    From yesterday's protest we saw a parliamentarian as an organizer, he could speak these issues in the house, he is paid by the state. It's a shame, what are these guys trying to do.

    Very good. Arrest the leaders and charge them for contempt of court. SITAM is legal "legally ".

    We heard "Murders" when it was the previous government.We hear "Protest" when it is the present government.

    Keep it up. As long as the medical students don't speak out against private tuitions and private medical practice their protests are pure hypocrisy.
