    My doubt was right. His mafia brothers are hit as a result of payback by current administration.

    Berlo is right in many regards. West calls it lobbying. And it had been happening for ages.

    Commission ?? What about the salary those people who're getting from respected country ?? People of every country pay these beaurocrafts to work for national interest not for some company. But sadly it exists.

    100% true. the sooner India accept it the better for armed forces. otherwise zaid is ready with Gajwa-a-Hind.

    But there should be no compromise with Quality of product

    Nothing in this world comes for free. Today to create contacts takes money. If you want to reach XYZ who is an important person to create sales but is not accessible or won't meet anyone, you have to scout for people close to him who are accessible. Then create "friendship". In due course you ask him to hook you up to XYZ for an important contract. This guy says OK but it will cost you $$$. You say fine.

    Put this in Air Marshall Tyagis case and you can say that Augusta might have contacted his cousins to get to Tyagis and for that the cousins took money.

    Sad but this is reality. The world over due to secrecy involved in the defence contracts bribes happen. India is not unique but the scale increases in our case because of the inordinate hurdles that the bureaucracy puts up.

    If all deals follow the proper path laid out then there is no need for any lubricating money to be poured in.

    It's fine if the person who's gonna hook up is a private person. Here it's about public work and Tyagi is a public servant as other beaurocrafts. You can't manipulate your service to public and especially when it's related to defence. You need to have suitable product, not something your friend say so.
