Declaring that the Allen Chastanet administration is vindictive and shameless, Vieux Fort North MP Moses ‘Musa’ Jn Baptiste has strongly criticised them for abruptly stopping the STEP (Stimulus) programme for some in his constituency.
Jn Baptiste made the comments in a post on the official Facebook page of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).
“Thursday 12th 2019 will be remembered for a blatant act of victimization by the UWP,” he declared.
According to Jn Baptiste, Individuals who working in the STEP or Stimulus were asked to stop work earlier that day.
” It was discovered that the order came from the Chairperson of the Vieux Fort North Council, who in turn has indicated that the order to stop work came from high up in the government,” the MP stated.
He observed that interestingly, a new group of workers have started work.
He disclosed that many claimed that the UWP’s losing candidates reported to their Party that too many “Labour – looking” people were working.
Jn Baptiste said he has demanded that the people be paid in full.
“How vindictive, heartless and insensitive. More on this developing story soon,” he asserted.
