UNC urges peaceful protest amidst outcry over sea bridge woes

Protest, but do so peacefully.

That’s the advice coming from the United National Congress (UNC) ahead of the motion of no confidence to be brought before Parliament today against Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan for his role in the collapse of the sea bridge.

The party issued the call as it said it has taken note of the widespread dissatisfaction expressed by citizens regarding the Minister’s performance and urged all those planning to demonstrate Friday outside of Parliament to do so peacefully.

“The United National Congress urges all who wish to demonstrate in front of Parliament in condemnation or support of the Minister during tomorrow's (Friday’s) debate of no confidence on the Minister do so peacefully and with respect for the laws of the land.”

There have been calls over social media for demonstrations outside of Parliament ahead of the motion.

The party claims, however, that a directive have been given for Government workers to appear outside Parliament in support of Minister Sinanan.

“It is expected that given the widespread dissatisfaction with Minister Sinanan’s performance, that concerned citizens will come out in their numbers to let their voices be heard on the matter,” the UNC said.

Parliament will convene at 1.30 pm.
