    If I'm not mistaken, what they said was the cold weather will be over in 2 days. But we can expect again a drop in Feb. So in that case we will have to wait till Feb to say whether they are experts or people hired from the streets.

    The curse is the result of the bad weather and disaster... vegetables and basic essentials prices skyrocketing due to crop disaster, where common people will be compelled to starve while all the corrupt will be having full meals and enough money to travel in high fuel consuming luxury cars with so many back up vehicles....etc etc
