    Another Millions of rupees wasted on scheduling this session and adjourning abruptly. Allowances to MPs and cost on meals....etc.

    Whether we like it or not, you have to listen to the majority. Our vote is the same. We don't like most of the elected politicians. Still accept them since voted by the majority of voters. This is democracy. Parliament should be the same. If someone can't follow this basis rule, should be kicked out. Should also be banned from contesting again.

    Our idiots cannot run this country. This country should be leased in its entirety to a foreign country so that its people can live peacefully.

    Why cannot the JO participate in debates in a constructive way. Instead they shout and distrup the proceedings. These fellows should be chased out from politics
