    It makes one laugh to see the over excitement of the people for a silly reason..

    Such cases of fraud and cheating has been going on and will be going on forever and ever amongst the politicians all around the world... this is not new.

    The scenes and protests look like something major changes, rules or any other hike in prices by the Govt.. etc.

    But at the same time I don't blame too.. everybody needs a break from the lockdown.

    They had a good day out ... hope not at the expense of Covid positive.

    But your main aim is to publicize the issue for media but no concern for the victims. BTW, how many of your own MLAs have been garlanded and promoted for raping and murdering women but you never protested but hushed it up. The main issue here is justice and compensation for the victims not public show.
