PM reaffirms commitment to the people; has no room for Rowley's "doom and gloom"

Kamla Persad-Bissessar went to Carapo in eastern Trinidad Monday night to reaffirm her commitment to the people of Trinidad and Tobago. 

"On May 24th, 2010, we started this People’s Partnership Government, and as the name says… We are partners with you the people!" she declared at a political meeting of the United National Congress.

"As partners with all the Citizens of Trinidad & Tobago, we must have dialog. Because a Government without a dialog with its people, is doomed to fail."

She took the opportunity to slam the leader of the opposition saying that dialogue is something that Keith Rowley and the PNM do not understand. "As Prime Minister, I’ve demonstrated what it takes to lead and manage political diversity, and how to develop common positions around challenging issues, and place the interest of you, the people, above all other interests," she said.

And she pledged that "our opponents" will never return to office "once we remain one and keep our focus".

She reminded her audience that the People's Partnership is a result of the people's desires "for a unity and togetherness of ideas, and for us to stand together" to represent T&T.

She said Rowley's political style is confrontation, not dialogue and made it clear that she is not bothered "with the gloom and doom prediction Mr Rowley has been barking and terrorising the countryside with.
As Prime Minister, I cannot be distracted by Mr Rowley’s lack of vision and contempt for anyone that is not a PNM member." 

She added, "This is not a nation of gloom and doom."

The Prime Minister said she and her government would continue to work relentlessly in the war against the criminals, to ensure that people's basic needs are met in a timely manner and that 
"no child in this country will go to bed hungry, and that every child will have an equal opportunity to be educated". 

She pledged that her government would assist the poor and ensure that the elderly will not be forgotten or marginalized. "This is my personal mission," she said.

"I will work with the Churches, temples mosques, and with the NGO’s to create a higher morality and a values driven society.
I will work with a vision that make this country a land of opportunities for all. 

She recalled the inauguration address by President Carmona one week ago in which he called on all our citizens to re dedicate to the principles of discipline, tolerance and production.

"His was an address in which he called for all citizens to work together to fix crime, to rethink their work ethic, to give a fair day’s work for a fair days pay, and of rediscovering our destiny of creating hope for a better world.

"That is a message we must all embrace as a people. It is a message that my government shares, that we embrace and we endorse!"
