  1. This Gamarala was so lethargic that at Security council meetings he is looking at the roof when security of the country was discussed. Former PM was never summoned for meetings . He must be hung for the lapses that caused such tragic situation in the country. One can put it down to he lack of knowledge and the ability to for foresee what was in store when there were such reports from intelligent services months before
