CONGRESS of the People (COP) leader Winston Dookeran wants Trade Minister Dr Keith Rowley to replace Martin Joseph as National Security Minister.
Leading an anti-crime rally outside Whitehall, Dookeran gave his party’s anti-crime plan to advisor to the Prime Minister, Herbert Atwell. Dookeran also urged the establishment of a Ministry of Justice separate from the Minister of National Security.
He called on Prime Minister Patrick Manning to explain what he meant by his claim of a peculiar crime surge after the PNM’s recent General Election victory. “He owes it to the nation to go on public television and explain the ‘politics’ behind the crime situation.”
Dookeran hit Joseph whom he claimed had admitted he is not up to the task and said that Joseph should be replaced. “I am suggesting as a citizen that Mr Keith Rowley, who has demonstrated some competence in his track-record in his previous Ministry (Housing) and has shown grit in tackling problems head on, be made the Minister of National Security,” Dookeran said.
Dookeran said that failing that, Manning himself should take up the national security portfolio to show he is taking responsibility for TT’s unprecedented crime surge.
“I also said we should perhaps take the unprecedented step of going back to the polls on the issue of crime and we are ready for that contest.”
However, Rowley scoffed at Dookeran saying the COP leader could only allocate Ministries when he wins a General Election. Rowley said the COP boss must accept that the General Election is over and the Congress lost.
