Opposition Leader urges unity in Divali Nagar speech


    Opposition and UNC Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has called for national unity, as the country gets ready to celebrate Divali.

    Speaking on the Main Stage at the Divali Nagar last night, she said: “I want to ask you all to guard against those who may try to divide us. Those who recognize their only pathway to power is through division and hatred. We must recognize them and become even stronger in the face of their division.”

    She also did a bit of campaigning, as she praised the performances displayed on the stage that night.

    She said her party recognizes the critical economic role of the creative sector, and re-stated some of the UNC’s plans to support it.
