Alleyne: ILP in an illegal structure
UNC St Joseph candidate Ian Alleyne has said the ILP Chaguanas head office building has no Town and Country Planning approval and is an illegal structure. Speaking at PP’s San Juan meeting on Wednesday night, Alleyne read from documents, including letters from the Chaguanas Borough Corporation’s lawyer and Town and Country Planning Division on the issue. He cited a report from the borough’s CEO on an illegal building on Mulchan Seuchan Road, where the office is located, and read from various other documents noting notices were sent on the issue earlier this year, including a pre-action protocol letter in March from the corporation’s attorney.
Alleyne added: “I call on the Town and Country Planning Division and Local Government Minister to throw them out. The building is illegal. Why are they still in it?” Saying the Town and Country Division would be after the ILP, Alleyne said ILP would be “out in the street.” Alleyne whose musical accompaniment was the tune Hit the Road, Jack, added: “I’m not afraid of Jack Warner or Keith Rowley.”
Yesterday, ILP deputy leader Lyndira Oudit referred queries on the building to the leader. ILP chairman Robin Montano said: “Does Mr Browne, sorry, Alleyne, really think this (building issue) is true and people are concerned about this? Get a life.” At the PP’s San Juan meeting, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar paid tribute to UNC founder Basdeo Panday and others who formed the UNC, which marked its 25th anniversary on Wednesday.
