5: Politicians have become rich due to we the people who have really bore the brunt of all the decisions taken from the top.All the different taxes in its different forms for economic development has been an whitewash without any accountability.We the people are also least bothered about our own wealth being manipulated as we are divided by our own thoughts and desire.The nation will only grow when we all accept INDIA has our motherland and sacrifice with utmost dedication for our mothers well being.We are hear for a short period of few years with a manufacturing date and expiry date already printed in our forehead.The riches you have is judged what you can write about your own life at your death bed.

7: The list seems to be based on declared assets or found out by ACB/CBI. Sonia Gandhi is richest politician (in Top 10) in the world, but not found in the list as she declared only assets worth of peanuts to the Election commission. Sharad Pawar is another filthy rich politician, not sure why he was omitted from this list. If the list of black money holders in Swiss bank is made open, I am sure many skeletons will tumble...
