‘Sherod Duncan’s lawless onslaught against Manickchand repugnant’ – Human Services Minister
See below full statement issued by Minister of Human Services and Social Security, Dr Vindhya Persaud:
The lawless and disrespectful onslaught by sitting MP. Sherod Duncan on Minister of Education Priya Manickchand through jingles and utterances using the vile terms and references is most repugnant and must be unhesitatingly condemned.
In a world where we are all fighting for the rights and respect of women every day, it is contemptible that an MP who sits in the highest forum of the land will spew and share this level of nastiness against a woman.
I understand that there maybe opposing views on many issues, but to descend to this level of vulgarity is unacceptable and these perpetrators must be called out. I condemn this utterly disgusting kind of behavior and I hope those who speak out on respect for women will join me in condemning this.
