Govt Minister says PSA President is a “damn liar”

Public Utilities Minister Marvin Gonzales says PSA leader Leroy Baptiste is a liar.

His comments come amid an expected showdown between the union and the Government following plans to restructure the company and send home 213 managers, half of the current managerial complement of 426 managers.

PSA President Leroy Baptiste has reportedly accused the Government of attempting to sabotage WASA and starve it of funds in a bid to ensure that it fails.

But speaking on Power 102 Digital’s Power Breakfast Show, Minister Gonzales labelled him a liar as he noted that the state organization had received more than 20 billion dollars in the last decade.

He accused the PSA leader of putting on a show for the public.

Minister Gonzales defended the need for the restructuring programme as he lamented the lack of efficiency at the organization.
