    The problem is the power of huge money is such, you keep on crying, nobody will listen you. IF something started coming up, they will get it silenced by moneypower. Finally, “you bloody Indian” and “NO ENTRY for INDIANS and DOGS ” will continue our faith.

    Sonia Gandhi Biggest Richest

  16. Sayhi2kuna

    Pay 4 the poor..

    Sonia Gandhi is not even her real name. She wasn’t a Cambridge graduate (she studied and did not complete a 6-week English course) and wasn’t even an Indian citizen, until recently. A person like this is a master of identity management. So it must have been difficult to pinpoint her financial holdings. That said, her government has presided over the largest scams in India’s history – Bofors, CWG, 2G spectrum, etc. so the figure could be even higher. Interestingly, she is richer than 100 million Indians put together (if you take the above the poverty line definition of >22 rupees per day)

  18. Vicky As Micky

    hahahaha this Italian b*tch is f**kin HARD =))
    infact Indians shud be proud of bein f**k’d by her administration :D

  19. Madhukarodu

    yes this t he orginality of “Aam Admi’s LEADER”

  20. Pulock from guwahati

    the criminal mastermind of india : sonia gandhi should have been at the top most position. you have got it wrong:”Business Insider”. with her black money in tax havens she must be far ahead of the richest saudi probably by several billions. only  an indian can know how she has looted (and plundered )the country in the last few decades.

  21. Servant of Light

    First check with the website Business Insider then jump to any conclusion. Anyone can make any claim about anything.

  22. Yograj Singh

    where is sharad pawar, kalmadi, raja????karunanidhi, reddy brothers, mayawati, mulayam sing yadav, Badal famil etc……..together around 500 billion dollars, while 60% of India reels in poverty…

  23. Aam admi

    Who can factually tell to Aam aadmi how did she aquired this wealth ?

  24. sridharan

    All this wealth surely belongs to the people of India. It has to be seized.
