Former Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal is questioning whether the Housing Development Corporation has any plans of assisting those families it has evicted from units in a Housing Development in San Fernando.
The HDC evicted some 17 families, inclusive of young children, from the units which they occupied without permission. Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show this morning Dr Moonilal said while the HDC was within its right to evict the unlawful residents, the question of what assistance would be offered to these families, now looms.
Dr Moonilal is the Member of Parliament for Oropouche East.He said the residents who initially resided at Harmony Hall in Gasparillo, were evacuated by the HDC during his time in office, because of structural problems realized. He said the buildings had no planning approvals and had to be demolished.
