Mayaro  MP Rushton Paray

Mayaro  MP Rushton Paray says he fully understands why some of his constituents staged a roadblock yesterday.

Residents of Agostini Village protested over the poor quality of the roads as well as the high number of taxes contained in the 2018 Budget.

Speaking on CNC 3’s Morning Brew, Mr. Paray says even though he fully understands the residents’ grievances, he does not support illegal protests, adding that it was not sanctioned by the Opposition.
