  2. We the Gojalies are really political orphans trusting on such so called and illiterate persons who did nothing just giving false statements. One year passed for this shameful drama and wait & see tactics of these political vultures dragging the whole public into an unbearable situation. It is time to think and come forward with an forceful voice to expose all the culprits who are responsible for the shameful delay and negligence. Please participate in the demonstrations arranged by civil society organizations, across the country to enforce government to expedite work on the spillway by involving Chinese experts if we want to save our homeland. Please raise your voice before it vanishes in deep water.
