Having received several complaints from Riverstown, Essequibo Coast residents about their frustration regarding the manner in which a project was designed and implemented by the Ministry of Public Infrastructure — without any consultation with the Region or residents, Regional Chairman Devanand Ramdatt and Councillors of the Region Two Administration visited the area on Friday last and met with residents.The team was shocked to see the destruction of many bearing plantain suckers, they having been thrown to the ground.According to a farmer, he lost more than one hundred bearing plantain suckers and is contemplating legal action.Residents are also claiming that the project was done on private farm lands.It was brought to the attention of the visiting team that no engineer or technical staff visited the construction site, and as such, substandard work is being done.It was noted that neither the RDC, NDCs, nor residents were provided with project details and Bills of Quantities.Residents felt they were being grossly disrespected, and therefore compelled the Regional Chairman and Councillors to make immediate contact with the Ministry of Public Infrastructure to get details about the construction project.
