Doomsday for Govt is here—Kublalsingh
“Doomsday for the Government is here,” warned Highway Re-Route leader Dr Wayne Kublalsingh who held a placard demonstration in front Construtora OAS camp at the construction site, Mon Desir intersection yesterday. Kublalsingh said the Government has dismissed Dr James Armstrong’s report and has begun construction of the Debe to Mon Desir leg of the San Fernando to Point Fortin highway, which is being strongly opposed by some residents.
Speaking at Delhi Road, Fyzabad, where tractors were parked and the land graded, Kublalsingh said work commenced three days ago. “They have absolutely dismissed us, but they have made a mistake. They have opened themselves up to litigation which we will pursue next week. They have opened themselves up to the voice of T&T and through diplomatic efforts the voice of the PNM, the voice of President for example, the voice of eminent people in society for example who attack them.”
Kublalsingh said the people will not allow tractors to work. “The Government has made a serious blunder here and this signals to us the end of them. This signals doom time for the Government. This Government shall be no more in a few months time.” Resident Rajoe Moonilal, 78, and Mohan Baney, 64, said they gave no one permission to grade down their land on which there are several fruit trees.
Moonilal said seven acres of her land was graded down without her permission and she received no compensation. Baney, who is sickly, is fearful because his boundary is next to Moonilal’s land. “The next person they going to attack is me and it have me disgusted. It have me uneasy since yesterday.” He said last week he was approached by representatives from Nidco and OAS contractors who told him he had to move. He said that no valuation was done on his two acres of land.
