Health Minister and Barataria/
San Juan candidate Dr Fuad Khan
said for some nine years he was
victimised by the former PNM
Khan was addressing party sup-
porters at a public meeting held at
the Barataria South Secondary
School on Monday night.
A senior neurologist, Khan said
from 2001 to 2010 the PNM had
refused to employ him while the
party was in power.
"That is what I am showing you
is the level of victimisation you will
feel. And you tend to forget it when
you in government. When we were
kicked out of office in 2001 vic-
timisation started down the line,"
He also sent a clarion call to party
supporters, urging that for the PP
Government to remain in power,
the marginal seats must be won.
Acknowledging that victory
would entail hard work, Khan said:
"If you want to see us back in office
it is not going to be easy. Everything
that we do is a movement towards
victory on September 7, but it does
not come easy.
"We need to get every single vote
in our country."
Zeroing in on the undecided vot-
ers, Khan said it was particularly
important that they were targeted.
"We have to go out and bring in
most of the undecided voters. Those
voters who asking: What have you
done for me lately? What will you do
for me tomorrow?
"We are going to tell them, Once we
get back in office not only will you get
your library but you will also get an
expansion of the San Juan market," Khan
He said a couple months ago when
the market was opened the "PNM cor-
poration" (San Juan/Laventille Regional
Corporation) kicked out most of the
vendors who had been there for some
20 to 30 years and brought in their own
people into the market.
"So that is what you are facing. That
is the discrimination you will face if the
PNM ever gets into office. It is something
we have to be very careful about because
when you walk around the country you
hear that the election tight," Khan said.
Also in attendance was St Joseph MP
and Trade Minister Vasant Bharath who
Khan said was also contesting a marginal
"We have to take the corridor to get
into office. Make sure that you call your
families and friends in St Joseph to make
sure Vasant become(s) the next MP for
St Joseph. But it does not come easy,"
Turing to Prime Minister Kamla Per-
sad-Bissessar, Khan said: "What do you
get with the Prime Minister....you get a
good-looking woman. You get somebody
with a melodious voice...compare the
other side. You get somebody who goes
to the ground and kisses you and makes
sure you are well taken care of. That is
"All you ever see Rowley kissing any-
body and hugging them up? I haven t,"
But in the same breath Khan described
Rowley as his colleague, adding that he
would "never bad talk him."

The UNC'S campaign manager
Rodney Charles has accused Rowley of
being a hypocrite.
He said over the past few months
the PNM was too detached from reality
to realise that the UNC's campaign was
based on issues.
"In an attempt to acquaint them with
the most important issue of all...the
issue of accountability, we launched the
Rowley accountability campaign. We
have asked Rowley to produce the plan
for the nation but thus far he is yet to
respond. Instead he said he launched a
hate campaign," Charles said.
He accused Rowley of not only being
unwilling to account but also a
"Where can you find more bacchanal
than on the PNM platform? He himself
is guilty of encouraging his supporters
to look at everything else but that
which is important," Charles said,
adding that on many occasions Rowley
had made "vile remarks" about Persad-
He said there had been many
"disgusting displays" by PNM members
on the political platform including those
from the PNM's lady vice-chairman
"Who is really running a smear
campaign? Keith Rowley has no plan.
He is an angry man with a multitude of
vanity projects that they want to use
taxpayers money to finance," Charles
In 2006, he said, Robinson-Regis
used a Government-issued credit card
for her personal purposes .
