19. Mulayam Singh Yadav, 72, President, Samajwadi Party:



Mulayam Singh is new on the list too. He presently heads the third-largest political party in the Lok Sabha and has asserted his agitational brand of politics by marshalling his flock to the well of the House to corner the government on important issues such as price rise and FDI in retail. As winner of the politics of social justice, he closed the position with other backward-class politicians in the Lok Sabha last year to force the government to agree to a caste census.



20. Akhilesh Yadav, 38, UP state chief of Samajwadi Party:



Akhilesh is new on the list this year. He has become the man to watch in Uttar Pradesh with his no-nonsense manner and positive approach. He got the party to announce many of its candidates almost a year ahead of the polls. While all eyes were on Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh quietly made an early start with the Samajwadi Kranti Rath tour across the state last year. He left none in doubt over who calls the shots when he turned down controversial MLA DP Yadav's request to join the party. And when senior leader Mohan Singh dissented, he was removed from the position of party national spokesman.



The others on the list include Jayalalitha, Azim Premji, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Digvijay Singh, Arvind Kejriwal, Sunil Mittal, Cyrus Mistry, Nandan Nilkeni, Mayawati, SY Quereshi, Sheila Dikshit, Saman Khurshid, Anil Ambani, Amir Khan, MS Dhoni, Salman Khan, Chanda Kochhar, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, AR Rahman and many more.

5: Now this News paper also publish Political influence report. We don't agree with this report. even Mayawati is powerful, when she put Rahul Gandhi out of bay during Noida land dispute. Don't publish this rubbish people with the photograph. We have got thieves in Parliament now, who are now have got power and become Dacoits. unfortunate that the party name has been given during freedom fighting time, with real bunch of quality people. Yes Congress Party present honchos, its high time for you to leave this nation.

Compared to people like Gandhiji and Nehru who went to jail because they were not afraid to do and say what they believed in, people like Modi are cowards who hide behind people like Shaw and may police officers who are spending time in jail. A leader must lead by example, like Gandhi. Do not be a coward like Modi for riots and Adavani and co for Masjid demolition. Anyway, what can be expected of followers of someone who gave an apology to the British to save a jail term in Andamans. Same cowardice continues.

10: If MMS being the PM is ranked #3 and Shusma Swaraj without doing anything is ranked #5 then NM supporters should feel happy that he is present in the list. I personally feel he should not have there. He has no moral not ethics. Anybody else in his place would have resigned long ago. NM, the egomaniac, should go and take tuition from Nitish Kumar who is an engineer and his performance is outstanding and too he has managed to turn around Bihar!!

11: This is all paid media tactics. They float a subject with calculative intention. Then they have pre-decided according to the payment received. Otherwise how Rahul and Sonia could be termed as powerful? These Nehruvians might be powerful in their own party, as the other party members have no separate identification and existance. Sonia and Rahul are Nehruvians media made animals. The paid media avoids its duty to reflect the public opinion. Instead of reflecting public opinion media reflects the desire of Nehruvians. After all at least some portion of the 400 lakhs crore rupees in foreign banks illegal account has to shared with media.
