  1. As a result of having fools in the government, top to bottom, the country and it’s people are in a MESS.. All this whilst the corrupt politicians are living in the lap of luxury at the taxpayer;s expense.. The floating Prime minister R.W in abeyance rides in a Rs.300 million luxury, bulletproof car, again at the expense of the taxpayer.. All this whilst the poor man cannot have one square meal per day.
