Rambally: Gov’t out of touch with reality

Chaguanas West MP Dinesh Rambally has told the Government it is out of touch with reality.

He made the comment in light of what’s been seen as several insensitive comments from MPs and Cabinet members towards the population amidst public backlash to measures in the recently read 2023 Budget.

During his contribution to the Budget debate in Parliament on Monday, Rambally accused the Government of using the statements to bully the population into submission.

He said the Budget would increase pressure on the poor, vulnerable and middle class.

While chambers of commerce had a mainly favourable review of the Budget since its reading, Rambally said these were not the entities the Government needed to look after.
