leader of the Opposition has been most responsible to put forward a vaccination rollout plan, and the Prime Minister should focus his efforts on this or similar initiatives and desist from the rant of a mad man to distract our population from the countless missteps and mistakes he and his government have been making with the lives of our citizens.”
