          Shut up paid troll. Don't teach us. First they did raffle did more than the twice of the agreed price. Now defence deal with Russia. Why the govt writes off the debt of corporate? That would have been more than enough defence deal. If you think money is paid as a lump sum you need to learn basic economics first.
