General Secretary of the Jamaica Labour Party Dr Horace Chang says the JLP is holding the PNP responsible for damage to public property, loss of income, school time as well as injuries to innocent Jamaicans caught up in protests they organized in St Thomas.
Dr Chang, in acknowledging the challenges faced by many Jamaicans due to road damage caused by historical neglect and recent weather events, says the JLP government continues to implement programs to deal with these challenges.
“The St Thomas road will be fixed next year by the JLP Government, as was announced, so too will many roads across the island under the MIDP program. It is irresponsible for political operatives to be trying to shut down parts of the country for their narrow political aims when they know solutions have been announced and are to be implemented soon”.
Dr Chang says he hopes good sense will prevail and that residents who want to protest whatever issue will do so in a peaceful way. He says, “People have a right to protest but such protests should not interfere with the business and lives of other Jamaicans. That we cannot support”.
