    So, is there any accountability in this country at all? No one is accountable for anything here now. Pathetic state of affairs. Total inefficiency .

    THIS IS ONE OF THE THOUSANDS OF BLASTS THAT OCCURRED IN THE COUNTRY. WE WONDER WHAT ACTION DOES THE GOVT OR THE AG IS PLANNING TO TAKE AGAINST THE COMPANIES THAT DISTRIBUTED THIS "BOMB GAS" OR WILL THEY NOT BOTHER
