...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.
