He went on to add that the Congress-led UPA government had to answer on its inaction against the AgustaWestland deal. “The company was banned during our government, not theirs (UPA). First, let them show any action that they have taken against the company or if they have ordered for its blacklist,” Parrikar said.

On the report that will be tabled before Parliament, Parrikar suggested that those involved in the AgustaWestland deal had tried to erase their trail of corruption. “It is for us (government) to prove and prosecute them… for those who have received kickbacks will not leave behind any proof or evidence (of corruption)” he added.

        Italy has already convicted the criminals. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;InDIKS are investigating still. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I REMEMBER IN 1998, 35 soldiers were killed when an Army truck they were traveling rolled over in the Kashmere valley. It was discovered that the truck manufacturer of that b new truck(ALL) did not add a safety clamp at the end of the track rod that would have served as an additional safety feature. The threads at the end of track rod were not machined to its full depth and so the socket was lose on threads. The socket came out of the rod, disconnected LH and RH front wheels, the driver lost control of the truck and the truck rolled over in the valley. Since ALL is a KERALITE Mafia den and its connections and connivance with IB Keralites are all too well known, the root cause of the accident was very criminally suppressed by Iyer Bureau(IB). lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;All those mothers of all those soldiers will never come to know why their sons died. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The Keralite guy in ALL who was part of the team that was responsible for the murders IS NOW A CONSULTANT( GO BETWEEN) between ALL and Army, a lucrative post retirement position. What a reward for being part of the Truth Suppression Team. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;So if you are an INDIAN citizen, put your middle finger in your mouth when so called national anthem is pla. That is the way you can show your loyalty to those inDIKs and also a symbol of being an INDIAN citizen.
