Environmentalist, Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh has started his second hunger strike outside of the Prime Minister’s St. Clair Office.
The Highway Re-route Movement has been calling on the state to stop the Debe to Mon Desir section of the Golconda to Point Fortin Highway.
The group has repeatedly urged the government to adhere to the recommendations of the report done by an independent committee, which was chaired by Dr. James Armstrong.
In an interview on Tuesday, Dr. Kublalsingh said he has to take action on this issue. He also noted that he was yet to receive an official response from the Prime Minister on the matter.
Dr. Kublalsingh said his action must not be viewed as an attack against the government.
