Minister of Works and Transport Responds to Member of Parliament for Oropouche West, Mr Davendranath Tancoo

28 May 2021

In my capacity as Minister of Works and Transport, I wish to respond to a social media post made by Oropouche West MP, Mr Davendranath Tancoo, directed at residents of that area. His rant focuses on the threat of flooding and calls on them to "demand attention" for drainage work to begin on the floodgates of Tulsa Trace, Woodland and Central Trace in Fyzabad-areas he claims have been neglected for years.

I take this opportunity to convey to the public that the claims of MP Tancoo are both false and malicious in nature.
