The incomparables have been presented in the question. If you do not occupythe room hotel owner will let it to next waiting customer. The deal is clean and straight.
Regarding UPA 's comment on coal, we have not forgotten the comedy of Kabil Sibal who said that there is no loss in 2G spectrum affair. Now, coal comedy. You can wait for many other comedies.

It is absurd to say that no loss has been incurred as the successful bidder has not started mining coal from the coal fields. As the mining rights has been given to the company, at a much reduced price, the Govt is bound to incur heavy loss unless the leasing rights are revoked by the Govt of India and fresh auction conducted.Unless there is specific provision to this effect in the agreement executed between the the mining company and the Govt of India, I , think, cancellation of the agreement may not be possible.
This is a clear case of loss sustained to the Govt and the Govt can not come up with any sensible excuse for the astronomical loss caused to the country

Absolutely No.The blocks have already been sold at a fraction of the real price and thus it has caused a huge loss to the exchequer.The companies who have purchased the coal blocks are bound to gain astronomically and the possibility is there that the top govt. brass involved in selling these coal blocks has also made a fortune and their Swiss bank accounts have swelled.
Moreover coal blocks and other national resources belong to the public and government is only a caretaker of such resources.It has absolutely no right to sell them.
