                             In your address to the nation on 25 January, 2014 among other things you opined that “(o)ur security and armed forces backed by the steel of popular support, have proved that they can crush an enemy within, with as much felicity as they guard our frontiers. Mavericks who question the integrity of the armed services are irresponsible and should find no place in public life”.
