Hundreds flock Warner’s office
More people are seeking help to be relocated from crime-ridden areas says Chaguanas West MP Jack Warner. Warner, Minister of Works and Transport, who was speaking with reporters yesterday, was attending to approximately 500 people from across the country who packed his offices at Caroni Savannah Road, Chaguanas, seeking assistance. Warner said he had so far assisted four soldiers and their families to relocate from Laventille.
He said the soldiers were concerned about their safety and expressed their desire to move from the area. He said part of the Government’s policy was to allocate ten per cent of state-funded housing to members of the protective services. Warner said the cry for relocation came from several people in crime-ridden areas who came to his office in droves asking for houses in Central and South. Warner said people were also seeking food cards. He said staff from the Ministry of the People and Social Development had also come to assist people clamouring for help.
Boosting PTSC’s rural service
Warner also met with PTSC chairman Devant Maharaj earlier yesterday. He said he was working with Maharaj to fast-track the PTSC’s rural bus services and fine-tune other issues in the PTSC. He said the 50-odd workers at the Vehicle Maintenance Company of Trinidad and Tobago who were sent home earlier this month are to be absorbed by the PTSC.
