Minister in the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure Stacy Roopnarine is of the view that the issue of the Point Fortin Highway has now become an emotional one because of the hunger strike by Environmentalist Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh.
However, she is saying that there are bigger issues and the government cannot be held to ransom.
She added that Dr. Kublalsingh’s demand to stop the highway is not possible.
Ms. Roopnarine also stated that Dr. Kublalsingh’s suggestions for alternative routes do not seem feasible.
She added that there are a lot of positives with the Highway being built but it is crowded by misinformation in the public domain.
