Cop Political Leader Prakash Ramadhar yesterday said that whatever decision made regarding the Anil Roberts matter, by government, is based on the Prime Minister’s prerogative. He reiterated that Minister Roberts received his ministerial portfolio on a COP ticket and as such, the decision made by the COP is consistent with all issues of serious allegations.
It was only yesterday that the public learnt that the Congress of the People had made the decision to suspend the sport minister from the party. Their action followed public outcry over a video that was posted to social media in which a man bearing the resemblance of Minister Roberts is seen handling the illegal narcotic, marijuana.
Mr. Ramadhar said the country’s interest is what is important.
He said the party has not called on the Prime Minister to take action at this time, however based on the COP’s policy, the suspension was deemed necessary.
