Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has told Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh that she will not, be held to ransom on his call for her to halt construction on the Debe to Mon Desir section of the Point Fortin Highway.
In a letter Mrs Persad-Bissessar said she was compelled to write him on the futility of his action even as the case he filed is before the Courts for adjudication.
She called on Dr. Kublalsingh to recognize that as Prime Minister, she has a duty to consider the positive effects the highway’s extension will on the people who use it.
Mrs. Persad-Bissessar pointed to the long lines of traffic people face on a daily basis in the area.
Dr. Kublalsingh was told to let the courts decided on the matter. She said having initiated legal proceedings he must abide by the law and let due process to take its course.
