Chairman of the United National Congress, Khadijah Ameen says the Prime Minister’s decision to purchase a new luxury vehicle at a time when his government says the country is in a recession, shows blatant disregard to citizens.
In an interview with News Power Now , Ms. Ameen said, to date the government is yet to announce its plans as it relates to economic recovery.
On Sunday, Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley noted that the decision to purchase the new luxury vehicle was made as a result of failed efforts to have the old vehicle’s interior, properly cleaned.
He confirmed that the new vehicle had come at a cost of $900,000.
Ms. Ameen said Dr. Rowley’s response to the situation is viewed as arrogant and noted that the money being spent on the vehicle, belongs to every citizen of this country.
