    These guys are making a big commotion to safeguard themselves from the fraud and corruptions that they have committed. If anybody has taken the law into his hands and done any crime, surely, they should be punished. When MR made secret deals with Tiger leader, where were these so called patriotic group? This clearly shows the double standard these desperate people are showing.
