    Mr Speaker, the President, our great hero MR had done your jobs properly this disaster would not have happened. The whole country and its citizens are angry as they are tax payers who do not live in peace and harmony. Your armed forces got the tip on 4th April, what action was taken on the matter. We all have to pay for our sins some day, all religions teach us this precept.
