Former housing minister Dr. Roodal Moonilal is questioning whether public housing policy is being held up by a personal feud between two key players.
According to the former housing minister, the prime minister must explain whether the Finance Minister Colm Imbert is declining to give a government guarantees to NH International Caribbean Limited because of an ongoing private legal row involving the minister and the company’s chairman Emile Elias.
Member of Parliament for Oropouche East, Dr Roodal Moonilal says he will not be badgered, bullied and shut up by legal action being brought by the Government.
The former Housing Minister said in a statement that he believes this is an attempted by the PNM to divert attention away from an issue involving PNM member Harry Ragoonanan.
Dr Moonilal issued the following statement today:
