Opposition Senator, Fitzgerald Hinds, speaking in the Senate on Monday said the people of Trinidad and Tobago are suffering at the hands of the United National Congress, and what he termed its band of friends.
He said the government, since coming into power, has terminated some 5000 persons who he said “resemble the PNM” from positions within the public sector.
Vowing to go after those in government who commit this and other felonies, once the PNM returns to power, Senator Hinds said he understood that at this time, his words could not stop the ruling administration from doing as they so wished.
Separately, Senator Hinds told the government that the issue of urban renewal, which was brought up during recent crime talks, was a matter for concern. He noted that citizens must feel happy and comfortable in the environments in which they live, explaining that this was why the PNM had embarked on an urban renewal project in the East Port-of-Spain area.
