Make no mistake this is not over, and while many within the UNC would like to consider the matter firmly swept under the rug and moved on from, the other members of the partnership are still smarting from the abrasion and the population as a whole are now looking at Kamla and her government in a whole new and unflattering light. If the partnership breaks over this issue the reaction to the slight cannot be given more precedence than the slight itself and the Prime Minister needs to earn her title now more than ever. To the members of the COP their party is still a party in its own right and deserves respect if nothing else.
Surely she (Kamla) herself is politically astute enough to know that any blowback from here damages her more than anyone else, and she should be the one to insist, if only because it is the decent thing to do, that the squeaky wheel should get the grease. His high handed poaching without consultation of a coalition partner party's member reeks of a dictatorial arrogance that we were assured we were voting out when we voted Patos and his cabal out and I strongly suggest, if only for the stink that this whole fiasco has caused and the threat to the stability of the government, Roodal Moonilal should be fired from the Cabinet immediately.
