  1. Where are the loudmouth so-called elite showering praise on the incompetent admin officials? They left no stone unturned in flattering ‘highly incompetent, and inefficient’ city managers under the open sky when they relaxed Section 144 to greet a cricketer. They danced to the tune of the baboos when it was a writing on the wall that sooner or later Covid-19 cases would certainly surface given the poor management by the ‘nauker shahi’. Nauker Shahi still rules the roost and an opportunist mafia is red alert to please them despite knowing they are into a dirty business. This is the reason the inhabitants of the mluntains are now facing threats. I wish and pray : may Allah send all the Covid19 viruses to hit those who poorly managed the pre-coronavirus situation and to those who were dancing to the tune of these poor city managers for reasons best known to them.
