...Mom slams ‘Express’ as ‘trash newspaper’

The mother of fired minister of the People and Social Development Dr Glenn Ram­a­dhar­singh said she had nothing to say to the media about the decision by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to revoke her son’s appointment.

Chandra Ramadharsingh is vice-chairman of the Sipa­ria Regional Corporation and councillor for the Rousillac/Otaheite district.

The Express contacted Ra­madharsingh at her Rousillac home yesterday.

Asked about her feelings on Persad-Bissessar’s decision, Ramadharsingh said, “What do you want me to say to this trash newspaper? I have nothing to say. Don’t call because I have no response to give this newspaper.”

Persad-Bissessar’s announcement came 11 days after the Express exclusively reported police were investigating a report of disorderly behaviour by Ramadhar­singh on board a domestic flight from Tobago to Trinidad on March 16.

The Prime Minister summoned Ramadharsingh to a meeting at her private residence in Phillipine on Tuesday.

Following the three-hour-long meeting, Persad-Bissessar announced she had ad­-

vised President Anthony Car­-

mona to revoke the appointment of the Minister of the People.
