Meanwhile the Dr. Ramdharsingh acting in the capacity of Social Development Minister was hesitant to comment on another issue – this time affecting Tobagonians.

The Tobago House of Assembly is upset over  his failure to heed its recommendations to the board of the Local Public Assistance Board.

The THA suggested four members  for the Board but the Minister  appointed members whom the THA says  have been inactive.

In light of this, the THA  announced it will launch an emergency social assistance card for Tobagonians whohave not been receiving pension and other forms of social assistance.
