‘Dedicated, humble’ councillor laid to rest
The Ministry of Local Government expressed sympathy to the grieving family of councillor Santam Ramjit who died at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, last Friday. In a press release the ministry said Ramjit died in the early hours of the morning. Ramjit was assigned to the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation and served as the councillor for the Aranguez/Warner Village since 2003.
The press release said Minister of Local Government Surujrattan Rambachan recognised the “sterling contribution” that Ramjit had made to the development of his constituency. Rambachan said he recently spoke to Ramjit concerning issues of flooding and unemployment that were affecting his constituents.
He said: “Ramjit represented that group of councillors who worked very closely with his constituents and who often internalised their problems.” In the press release Rambachan extended condolences to the San Juan/Laventille Corporation.
A similar statement from the chairman of the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation alderman Nafeesa Mohammed described Ramjit as “a dedicated and humble servant of the people who did his best to represent the burgesses in his area.” Mohammed also described him as a team player who had great experience in politics and governance. Ramjit’s funeral took place yesterday on what would have been his fifty-seventh birthday.
