The United National Congress celebrated being 26 years old with a sea of yellow at a UNC meeting at Rienzi Complex Couva yesterday. Speakers at the event wasted no time laying into the People’s National Movement’s leader Dr. Keith Rowley Housing Minister Dr. Roodal Moonilal reminded those in attendance of the shortcomings of Dr. Rowley and his administration.
Works and Infrastructure Minister Dr. Surujrattan Rambachan promised that not only would another phase of the Highway to Point Fortin be opened this week but that the Causeway to Chaguaramas would also be built. He also made mention of construction plans for the first part of the Highway from San Fernando to Mayaro.
Even though UNC founder Basdeo Panday refused an invitation to attend the celebrations, Mrs. Persad Bissessar still honored Mr. Panday.
