The Cane Producers Association has rounded on the Opposition Leader over her comments on cash payments to farmers. 

In a press release the body also knocked Mrs. Persad Bissessar for her comments which attempted to blame the non-payment of the EU grant to cane farmers on the present Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley.

The farmers said Mrs. Persad Bissessar failed to adequately address the longstanding issue of utilization of the EU grant funding for the benefit of cane farmers during her five years as Prime Minister.

It continued that her statement were an attempt to divert attention away from her time in government, where hundreds of millions of dollars were collected from the EU and no mechanism was put in place for the cane farmers to benefit.
