Ramadharsingh wants cultural museum in Siparia

LAUREL V WILLIAMS Monday, March 20 2017

The chairman of the Siparia Regional Corporation (SRC) is hoping that government constructs a museum devoted to culture to honour the contributions made by burgesses.

SRC’s chairman Dr Glenn Ramadharsingh, during the national cleanup campaign on Saturday, made the suggestion to Rural Development and Local Government Minister Kazim Hosein. At the time the Minister was at the popular Daisy Voisin hub located along High Street, Siparia.

The hub was named in honour of the late Alexandra Daisy Voisin, dubbed the Queen of Parang.

She was the leader of the parang group La Divina Pastora.

“We want to have a natural history museum devoted to culture, to the works of Daisy Voisin and so many others like (entertainer) Machel Montano.

He is from Siparia, we had (historian) Angelo Bissessarsingh.

We have a lot of people in the arts and culture. We have the Siparia Deltones and Diatonics, we have good tassa groups,” Ramadharsingh said.

Ramadharsingh was the Social Development Minister under the Kamla Persad-Bissessar-led administration. Persad-Bissessar is the Member of Parliament for Siparia and Opposition Leader.

Ramadharsingh said that Siparia is developing rapidly and is close to borough status. At the hub on Saturday, volunteers joined with the Minister and Chairman to clean up the area.

The clean-up campaign continued in the municipality and Ramadharsingh added that at Murray Trace someone attempted to create a scrap yard, without legal authority to do so. Overgrown trees were trimmed, major rivers courses cleaned, derelict vehicles removed and dilapidated buildings demolished as part of the exercise.

Hosein told Newsday that Siparia was the eighth of 14 corporations to be part of the campaign.

Next week the team heads to the Point Fortin Borough Corporation and he called on volunteers to come out and clean up their respective communities.

He thanked all volunteers, including the corporate community, for their assistance in the exercise.
