Tabaquite MP tells Public Utilities Minister come see water woes

Tabaquite MP Surujrattan Rambachan has extended an invitation to Public Utilities Minister Fitzgerald Hinds to visit his constituency and hear the concerns of residents about their lack of a proper water supply.

Rambachan says dozens of people from including local government representatives, have reached out expressing their dissatisfaction with their ongoing water woes. 

“Recently you stated that people's claim of a lack of water for weeks is being "exaggerated". That statement clearly shows you are out of touch with the reality of what is taking place. Hence, I'm asking for you to visit our area to hear and see first hand, what the people are facing,” the UNC MP stated.

Rambhachan further advised Hinds that as the Minister of Public Utilities, it is his duty to address the problems of those in need.

“Rather than dismiss the concern raised, maybe you can see to have it looked into and addressed. It should not be a situation where people are paying for the utility and are not receiving it,” the MP added.

He further outlined the affected areas as follows: 

• Parts of lower Poonah
