Member of Parliament for Tabaquite, Dr Surujrattan Rambachan, is condemning the planned traffic disruptions on the Uriah Butler Highway this weekend, as the Works and Transport Ministry carries out road works.
Dr Rambachan, who is a former minister of Works and Transport, believes the disruption is a deliberate move by the PNM to hamper UNC campaigning over the weekend.
The full text of the MP’s release, follows…
Frustrated over a dangerous rickety wooden bridge in their community, residents of Piparo Road, Tabaquite yesterday held a fiery protest calling for a new bridge.
Shouting “we want we bridge fix right now,” the residents with placards burned debris and gathered at the Piparo Road bridge.
The road is the main access point to and from their community. They complained that on numerous occasions, residents’ feet have gone through gaping holes in the bridge causing them injuries while vehicles have been damaged.
A 36-year-old Tababquite man has been charged with the attempted murder of his aunt according to a release by the TTPS. The following is the full statement:
A man is due to appear before a Chaguanas Magistrate today, charged with the attempted murder of his aunt, Ria Meera Bajan, on Saturday 5th August, 2017.
A man has been chopped to death.
CNC3 News understands that the incident took place at Allen Road, Tabaquite early this morning.
The victim has been identified as Stanley Seecharan.
Details are still sketchy, and we'd have more on this story in a subsequent news update.
Seecharan's murder comes mere hours after a 33-year-old farmer was shot and killed in Biche.
