A security chief once close to the former strongman has turned spiteful to him now, they say. Under the new administration, an adequate security detail has been assigned to the former strongman, but part of the fleet of vehicles was withdrawn. And as a result, some of the security guards are compelled to find other means of transport when the need arises for them to escort the former strongman.
Given this problem, the present security chief of the former strongman made a plea to his predecessor now elevated to a higher position to assign a few more vehicles for the transport of the security detail led by him.
“No more vehicles to escort your boss. You had better manage with the vehicles already available,” was the security high up’s curt reply.
Later at a reception accorded to him at a Buddhist temple in the city, the former strongman told a sympathetic audience that some of his security men were compelled to travel by train and bus for want of vehicles. A report says that some well-wishers on this occasion decided to buy a few vehicles to beef up the escort fleet of the former strongman.
As if all the looted money has vanished into thin air. He can buy Security for generations with the loot of the country. Give a thought to the poor Tax payer.

If I was MR., I would withdraw from all political activity, have nothing to do with his former "followers" for at least next six years. Instead, spend time with his family, spend long holidays maybe in China, Iran, (possibly) India, write his memoirs etc. We must all remember the verse in the "Dharmapatha", "All things are impermanent" Holy Bible says, "Heaven and earth will fade away, but My Word, by no means will fade away". After all, he has enough to live comfortably and the nation will always be grateful for the way he conducted the "war".

I have met or come close to him in my life time. I have not got any personal favours from him. I only shared what the country got from him. I admire him for the great service he rendered to this country. So I request that a fune be startes so that we could contribute. This would help him to obtain security.
