    The politicians in our country cannot make a proper decision at one time cause they are uneducated. Now they promise so much money for individuals who are effected as if they paying out of their pockets. The amounts paid to the victims will be recovered from the public by increasing the price of something. If they had used their brains and done things in the correct way this kinds of disaster will not take place. For this kind of stupid decisions we don't need these kind of politicians in parliament you can have kinder garden children even don it.
