Moonilal tells Rowley it's time to stop giving ultimatums; says Saturday's rally would 'shut up' PNM

Roodal Moonilal suggested on Monday that Keith Rowley should stop giving ultimatums to the government. 

The latest from Rowly is a demand for Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to fire Attorney General Anand Ramlogan by Wednesday.
Rowley told his party last Sunday: "I invite everyone of you present in this room to come to Five Rivers Junction Wednesday night. If by Wednesday Anand Ramlogan is still the Attorney General of Trinidad and Tobago, I am asking the people of Trinidad and Tobago to stand by for further action."

Moonilal, who is one of the deputy leaders of the United National Congress (UNC), told the Guardian newspaper, "
I want to demand that he stop giving ultimatums or else we will expose him."

Moonilal also spoke about the People's Partnership's rally Mid centre-Mall, Chaguanas, on Saturday from 2 pm. He said supporters and activists demanded that rally, noting that they are “extremely hungry and thirsty” for such an event, especially in the light of the PNM's recent protest march.
Moonilal called the PNM a big group of hypocrites. “We have looked on and we believe it is time that we respond in the public,” he said, noting that between 25,000 and 30,000 people will hear the message at the rally on Saturday.

“This rally is also to send a message to the hypocrites in the PNM who believe they are holier than thou,” he said, noting that the event would be a demonstration of the power of the people...I think the mass rally will at least shut up the PNM for a while.” 

The Prime Minister is expected to deliver a major address. Other leaders of the partnership also would address the rally, including Minority Leader in the Tobago House of Assembly (THA), Ashworth Jack, who is the political leader of the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP). 

Moonilal is also expecting "the rank-and-file members of the Movement for Social Justice" (MSJ), whom he said are still supporting the PP although the leaders have walked away. Rowley has been courting the MSJ leader, David Abdullah, who has said he would meet with Rowley.
