    Though in my heart I believe the bribe was paid to make this contract happen. GOI has the responsibility to prove that corruption was involved in this dealing. GOI should have froze this deal longer until investigations were complete and the "Indian/s" involved were brought to justice before cancelling this contract. Rightnow, this looks like we are not wanting to know the whole truth and just cancelling the deal because of some fingure pointing. I am sure there is plenty of evidence if someone really wants to prove this alleged bribe, but until proven in court, this is just an alleged crime. And cancelling based on an allegation is wrong in my opinion. If allegation were enough to keep people off of ballots, more than half of the MPs would have never been elected in the first place. GOI is trying to hold foreigners to a higher standard then their own folks. If paying a bribe is wrong, then receiving should be equally wrong. This whole 2G scam occured, in that case none of the indian corporations involved faced a severe penalty, so then why are we doing this to non-Indian corporations?

    Better give back the 3 remaining choppers as finnmecanica will not give spares to service it in the future.

    Shiv, I find it rather ironic that you spend so much time covering the VVIP chopper deal – first the MoD statement followed by the official statement from A/W parent Finmeccanica ! As it is – this deal whether it gets scrapped or honored makes no difference to the preparedness of the Indian armed forces since it only benefits a handful and privileged few. I will even go as far as to contest that the acquisition of these expensive flying machines would have done nothing to increase the security of the political classes it was purportedly acquired for.
    Please find more new worthy topics to cover. Thank You.

    These Indian politicians and their agents and the babus screw defenses deals by asking for their commissions ..Why atall we need these so called agents as mediators for a suprememe power like India?…And if atall these corrupt guys screw things up for our armed forces why should they suffer to get the latest equipment they need? The soldier who dies to defend India due to improper or old or insufficient equipment he fights with, is a tragedy for India..The Finmeccanica company should be fined heavily instead and the deal should be allowed to proceed .No one should be spared on the Indian side who is proved to have taken a bribe..but the armed forces should not be made to suffer anymore due to these corrupt elements..
