This is the time to people react and select good candidates with dignity, after doing wrong, do not try to cry for mistakes you have done.

Is this the need of the hour? The govt.is going to spend a colossal amount to consolidate power using maximum man and machinery.Why don't they feed the people instead.

A waste of money. What can the Govt. do to end the suffering of the farmers with this severe drought? This is one man's ego trip.
