    Our elected representatives who were mocking our neighbouring state have gone into mute mode now..!! During this time of crisis all differences across parties should be kept aside and work together for humanity sake. We have already reached community transmission. We are left to fend for ourselves now.. Now it's all about ourselves and our families that's it..!
