Jack: Kublalsingh Killing Himself, and he Should Do it Quickly!!

Minister of National Security,
Jack Warner addressing supporters last night
at a meeting at Debe High School.
In a meeting for supporters at the United National Congress (UNC) last night, National Security Minister Jack Warner defended Government's decision to build the Mon Desir segment of the Point Fortin Highway, describing hunger striker Dr Wayne Kublalsingh as a conman who was attempting to blackmail the country.

Warner said Kublalsingh, now in his 13th day without food or water, was eating at night He told party supporters that Kublalsingh was staying at homes in Maraval and Marabella and "eating more hearty than you".

He indicated that Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar will not be held responsible if Kublalsingh dies. 
What was surprisingly said by Warner was, "They say the Prime Minister is killing Wayne Kublalsingh, but he is killing himself and he better do it quickly! Don’t feel sorry for him. Kublalsingh is trying to blackmail the country and blackmail the Prime Minister."

Kublalsingh's father, Ray Kublalsingh, refused to respond to Warner's statements. Ray said that Warner was "a non-entity.  indicating that his family is respectable, and that they have worked hard to achieve what they have and they are supporting his son. "I heard everything he said about my son and my family and I don't even want to entertain that. I will not respond," he said.

Warner then attacked his supporters and visitors, "Look at the people who are trying to ride the Kublalsingh bandwagon! What is their motivation? Is it that they are against the highway? Or are they there because they have some grudge against the Prime Minister? Every one of them has a political wound and they are looking for revenge. Every single one of them has an axe to grind against Kamla. Their presence, kissing Kublalsingh’s hand and patting his forehead, Verna spitting up, has nothing to do with the highway. They see him as a stepping stone for their own political agendas and aspirations."

Persad-Bissessar at the same meeting did not address Kublalsingh's hunger strike in her speech. Instead she told supporters about the benefits of the highway to Point Fortin. She indicated that a meeting was held with the Highway Re Route Movement in March and a technical report was produced.
