PORT OF SPAIN — A day after thousands marched through the streets of Port-of-Spain demanding the removal of Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and National Security Minister Jack Warner, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar had this to say to supporters: “Let not your hearts be troubled.”

Delivering remarks at the Siparia Women’s Association 15th Divali celebrations at her constituency office in Penal on Saturday night, Persad-Bisssesar sought to dispel any doubt about the stability of the People’s Partnership Government.

Friday’s march in Port-of-Spain, titled In Defence of Our Democracy, was attended by groups comprising Fitun, including the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union, the Estate Police Association, Fire Services Association, Prisons Officers Association, Wallerfield Farmers Association, the Arima Maxi Taxi Association, Disabled People’s International, the Artistes Coalition, the CWU, Fixin’ T&T, the Opposition and the Movement for Social Justice.

Steering clear of the marchers’ demand for the removal Ramlogan and‚Warner, she instead praised all her government ministers, including Ramlogan who was one of the ministers at the function. Warner was not present. (Guardian)
