Moonilal: I will not be badgered, bullied and shut up by "crooked" Government

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:

Hike in fuel prices will save government $550 million

Monday’s cut in the fuel subsidy will see government saving $550 million.

This was revealed by Finance Minister Colm Imbert following the T&T Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s annual post-budget analysis meeting with the business community.

With the price of super gasoline moving from $3.58 to $3.97 per litre and diesel increasing from $2.30 to $3.41per litre at the pumps with immediate effect, Imbert was asked how much money government expected to save having steadily removed the subsidy over continuous budgets.
