Linden Crisis fourth week
The refusal, reluctance and the neglect so far by President Donald Ramator to meet with the people of Linden in the township itself is unpardonable, that’s the view of AFC executive Moses Nagamootoo.
The protest action is entering its fourth week and president Ramotar is calling for a return to normalcy before any meeting with the community. Nagamootoo believes the president’s action is sending the wrong signal.
And the former PPP stalwart believes that ruling party should ask the Home Affairs Minister to demit office since in his view he bears some of the responsibilities for the shooting of the protestors. Parliament moved a no confidence motion against Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee last week. Nagamootoo made reference to the former Home Affairs minister Ronald Gadraj and the phantom squad operations, when he was forced to resign.
Lindeners have pledged to continue their struggle until justice is served in the shooting death of the protestors and imposed tariff increases taken off the table.
