Shyne Barrow Takes on Minister Dolores-Balderamos over Grocery Bags

The Opposition also criticized the government for its Grocery Bag initiative and called out specifically Minister of Human Development Dolores Balderamos Garcia. In a recent interview, Balderamos-Garcia told the press that there isn’t enough money to assist everyone. Today, Mesopotamia representative Shyne Barrow criticized the minister for failing the people.

“How is it that you will have a curfew but the minister of human development is now saying that everybody cannot get? I anticipated that this would have been the position in the last house meeting because in the last house meeting when she gave her statement from minister there was absolutely no plan, no discussion as to specifically the covid-19, unemployment relief fund, the food assistance program, the boosts, the pantry which again under a public state of emergency, these things are necessary. People cannot go out there to catch and kill, how will the people provide from themselves? So it is terrible failure on the part of this P.U.P. administration to not lay out any transparent timeline, description of what is it that they will do to respond to the state of emergency that we are in.”
