    Mafia queen purchases Helicopters for her gang's travel using Tax Payers money. Most of the so called "VVIP"s in UPA regime were corrupt politicians. Purchasing Helicopters for them is a mega waste. Indulging in corruption even in that purchase means this Corrupt Lady thinks Indians can be looted in every way, and no one would question her.

            It is shocking - How this Italian lady with unknown background, even the name is fake, came to control the largest political party in India, looted country to the core through mega scams like 2G, Coalgate, VVIP Copter etc, supported the terror elements to kill the main political opponent, still destroying the country and obstructing the functioning of Parliament. All Indians should wake up at least now.
