You have no idea how many people will fight for Rs 8000 crores in funding or $100bn in funding. Even though the problem has already been solved years ago and they can simply implement it. But why would they let go of free money which they are receiving to make merry and enjoy the next 6-7 years with? If some fools are willing to spend billions of dollars to develop something which can never be developed in 99.999% probability and has already been solved earlier. Why refuse the money? Any smart guy would keep his mouth shut and take the money and scoot.
Also why would anyone lose a chance to be the guardians of human destiny and control access to people with money and power?
