    A 30 year cold blooded war with a deadly terrorist group ensued due to inactions by the then Govt on a matter of importance and not nipping it in the bud. The issue with the GMOA, a group which is more deadlier than that terrorist group is not resolved in a timely manner another war will erupt. We appeal to the Govt to come out of the cocoon of impotency and take meaningful action and resolve the issues without any further delay. The masses are suffering.
