    This drama taking place is not worthy. Our people have been fed poisonous for may be for the last 25 to 30 years although it's only now the public are educated of it. It is the mere right of every government to look into the food not only imported but also locally manufactured. Those who make deals with people who produce or import such items should be severely punished.
