    They have to pay for the idling plant and labour including all other running costs. Generally, most of these plant and equipment are hired from different agencies. The China Habour company are liable to pay those agencies regardless.

    Our big fat belly ministers do not know the gravity of their actions. Now who will be held responsible for this. MR? GR? or BR?
