Excellent job by Rambachan
THE EDITOR: One of the human characteristics which we seem not to possess as a society in great quantity is the ability to express appreciation and to congratulate good performance.
Sometimes we try to exalt ourselves in the failure of others. In other words we feel good about ourselves only if others so feel. In this regard, whether you like the Kamla Persad-Bissessar Government or not, kudos have to go to current Minister of Works Suruj Rambachan and the various officers in his ministry who have demonstrated a level of delivery and performance which I have not seen in the past.
Today I specifically refer to the road works in Manzanilla and the recent completion of the Valencia by-pass. The latter project has cut traffic jams to almost zero while in the Manzanilla case few would have believed that after just a month connectivity would have been re-established.
On Sunday afternoon at approximately 5 pm, I saw Rambachan personally directing works in Manzanilla and wondered what his motivation was except to please the travelling public.
I congratulate the minister and his team on the several pieces of road works being done and particularly for the speed and efficiency with which they are being carried out.
