Sugar workers, cane farmers call on Panday, Ramesh to save UNC

Sunday, December 8, 2013

Former sugar workers and cane farmers have made a clarion call to founder and former leader of the United National Congress (UNC) Basdeo Panday and former attorney general Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj to save the party. This will be one of several issues Maharaj and Panday are expected to discuss when the group known as UNC supporters meet today at the Rienzi Complex, Couva, at 2 pm. Another matter Maharaj and Panday are expected to address is the plight and concerns of former sugar workers and cane farmers.



The Sunday Guardian was told that the former sugar workers and cane farmers recently approached Maharaj and Panday, asking them to try and help revive the original UNC because the party was going down. Maharaj and Panday are expected to respond to the members’ call today. Other listed to speak at the meeting are Nirvan Maharaj, president general of the All Trinidad General Workers Trade Union, Thomas Sotillio, secretary of the former Cane Farmers’ Association, and Mickela Panday.
