    Respected CM Sir, how long can the govt. go on conceding to the demands of one or the other community.If these demands were justified, these should have been met earlier. If unjustified, then it is a blow to democracy and suffering for the rest of the public. Are we so afraid of these demonstrations against our beloved leaders, that we bow before them and accept what demand?
