Hinds double dares PP take him to ‘Privileges’
A new PNM Government will go after People’s Partnership members once they leave a “footprint” or electronic print in questionable issues, PNM Senator Fitzgerald Hinds declared on Tuesday. Speaking in Tuesday’s budget debate in the Senate, Hinds stated what the PNM would do “when we return to government.” Hinds reiterated his call for a forensic audit of alleged bid rigging concerning the Education Facilities Company. Hinds said he had called for the probe before but the Government was “blocking it.”
Querying the alleged “participation” of SIS Ltd in the issue, Hinds challenged the Government to take him before the Privileges Committee on his allegation that the Prime Minister had spoken about her house and the SIS company during the January THA election campaign. Hind said moving the National Security portfolio from former minister Emmanuel George was “quite right but would not help.”
Speaking about attention for crime hot spots, Hinds said the head of a man which was recently discovered, placed on Nelson Street, Port-of-Spain had been cut off while the man was still alive. Hinds also called on the PP to stop going around to give out bags to children and Jack Warner to not “go around pandering to people in certain circumstances offering cheap gifts.” He later said Warner was the PP and Warner had “made and nurtured” the coalition. “They wrap up like snake,” he added of the PP and Warner.
Hinds, who told the PP their “central grandfathers” still bad talked the PNM, reiterated and supported statements by PNM leader Keith Rowley and Marlene McDonald. Hinds also said Energy Minister Kevin Ramnarine was a “Johnny Come Lately” and was “fast and loose” with statements on the energy sector.
