Even at 87, there is no stopping former prime minister Basdeo Panday as he embarks on another chapter of his political career.
As the general election is due, he said he cannot stand idly by and watch the country continue along its current path.
Panday, speaking on his birthday on Monday, said, “We are in a terrible position. I am not in the government and therefore, I do not have all the facts and I don’t know what they are doing and how they are going to deal with the economy. I may simply have to wait and see.
“Or I may have to intervene in the politics myself. I certainly cannot sit down quietly. I am ready and I am at a stage where I can handle anything.”
Panday said with certainty that he will be supporting his daughter Mickela Panday and her party the Patriotic Front (PF).
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
