The Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Power and Light Company, Bharat Dindyal has been formally notified that the government no longer requires his services.
Dindyal, whose contract with GPL, expired since last December was informed yesterday that his engagement with the company will expire today Friday, August 14th at 4pm.
Cabinet was informed of the decision taken by the Minister of Public Infrastructure yesterday.
When Dindyal’s contract expired in December 2014, he was kept on the job although there were no documents to show an extension in his contract or any agreement to keep him in the employ of the company.
When the Government changed following the May 11, 2015 elections, Dindyal informed the Minister of Public Infrastructure that he was still in the employ of the company because of an “understanding” he had with former Prime Minister Sam Hinds.
He had no supporting documents to confirm the “understanding” and what exactly it entailed. But that “understanding” would have been for a six month period which expired at the end of June. The government is also not satisfied with the way the company was being managed under Dindyal’s watch.
And this past week, Dindyal was caught on video cursing out his Deputy Chief Executive Officer after the man sent two employees home to pave the way for an investigation into an alleged fraud.
Didyal could be heard on the tape berating the man over the decision to send the two workers off the job.
“I am instructing you, dem nah get nobody else in dis building, in dis company who supercedes me. That’s my final f%$&ing… let the f%$&ing minister call me”, he said.
