    This, too, will be just like the committee appointed to inquire into the Central Bank robbery. Nothing will happen in the end.

    Mr. President. We as a nation hold you responsible for ignoring the warning the police received on the attack 10 days ago. Why are you keeping quiet? Answer us, because we voted for you to protect this nation and not to kill us and destroy it. The police department is under your purview. You owe the nation an explanation.

    You should appoint a 3 member committee to check if the president has a brain.

    People do not need committees. They need to know why did you, as the President
