I’ve never felt so much pain in a long time as seeing SRT’s tweet. I do understand they’re merely humans with lot at stake. A Muscle and Money Powered Government which has ways to get back on you at any extend and any expense. Still a broken mirror can never be glued again.— Sajin M S (@ComradeSajin) February 4, 2021
