    This goverment missed the warning and paid good price of human lives. A showcase of a bad administration. If you guys were alerted, yesterday scores of innocent lives would have been saved.

    Nothing will happen and everything will be swept under the carpet. We are well accustomed to all these bull crap by politicians. We are definitely waiting to teach these politicians a lesson when they come asking for our votes this time.

    Only now? All this time you investigating only about the gossip of your murder. See what has happened to the people and the nation. Power greediness will take the country backwards.

    How many investigating committees has the President appointed? Has any of the reports been published or actioned except reports that politically gives him a boost against the Government. It is high time that we send him packing.

    We are fed up these so called panels. Just a waste of time and money. Defence Minister should answer to the nation for the failure of its intelligence services without blaming all others except himself.

    ..and that defines the maximum capacity of our minister of law and order and the President.

    Under this fool of president are the police and the intelligence services. These services failed. That means this president is responsible of the terrible loss of life. He has to resign immediately.
