    These are the choppers for VVIPS. I believe that they have not yet been delivered.

    No, we dont but we have ordered them for the pricks sitting in parliament.

    From RFI to selecting the vendor, everything got completed in record time, shows everything about our bureaucracy,

    The FM then , PC had overturned the Mid Air Refuel-er order citing that the cost was more than the estimated cost of procurement in the tender. At the same time, these outrageously expensive copters were approved in double quick time because they were meant for VVIP duties and not for defense of the country.

    These pricks do not think even a minute about spending money on themselves, but for the nation St. Anthony would rather sit on the file for years and not take any action.

    Why does not Mr Antony cancel the VVIP chopper deal and blacklist AW now that corruption in the deal has been revealed. All this proves that the lives of VVIP's are important while the lives of our jawan's are expendable. Shame on Mr. Antony and his corrupt ministry for the double standards shown. Had the choppers been for our armed forces the deal would have been cancelled, the company blacklisted, a new RFI would be issued resulting in a delay of a decade or more. All the talk of fighting corruption is just a farce.

    If these are for VVIPs, then why not go with our own HAL ALH? I mean, the ministers always ride desi HM Ambassador, so why not desi HAL ALH?
