TRINIDAD Y TOBAGO: Sat shocked - EntornoInteligente

Trinidad Express / Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha (SDMS) secretary general, Satnarayan Maharaj said yesterday he was shocked by the wine People’s National Movement (PNM) political leader Dr Keith Rowley had with a teenage girl. He called on Rowley, who is aspiring to be this country’s prime minister, to take immediate action to correct the negative images being reflected on himself and the 17-year-old girl photographed wining with him during Carnival Tuesday celebrations in San Fernando. Maharaj said there was a clear distinction between Rowley and Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, who spent Carnival Tuesday night praying with Hindus on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. Maharaj was responding to the controversy surrounding photographs on social media networks showing Rowley chipping on stage with Ravina Rampersad. They both played mas in Kalicharan’s band Bazodee. Rampersad is a former pupil of Parvati Girls Hindu College, Debe. The school is operated by the SDMS. Maharaj said Rampersad, who lives in Union Hall, near San Fernando, was now a student at the University of Trinidad and Tobago. “I am shocked that a man with ambitions to be this country’s prime minister will behave like that with a teenager. She is a teenager, only 17 years old, a teenager in the public. We see immediately the difference between Rowley, in his ambition to be prime minister, and that of Kamla Persad-Bissessar. “There is Kamla with her grandson. The same night she visited about ten temples in the presence of her son. They went and performed their poojas and rituals. There is a difference in the kind of person…there is a difference between these two characters,” he said. He however also noted that Hindus were not prevented from participating in Carnival activities. “I don’t know whether she (Rampersad) had control of the situation at all. What control does a 17-year-old have of what transpired on stage? I am looking on Facebook and the amount of negatives that is coming out there. Mr Rowley would have to take some kind of actions to correct the images that are coming out of there,” he said. Previous Article Alexander: Question to answer if investigated
