    Soon there will be an investigation and some Ahmed, Aslam, or Sameer will be arrested accusing them of intentionally causing the fire. At the end 1 political party will gain from it. I have heard that police force people to accept crime and jail them to close cases and 1 kid 19 year old committed suicide after he was released. He was innocent

    “Incompetence knows no barriers of time or place.” “The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.” From Top head to Ministers, MP’s MLA’s, All the Hindu factions, Senas know only one slogan Congress is responsible. By blaming the previous government how you can provide able governance to people. Only imposing taxes and spending on Cow rakshasa is not enough. Do some meaningful, better jobs to uplift poverty of people. Taxes collected needs to used for peoples benefit.

    Worry is only the burnt skin and the burnt part of the body. Compensation will be provided by the ruling government.
