Lee Sing gets Bharath’s support
Food Production Minister Vasant Bharath says Port-of-Spain mayor Louis Lee Sing has the authority to construct a soft Mondo track at the Queen’s Park Savannah if he so desires. Bharath was speaking to reporters after attending the Tableland Pineapple Farmers’ Association fruit fair, held at the Nu Image Simplex Complex, New Grant, yesterday.
Asked whether he was in support of the track, Bharath said yes. “I haven’t done the research but from what I gather, even though I have not done any extensive investigation, Mayor Lee Sing has the authority to do this,” the minister said. Bharath said the project to upgrade the facilities at the savannah was commendable.
“We must also remember that it is not just the people from the environs who use it,” he said. “There is such a large grouping of people from all over the country who work in Port-of-Spain and use the savannah. “I think a Mondo track is a good project, but whether it will come to fruition or not is left to be seen.”
Lee Sing called on private and business communities to fund the project as the corporation did not have enough money to do it. He said he had been listening to the complaints of senior citizens who use the concrete walkway. He said they complained that the concrete caused them pain in their feet, hips and joints.
