The govt should be responsible for housing ppl.If no 1was sleeping on d road in any other country Salman wuld not have driven over anybody.

It's like penalising a train driver because someone decided to cross the tracks and got killed in the bargain. #salmankhancase

No one should be sleeping on the road or footpath. It is dangerous to do that just like it is dangerous to cross tracks.
