Why no State of Emergency declaration in Linden?
On August 23rd, 2011, the PPP/C-led Government of Guyana supported Trinidad and Tobago government for imposing a limited state of emergency to restore order and normalcy to the country due to criminal activities at the time.
A year later, the same PPP/C government has not called a state of emergency whether limited or fully to bring normalcy to the community of Linden. The government has chosen confrontation and chaos in dealing with the matter while pleading miles away for normalcy.
If the Mr. Ramotar-led government was serious about “thugs” and “extremists” causing destruction, then the best way to take control of these criminal activities that the PPP administration have been claiming are in Linden, would be to activate a state of emergency in Linden. Maybe we could have prevented the bloodshed and burning of so many buildings. Mr. Ramotar’s leadership begs reasoning.
