Ramdial: PNM's Divali celebrations an "insult"

Friday, October 28, 2016 - 16:45

Couva North MP Ramona Ramdial is calling the PMN’s Divali celebration an insult to the Hindu community.

In a release today, Ramdial says the PNM’s function was a Bollywood show with ministers making a spectacle of themselves. 

She deems it hypocritical of the PNM to be part and parcel of such a lavish, expensive function when temples, village councils, cultural organisations all over Trinidad and Tobago would have applied for funding to host real Divali celebrations and told by the government of reduced spending and unavailability of funds due to low energy prices.

Ramdial asks whether the money from PNM financiers should’ve been given to groups and organisations to host Divali celebrations within communities.
