Jagdeo employs former UNC Minister in Trinidad Consulate

Ganga Singh was Minister of the Environment in the former United National Congress (UNC) government led by Kamla Persad – Bissessar. Singh confirmed his current job status to the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has also verified the same.

According to the Guardian, the Public Diplomacy office at Guyana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that former United National Congress minister Ganga Singh is now employed “by the Government of Guyana as Director of Trade, Investment, and Agriculture”.

Singh and Persad-Bissessar share a moment

The publication also said, “President of the CGID, Rickford Burke is contending that the “racist” PPP removed an African-Guyanese from the local Guyanese Consulate in order to appoint Singh. He is also accusing the PPP of creating the post in order to facilitate payback to Singh for work he did for them during the 2020 General Elections in Guyana.”

Singh is not the only person in recent times to be accused of meddling and interfering in Guyana’s politics. Trinidad Prime Minister Keith Rowley who is due in Guyana next month was incensed by UNC Member of Parliament Rodney Charles recently, who he accused of “stoking” fears between Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago

PM Rowley said Charles was talking about him and Former President David Granger, alleging that because of their camaraderie “that is the reason why I am not associating with the politics of Guyana.” Rowley added, “Unlike some of them, we are not interfering in the politics of any country.”
