Laventille West MP, Fitzgerald Hinds says his recent removal from the Ministry of Works and Transport and appointment to the Public Utilities Ministry comes with the territory.
Minister Hinds will now oversee the affairs at the country’s utility companies, among them WASA and T&TEC. In an interview with
News Power Now this morning, Mr. Hinds said he knows he has the full support of the Prime Minister and his cabinet colleagues.
Questioned on the sentiment echoed by many that he has been demoted in this recent cabinet reshuffle, Minister Hinds said, that in
itself is an insult to the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
Minister Hinds told News Power Now that he is in the process of familiarizing himself with the permanent secretary. He said he is yet
to meet with the key board members at the often controversial Water and Sewerage Authority.
