As far as helicopters are concerned - the companies that provide helicopter services , sustain themselves on carrying important people like our PM, Sonia Gandhi and other so called leaders.....so I guess yes THIS POOR COUNTRY CAN AFFORD TO BURN AVIATION FUEL INSTEAD OF PROVIDING THE POOR WITH FOOD AND SHELTER.
Guess needed to get this out of my systems ...sorry for the raving and ranting..

What really gets me is that our PM travels in a high speed convoy for which all other traffic is halted to make way. All the roads on his route are beautified and construction is hurriedly finished (at least in Bombay) to make his path smooth and beautiful.
In spite of all this he is complaining.
Imagine if he really had to go through our regular traffic conditions. I think the poor soul would have a nervous breakdown!

Actually, aircraft - small ones esp, dont use that much fuel. It's more about the cost of the aircraft. It makes much more sense if a VVIP uses an aircraft instead of doing a 25 car [all high power, fuel guzzling cars] convoy - and simultaneously having a few thousand vehicles idling away waiting for these 25 cars to pass by.
Yes, slow vehicles are another problem - like the 3-wheeled goods carriers that are loaded to the point that they cant move .. Loaded trucks on city streets in peak hours

Just saw this thread.
Those comments are clearly targetted at private car owner. From my experience, the least courteous drivers on the roads are cab drivers,auto drivers, bus drivers etc.
I just have a couple of questions.
(1)How often do you see two private cars colliding?
(2)How often do you see accidents where at least one party is an auto/truck/bus/cab/two wheeler/lorry?
(3)How many undented indica cabs have you seen?
etc etc etc
Frankly, the only way I can interpret this comment is "My citizens, some of you own really good cars. Thus, if you have a Honda Accord, you should be glad. Please don't complain about the roads. Yes, we do collect Life time road tax, but it is ,in reality ,a penalty for owning a car. Please improve your behaviour. And next time when you complain about bad roads, think about the man with nothing. Very few have Honda Accords and few of them vote. All auto rickshaw drivers vote, so be courteous to them"
It is just my opinion and my interpretation.
