Former justice minister Herbert Volney is now blaming the anti-Section 34 march for his dismissal.
Though Volney said he has since "forgiven the Prime Minister" for firing him last month, he said she may have "reacted" to the People's National Movement (PNM)-led rally against the Section 34 fiasco and "impulsively" removed him.
"Her (Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar's) heart is in the right place. She can make errors, I don't know if she acted on advice or impulsively on the march," he said.
On September 18, the PNM and civil society groups led a midday march to deliver a petition to the President which called for, inter alia, the removal of both Volney and Attorney General Anand Ramlogan.
A self-described "good Catholic", Volney showed his chaplet beads and said in order to move forward, one must forgive.
"I have forgiven the Prime Minister. You know we all make errors in life. I think my dismissal was an error. It was precipitated by a march and by, I suspect, certain internal pressure that I have spoken of already."
Volney was referring to the Congress of the People (COP), which, just two days ago, he had blamed for his fate.
Soon after his removal on September 20, Volney took to his Facebook page and blasted Ramlogan for engineering his dismissal. He had then criticised Ramlogan for having the ear of the Prime Minister and for not wanting him in the Government.
By Wednesday, the blame shifted to the COP and its leader, Prakash Ramadhar. Volney said then that when the proclamation of Section 34 went before Cabinet for confirmation and he (Volney) was out of the country, the acting Justice Minister was Ramadhar.
He also said it was Ramadhar who led "an assault" against him.
Though relegated to the back bench, Volney did not sit at the end of the bench, as directed by Government Chief Whip Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal, and instead chose to sit in the middle.
When asked if that show of defiance meant he was not under the directive of the United National Congress (UNC), Volney said: "I am very comfortable where I am sitting and if I had been following the Government Whip I would have been sitting at the very end."
Volney said he remained a firm supporter of the UNC and would be adding his opinion on the Motion of Censure against Ramlogan, which was filed by PNM leader Dr Keith Rowley.
"I expect to go on the offensive. I plan to bat like the West Indies did today (yesterday) because the truth has to be told and has to be retold because the message is understood," he said.
Volney said he would speak against the motion and "heavily" in Ramlogan's favour. "This is just a diversion from the work of Parliament," he said.
Volney said despite the internal issues in the People's Partnership and his own dissatisfaction with the COP, he will not resign from the UNC and create a vacancy in the party.
