Thomas accused Pan Trinbago officials of being a spoiled lot and a handout mentality. He said it is difficult to believe that an organization like Pan Trinbago which has been existence for many years had no funds, it harder to believe that the organization had not even established a retirement to men who had given their blood, sweat and tears to the steelpan movement.
