So at last the Police had the guts to arrest this hooligan but the moot question is whether the Police will be allowed to prosecute him due to his political clout. It is very funny that all these criminals end up in hospital after committing a crime.

If this person act like this before being selected for the PC, just imagine how he would be acting if he chosen for the PC??
Voters must be very much mindful and intelligent when voting. Do not carry away for their gift packs.
Further UPFA must cancel his nomination or take serious action against him for illegally using military items and also acting like a thug.

This says it all: The political system is rotten to its core. There are rules and laws, ethical, political, and moral, and we bow our heads, and then we go ahead and do what we want. There is no rule of morality or law in this country. The proper benchmarks are there: It seems no one listened in Dharma and Sunday/Friday schools. DM, this is a responsible comment, unlike the "Banana Republic," previous to this one.
