    160 votes ! what about the opinion of ordinary citizens and tax payers ? Don't they get to have a say about their country's future???

    Most disgusting !

    I thought those 160 were also appointed by ordinary citizens and tax payers to make decisions on their behalf.

    They already had their say when they voted for the buffaloes and traitors that make up the 160. Subha Anagathayak!!!

    Out of this 160, how many were voted in by the Opposition parties? So, whose opinions are they representing when voting for these amendments. It is a mockery of Demo-Crazy.

    160 will not solve the needs and aspirations of the masses and the citizens have not the read the constituion.
