    I am waiting for full scale blow up of the scandal in our Armed forces. Anybody and everybody responsible for polluting the sanctimony of Armed Forces should be brought in front of Indian Judiciary and prosecuted, if found guilty he/she should be handed down the longest jail term with hard labour for 50 to 100 years.

    The above is more important. 7000 such vehicles have already been supplied and in use by the IA.

    What he also says is that the people offering him the bribe told him
    Army needs to pull up its socks and clear the shit that has taken root.

    So, what are the vehicles he is talking about?. If we know these vehicles we will know who the person who bribed him and the political backing this ex-Army lobbyist is getting from.

    The congress government is "ALL IN ALL SCAM GOVERNMENT". B.S., if this is the state of the country then we will demise so quickly that one fine morning when we get up we will be captivated by someone else. Drive out the entire fake gandhi family and bring peace and freedom from foreign rule.

    Offer was made directly to the Army Chief. How does the government come into the picture? As of now there is no mention of any government official. Unless the Army Chief tell more about this and if there is any government involvement.

    What I make of this is the company tried to get the Army Chief to "advise" the government on further purchase of the vehicle and certify it's "quality" and "need" for the army.

    The government will go by what the army wants.

    Anyone seen the movie Hum? This situation reminds me of that movie.

    14 crore for 600 vehicles works out to 2.5 lacs approx. considering a 10% estimation as bribe, the vehicle should cost about 25 lacs approx. what vehicle would cost that? I am thinking APCs would be of that range ?? Or some trucks like Tatras?

    Logistic Vehicles, Tatra are good seen them in action though..

    it always strange for me to see Mahindra Jeep with Maruti jeep, Maruti army jeeps is more powerful than Mahindra once and why two vehicles of same category are in service..

    Now what vehicle is it? It's not going to be tough to find out, since the numbers have been given, so veterans any idea what vehicle are we talking about.

    I seriously believe this is just the tip of the ice berg.

    At 25 lacs (with the escalation) or 2.5 L (without it) it doesn't look like an exorbitantly high amount for APC. The army does need such things.

    My doubts on the govt not being part of it.
    How can an army man with a fixed scale income suddenly show such high increase in his property?
    I certainly believe the govt is a part f this mess.

    Interesting to note that Maruti no longer caters to the army these days and most of the deals go to Mahindra.
