Protestors played cat and mouse with officers
of the Barrackpore Police station yesterday at
Borde Narve as several of them managed to sneak
away and ignite new fires, blocking the road for
a fourth time in one day.
The residents, continuing their protest action
from last Monday, again blocked the roadway and
burned tyres and other debris to complain about
bad road conditions.
Eventually the smoke alerted the officers, who
visited the scene of the blockage and looked on as
the group of about 15 men clapped and chanted
"we want we road fix right now" in front of the
Several residents say promises by their member
of Parliament, Nizam Baksh, to meet with them
have not materalised.
"We were supposed to meet with him last Tues-
day, about 300 of us gathered here but he never
"This is the fourth time we blocking and we will
keep doing it until we get the road fixed," said
Various spots along the Cipero Road were blocked
at 4 am, 6 am and at noon yesterday.
Another protestor, Jason Latchan, said the res-
idents had other issues that needed to be addressed
but they were being ignored by their MP.
He added: "We have a MP that every time he
comes here is one set of promises.
"It have people with other issues that need to
be addressed. People need jobs and proper sporting
facilities for the youths.
"If you having a community and have nothing
to occupy yourself, what you expect the youths to
get involved in, not the wrong thing?" he asked.
Latchan referred to an overgrown recreation
ground, opposite La Paille Junction, which he said
had been in that state for years.
One officer eventually instructed the men to put
out the fire, telling them it presented a hazard to
The men agreed but walked away and did not
return. A backhoe from the Penal Debe Regional
Corporation (PDRC), which was used earlier in the
day to remove debris, was immobilised a short dis-
tance away with a flat tyre.
Resident Thomas Ramsingh called on Works and
Infrastructure Minister Surujrattan Rambachan to
say why infrastructure was being upgraded in
protest over road
Penal/Debe and Barrackpore but Borde Narve
was being left out.
He complained: "In the whole of Penal/Debe,
Siparia, box drains and roads fixed. The whole
of the Rochard Road, fixed, box drains, road paved
so what happen to the Borde Narve people?
"We is not a part of Naparima area? Barrackpore
is not Naparima area alone, Borde Narve is part
of it too. What all yuh want for we to go PNM?"
MP WILLING TO MEET
Speaking to the T&T Guardian
yesterday, via phone, MP for the area,
Nizam Baksh, who is in Spain in a
telecommunications conference, said a
meeting had been set with residents for
"I spoke to the president of the village
council. We will be meeting next Tuesday
as regards to the road and how to get this
situation resolved as quickly as possible,"
Responding to calls for the recreation
ground to be maintained, Baksh said the
Penal/Debe Regional Corporation was
responsible for its maintenance but most
of the ground was now occupied by
"Squatters took over a big part of the
ground. There is very little room for
anyone to use that ground for recreation.
In fact, I have never seen that ground
used," he said.
He urged residents to liaise with him
when they have issues.
"If they come and share their ideas with
me, we could figure something out. If it is
jobs they want, they need to say what
kind of jobs and what kind of experience
and qualifications they have," he added.
