At last, the persons in uniform came to the table which angered a political party, perhaps they thinks, the way being paved for former president and the military dictator to enter into the country for paying his due role in the politics, that is unacceptable,absolutely unacceptable for N/league.

Chances are bright, they would come,beating of boots is being heard, look around,there is no other option through which peace can be brought in the commercial hub.

Police has failed,rangers could no create acceptable result, now internationally recognised armed forces on its turn. that is last and final solution. ,
