    High time for the common people to teach a lesson to the officials of the unions who had been taking them for ransom. By blocking a lane we are doing the same thing and only helping them. Hammer the bas....ds who are inside the railway stations or stone their houses. There is no other way.

    Dear president, please replace the railways with the army.

    To Bota, Since 2015 there is no government and the country is out of control. Further, Army cannot run trains. It does need special training. That is why they can demand this way.

    I feel ashamed for canvassing and help vote these invertebrates into power......their rule has been 3 years of them scrambling to retain their power while losing control of every segment of civil society. They are an embarrassment of epic proportions!!
