    Why they did they intervene main opposition party lead peaceful protest?
    So far the opposition party didn't make any troubles while making protests. But we see police supporting Government lead protests (Fun thing- the culprits complaining).

    The policemen should realize that these protests are for the relief of every citizen, that includes themselves??
