General Secretary of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha (SDMS), Sat Maharaj, made some controversial comments yesterday during an interview.
He labelled the deceased Former Prime Minister a ‘racist’.
In making his comments, Maharaj said he and several members of the public came to that conclusion based on a series of discriminatory practices Manning perpetuated against Indians in T&T while he served as PM.
In a response General Secretary of the People’s national Movement Ashton Ford said that the PNM had no intention concerning itself with the comments.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show on Power 102.1 fm this morning, he stated that based on historical evidence it was impossible to describe any PNM Prime Minister as racist.
