Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal said yesterday that neither former prime minister Patrick Manning nor the Peoples Partnership had anything to do with the work stoppage at the Vieux Fort Housing Development project. The former housing minister was responding to claims by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley that the project was stopped after Manning reported that $10 million was missing from the Cleaver Heights Project.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley challenged Opposition MP Dr Roodal Moonilal to "meet him outside on the pavement" during today's sitting of the Parliament, after he clearly heard wrongly, what Dr Moonilal had asked him.
Dr Moonilal was one of many Opposition members asking questions about state funding of the recovery of Communications Minister Maxie Cuffie, during a sitting of the Lower House.
Dr Moonilal asked: "Could the prime minister indicate whether it's the intention of the party he leads to help Minister Cuffie rather than the taxpayers?"
