Dial quits COP’s Green Policy Committee
Embattled Congress of the People (COP) member Nalini Dial has resigned from the party’s Green Policy Committee. Dial submitted her resignation to the party’s general secretary Nirad Tewarie yesterday. In her letter, she said she regretted to advise of her immediate resignation from the committee, which deals with environmental matters. She said her action stemmed from the strongly worded condemnation of a Facebook post that she published last week. That post was critical of San Fernando mayor Marlene Coudray, and said the sins of parents fall on their children.
Dial said this while Coudray was mourning the loss of her daughter, Michelle Coudray-Greaves, whose body was found in a canefield in Jamaica after she was reported missing. Dial said it would be “hypocritical and false” for her to remain on the committee because she was appointed for her animal activism work. Dial said: “What is more troubling is that some in this party, including the leader himself, tend to accept it (my activism) conveniently.” Dial said an activist doesn’t perform his or her role conveniently but since this seemed to present a problem to members she was now removing herself from the committee.
