Former PNM Councillor, Isha Wells, a native of the Laventille community says the area and its people require mental transformation.
Her comments come one day after she questioned the Prime Minister at the state TV organized Leader’s exchange. Among the questions posed by Wells to Mrs. Persad Bissessar, was what would be done for persons considered squatters in the area.
Speaking in a televised interview this morning, Wells said much of what is experienced by Laventillians, is not self- inflicted.
She however said the nation as a whole has played a part in the discrimination meted out to people of depressed communities.
