I never threatened PNMites—Moonilal
Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal says he never threatened people who voted for the People’s National Movement in last week’s local government elections. Rowley told a PNM meeting in Mt Hope on Saturday Moonilal said state enterprises would be used to provide assistance to the population. Rowley was implying that the Government would deprive the PNM-controlled corporations of resources. Moonilal denied that in an e-mail response sent to the T&T Guardian yesterday. “I never said that state agencies will do work of the corporations,” Moonilal said.
He added he was responding to questions from a reporter, who asked: “What do I expect from the PNM corporations?” Moonilal said his response was: “Poor representation.” He said he was then asked: “Where does that leave the people?” and his response was: “The Government will assist all citizens regardless of locality, through various state agencies.” Moonilal in his e-mail said: “Rowley no doubt remembered the method of PNM discrimination against UNC-controlled corporations so he declares from the mountaintop: ‘Take them to court.’ The PNM can never change.”
