The Congress of the People Political Leader is voicing support for the Prime Minister’s decision not to revoke the appointment of Sport Minister, Anil Roberts.
There is controversy surrounding the Minister, following the circulation of a video on social media.
In it, a man bearing a striking resemblance to Minister Roberts is seen in the company of women engaging in illegal activity.
Minister Roberts has said there are attempts by the Opposition People’s National Movement to tarnish his character.
C.O.P. Leader, Prakash Ramadhar, in an interview with the media said he is backing the position of Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar not to fire Minister Roberts based on the facts that she has on the issue.
However, he remained firm on the decision of the C.O.P. to suspend and not expel Mr. Roberts from the party, because he did not cooperate with the executive council.
