Fiery protest in Iere Village

Councillor Chris Hosein (second from left) chats with taxi drivers and residents of Iere Village, Princes Town who are protesting the deplorable condition of the Naparima Mayaro Road in their area.

Councillor Chris Hosein says he stands in solidarity with his burgesses of Iere Village, Princes Town who yesterday staged a fiery protest in their community to highlight the deplorable condition of the main road. Members of the Naparima Mayaro Main Road Taxi Drivers Association simultaneously held a peaceful demonstration a short distance away. Hosein told Newsday, “Since I became a councillor eight months ago, I have been begging for the Ministry of Works to fix this road and nothing is being done.

They are now angry and I don’t blame residents for feeling a sense of neglect.” Hosein said the bad road stretches for about a mile and a half along the Naparima Mayaro Road, Iere Village. He said a recent tour of the Naparima constituency by Works Minister Rohan Sinanan is yet to bear fruit. Residents have vowed to keep up the protest if nothing is done.
