Trinidad & Tobago PM takes oath of office on Gita

Hindus have applauded Kamla Persad-Bisssessar, recently elected first female Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, for taking the Oath of Office on ancient Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita.



Nevada (US): Hindus have applauded Kamla Persad-Bisssessar, recently elected first female Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, for taking the Oath of Office on ancient Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, commending Persad-Bisssessar, 58, for this act, urged other politicians also to do the same.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said that as Bhagavad-Gita talked about endeavoring constantly to serve the world’s welfare without any thought of personal gain, it should be the treatise for all the politicians and rulers of the world.

Oath of Office to Persad-Bisssessar was administered by His Excellency President George Maxwell Richards in a ceremony at Knowsley (Port of Spain) on June 26.

Persad Bissessar’s rise began in January last year, when she successfully challenged her mentor, Basdeo Panday, for leadership of the United National Congress party, which he founded 20 years ago.

Said to be settled at least 7,000 years ago, dual-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago in southern Caribbean, heavily influenced by petroleum industry, is known for Carnival, mesmerizing beaches and calypso music.
