FORMER SPEAKER MOHAMMED SPEAK OUT !!!
IS MOONILAL BAITING TRUMP ???
FORMER speaker Nizam has questions whether a letter from Oropouch East MP Dr.Moonill to the US Ambassador to TT was meant to baite US President Donald Trump.
Writing to US Ambassdor as he did was reckless, crazy and to be condemned, Mohammed. He said Moonilal inability to find a way to raise the issue in Parliament showed he was "Slothful."
"Is Dr.Moonilal baiting such irrationlity ? Does he represent the official position of the Opposition on foreign affairs policy which is clearly in Opposition to the Government's postion ?
This is not only am act of recklessness, but it's simply crazy. God forbid, should the US contemplate anything inimi al to the interest of T&T citizens in this guava season, will the Opposition claim victory against the people ?
"We are a small nation but we are a sovereign state and anyone who want to condemn us to our smallness should be stopped, be he member of Parliament or whoever."
Is that in consonance with oath of office they have all taken? To debate any matter is no business of US. Not even our Courts will venture to enquire into the internal operations of our Parliament."
"In any event the US Embassy has more information about our affairs than Dr.Moonilal cn imagine. Why does he has to be so patronising?"
Mohammed stressed the standing orders of Parliament provide adequate safeguards to ensure all matters are brought to the table through astute and robust application of these rules by alert members.
