    Sharad Pawar with 12 crore in assets? They must have forgotten to add four zeroes next to 12 and before crores.

    assets running into a couple of crores isnt much to talk about because without a doubt there has been a lot of wealth creation in the country, and there is no reason to not believe it cant be done using fair means, but looking at the figures presented by certain people, well it gets very interesting to see and find where all they have concealed all that wealth which is assumed to run atleast in a couple of thousands of crs, i am sure not all of it is overseas.

    well looking at antony's assets, well it doesnt surprise me he remains ever vigilant on any corruption allegation and can back off on a procurement tender at any given moment the moment he senses any sort of corruption.

    1. Chidambarams son is the biggest commodities player in India, his wealth surpasses that of Jhunjhunwala !
    2. Kamal Nath was indicted for many scams, including the 2500 crore rice export scam. He owns a chain of hotels and motels too. And lets not forget the famous 15% commission. Kamal Nath's daughter in law ran off due to mistreatment and his son is a maniac
    3. Sharad Pawar is worth atleast 120,000 crores as btarun pointed out.
    4. The frames of the paintings adorning Murli Deora's appartment cost more than 12 crores.
    5. Dayanidhi Maran was willing to pay 600 crores to Kanimozhi for a private meeting with her father during the tussle for Telecom ministry.

    Hmmm the declaration talks about the white money that all if them hold. So yes the figures should match up as per the IT returns and wealth tax returns.

    Other properties and investments are not usually made in own names. Popularly called benami properties. Front companies today rule the roost in India. Even in the telecom scam, one of the company is alleged to be a front for ADAG.

    This is the biggest joke of the decade. Benami properties not listed, assets of kids, daughters in law and others not listed.
    Mr 15% is rumoured to be the real owner of Moser Baer and not his brother in law the guy who graces the paper work.

    If this is the real asset worth than Anna Hazare just wasted lot of days and fasted for nothing. We are a land of the clean and pure and we do not have any corruption .

    I said four zeroes. So that's 120,000 crores, or Rs. 1,200,000,000,000.

    The bolded parts are known to everyman on the street. Only our 'saaf chavi wale PM' doesn't know it. I think we should write a letter to the PM to notify him :lol:

    There is nothing wrong with legitimate business. If someone is a big commodities player, so be it even if he is the son of a minister. A minister who is very rich is acceptable as well as everyone wants to be rich. What matters is if any part of the wealth came via corruption or stealing national wealth/resources.

    Politicians world over are rich. Bush, Berlo, Cheney, Rumsfeld many more have had good businesses apart from their political career.

    The wrong part is that they misuse their positions of power, often use public money as capital for their private businesses, and use their positions of power for immunity for the wrongdoings of their "legitimate" businesses.

    The above report states that many of the Cabinet ministers have not declared their complete assets and nor do I find any media report that the PMO has asked these ministers to furnish the missing details.

    This is just another whitewash exercise IMO post Anna movement, meant to deflect attention.
