  1. Pathetic. He is changing the tune to get sympathy. This is a family plot. Typical of a politician – to cut down a valuable tree and then mount the stump to make a speech for conservation !

  2. The man who robbed the people (Namal) and ‘danced while Rome burnt’ has now become a man of the people. Do we laugh or cry ?
