Central government should not have usurped power of city council by suspending parking meters

Dear Editor, With reference to your several news items on the Cabinet and Minister Bulkan suspending the parking meter bylaws and the clamping of vehicles (SN, March 20, 21, 22), it is my view the central government is usurping the power of the local government Georgetown City Council and in so doing has set a precedent to emaciate all locally elected bodies.

The diaspora supports MAPM

Dear Editor,        It is indeed with deep sadness that I pen this epistle in denouncing unequivocally and unapologetically, the recent unwise decision of the rudderless Mayor & City Council to enter into an agreement with the Smart City Solutions for the implementation of a parking meter programme in Georgetown.
