Sonia Gandhi: World's Fourth Richest Politician

Bangalore: Sonia Gandhi is the world’s fourth richest politician, said Business Insider, a U.S. based internet news aggregator and publisher. As per the report, the UPA chairperson’s wealth is currently valued at $2-19 billion (Rs 10,000-45,000 crore).



The wide range given, $2-19 billion is a giveaway that these numbers may have been plucked out of a hat.



As per Netapedia, an online encyclopedia about India’s politicians and the political events, Sonia Gandhi has movable assets worth 1, 17, 70,468 and immovable assets worth 20, 24,300. This financial information was as per affidavit filed before the 2009 general elections.



Firstpost’s own estimate, based on income disclosed by Sonia Gandhi during the last general elections and the income-generating assets she owns, suggests that her annual income cannot be more than Rs 50-75 lakh.



Given the wide range within which her assumed wealth is estimated, it is obvious that Business Insider is not sure what the numbers really are. The online publication has sourced the story to a website called ‘World’s Luxury Guide’. Luxury Guide in turn traces its information to five other sources like OpenSecrets.org, Forbes.com, Bloomberg.com, Wikipedia.org, and Guardian.co.uk.

3: Madam -

After 65 years of independence, we now have more poor people than we did in 1947!

The largest number of hungry people in the World... in India!

The largest number of people in the world without toilets in India, after 65 years of independence!

More women die during child birth in India than anywhere else, after 65 years of independence!

More children are malnourished than anywhere else!

The largest number of illiterates in the World!

The largest number of child deaths in the world due to diseases & hunger!

The largest genocide of women before their birth!

The largest quantity of food rotting in the world!

The biggest corruption cases in the world & also the most numerous!

The only democracy in the World where a dynasty runs the country for more than 5 decades!

The largest population in the World without stable power!

The largest population in the world with no access to safe drinking water!

Per capita income less than that of "failed state" Pakistan!

The largest number of people in the World who are "Slaves" or "Bonded labour" is in India!

Most rapes in a democratic country ... India!

This is the progress that Madam & her family (Husband, Mother in Law, Husband's grandpa, son, daughter & also son in law) altogether spelled as Cong. party of India has given us.

If people still believe in this bogey of falsehood, may God help this country.

Look at & compare to countries who either were in worse off state 65 years ago or got independence later and where have they reached since then; then ask where are we ?

Japan (was nuked)
South Korea
Singapore
UAE
Qatar
Malaysia
Thailand
Vietnam
Germany (was devastated)
Italy (was devastated)
France (was devastated)
Argentina
Brazil
Israel
China (surprise)
Mexico

Do we need more proof that this lady is actually the Devil speaking!

25: most of us are pissed off with the fact that a college drop-out european gal after having married the son of a third world country's premier, has now risen to a position, where, she's able to pick the prime minister, president, parliamentary speakers, vice president, ministers, intelligence chief and other important dignitaries according to hers and only her wishes. she didn't like india to the extent, she did not even become a citizen well after she was exposed. yet, she is so very powerful.

reminds me of the indian history, where, foreign kings, who didn't have any knowledge of india's terrains and topography, were able to loot, kill, rape and ransack rich india...all thanks to indians who guided them the way to the temples, castles, etc.

the unfortunate thing is, we indians have still not changed a bit. we have unashamedly helped this disgusting woman to become wealthy and powerful. there had been hoards of suckers in the country who had wanted to fast to death if she refuses to become the pm of the country. can you just beat that?

recently, she went to usa purportedly for her chemo. its just impossible for a lady of her age to have chemo therapy and return to india as if nothing had happened. probably, she was talking to the big shots in the usa national chamber of commerce about her cut and/or shares in their profits, if they are allowed to enter the indian market. the congress goons had staged big dramas for her early recovery and the naive villagers had also joined them.

let us realise first that we are stupid to have been patient onlookers, while this damn woman, her big-mouth daughter, her pseudo son and now, even her overzealous son-in-law have been bullshitting to us and amassing massive wealth. there are still billions of indians who would die for this conniving woman & her family.

jawaharlal nehru, while being a senile balls carrier to the british, had at the same time, gave up much of his family assets to the government. indira gandhi was truly a megalomaniac, but there's no concrete proof that she had amassed wealth.

the present monetary status of sonia & her her mafia (son, daughter, et al) are due to their conniving strategies and the indian electorate's stupidity. do you think, we can now wake up and shed off our stupidity and become smart for a change?

29: The level of mudslinging is done with what is nothing but blatant lies exposes the desperation of the opposition particularly the BJP and RSS supporters. I do not believe Advaniji would have given an apology to Sonia Gandhi for the report published by his party alleging that he family had money stashed away in Swizz bank. People who put out stories use USA based sources and see no difference between 9 billion and 19 billion. A flowed propaganda for 60 years has got no where, may be useful to Ramdev and Anna teams but people in India know better...Time people focus on real issues.

33: Lots of people writing sonia Gandhi is junk and all that and just imagine this she is ruling how how lame are you. India and Indians are always taken for granted. Even if an African lady from Somalia comes and rules India I won;t be surprised. That is how Indians and India are poolan devi,veerapan, prabhakaran, Dawood and are would also rule India. India is such a grea country it is mandatory to have criminal cases either currently running or in the past for you to be eligible to become a politician. India was previously ruled by British and now by Goondas does not make much differance. British took some and gave some now Goondas take everything and give nothing.

while i agree with you on the point that indians are suckers to foreigners, whatever colour or nationality they are from, i strongly disagree your mention about prabhakaran in your summarised list of brigands. prabhakaran fought against sinhalese tyrants, who raped, robbed and ravaged his fellow tamils. try and read some neutral, well-researched article. if you believe whatever indian media says, then, you're actually believing what their true financial backers want them to say...

36: The figures are definitely fudged as her sources of income is well known. She may have multi crore account being the Chair person of INC - the largest political party. The farm house, etc owned by the Gandhis' were in distant places hardly 20 years ago. Development has inched closer to those far away places and obviously, the ever hungry, big time builders would pay any amount now for these farm houses. The cost of land has increased 10-50 times over the last 5 years.

37: How much she got from Mr. Raja's Rs 1,76,000 crore. Did Raja will tell during 2G trial ? This is the reason, the congress crushed the Jan Lokpal movement of Mr. Anna and team. It proves very difficult to fight against these corruption kings, unless people unite.

When she is having so many billions why is she cares for up liftment of poor people of our NATION.She and her son may be indirectly helping her relatives in Italy or her son to his girlfriend from overseas.Even her son- in - law whose family had no much money has no become Millioner,if the would have not got married to Priyanka then he would have been on roads.

50: I feel its all in the way we look at such things. Look at the brighter side to feel better.

Just a few facts that we don't realise -

We are one of the biggest economy...dont feel that the figure quoted above is even a fraction of it.

We are aiming at a GDP of around 9-10 in the years to come...currently the average GDP of the world is less than "1" and we are 7-8 times better than the world.

Currently we easily contribute around 15-18% of the worlds population.

The annual budget of Mumbai Municiple Corporation is even bigger that the annual budget of "Bangladesh".

There are better things to think about!!!

It was Rajiv Gandhi who brought it to us......We shud be thankful to this family.....for making us aware of the technology....that indians today are the best in it.....and it has contributed in increasing our GDP dramatically......so are so many families in india whos life is completely dependent on it for food n shelter.......Why do we forget all this contribution.....it's very easy to accuse someone.....but difficult to accept the facts..............But i do agree that most of our politicians are corrupt.........I also wanna make one this very clear that i dont belong to any pary as i have never voted for anyone in my life n will never do either........

What do you think, Rajiv Gandhi is giving food to all the computer Engineers in India. How can you say that he bought the computer to India? and How can you guarantee that if he did not bring it then no one else would have bought it.

The whole family is the biggest cheater in India . Everyone knows that. You did not voted till now , so you are irresponsible Indian. You do not even use your Right to Vote.

Please do some research ... In 1984 Rajiv Ghandi was having the maximum black money in swiz banks arount 50 million dollars. India press raise the issue but everything was suppressed. They are the biggest cheater ... NO DOUBT IN THAT ...

It is unfortunate that a family which dedicated itself to the service of the nation are being maligned by a group of people who have NO contribution to the nation. If Baba Ramdev can accumulate crores by selling Yoga, what is wrong if it is done by a politiciaan ? I am not a Congress supporter( I have always opposed that party(party in power during my college days in 70s)nor have beeen bribed by Congress to say so nor I support corruption.

If only those person who are entirely clean has onus to clean the system than this society will always remain in mess. Just because someone has done wrong by accepting bribe once doesn't mean that he should turn blind eye when a rapist rape somebody. The society has become corrupt because of systematic nurturing and protecting of corrupt. If sonia gandhi has inherited it from nehru's family than why the hell she doesn't declare her asset and shut the mouth once and for all. As far as ramdev is concerned we do know exactly where his money come from but we don't have any clue of her ever increasing assets which has surpassed even politicians of Arabs and those who have bussiness background. These facts are too startling to ignore.

Oh, sorry to say but I am feeling very bad to see your sympathy regarding Ghandhi/Nehru family. As everyone know in our country that most of the corruption came in the Congress/Ghandhi Raj. And for the freedom of my country, Nehru family was just part of that not fully responsible. After freedom they got the opportunity to rule India without any feeling of the value of freedom.
For the death of the two person of this Gandhi family, they were only responsible for their death not the country person. So why we (common people) suffer always.

It seems you are a blind fan of Gandhi Pariwar(family).i would like to draw your kind attention on so called sacrifice given by this so called royal family.If sacrifice does matter in our country culture then Netaji's family,Bhagat sing's family deserve more than this so called honest gandhis. From "the last english man of India" Mr.Neheru to today's Sonia ji they have a hidden character of ruling our nation with their view and they think this country is their zamindari.Time has changed my dear friend you can not make us fool with such faltu sentiments.They are corrupted and they are behind end numbers of scams.It is now real JAI HIND.

no one sacrifice to nation from gandhi's family, they died because of their faith, because of what they did to people's who suffer a lot from their decision. so they got it. do you know what the meaning of jai hind i think you not. more than gandhis family lost 2, i always salute the soilder's family who lost their bravehearted son/daughter's. so need to tell them use that money(our money) to remove poor poverty from india.

94: Irrespective of the numbers variation size and blah..we all know that politicians are simply getting rich by the hour,minute, second. There is no second guessing about the fact that sonia has made a lot of money like the rest of the politicians. So what can we do about this. Nothing, Nada zilch. simple as that. Vote for someone else. They'll get rich. it's either sonia or baburao shinde. does not matter.

I fully agree with your statement that all the politicians getting richer every second of the moment they are in power so nothing unusual.

96: It is a lunatic thought to say that the politicians have increased the gap between hindus & muslims. More of our corrupt religious gurus responsible for it. So now we have a new law that politicians should be hanged untill death & all their personal properties should be declared as national income. Well, who would be left in the country? And why only seize Sonia Nehru's property alone. Nehru came from very wealthy family and had he would be earning far more not bey becoming a mp. By steeling peoples money a nation cannot reduce its debt by 10 %. Wrong, she is a party leader like Advaniji and others and has the right to travels in Air Force Helicopters.

98: This are the real terrorist of our country. They have increased the gap between hindus & muslims which are now unrepairable. These politicians should be hanged untill death & all their personal properties should be declared as national income. If the government seizes Sonia Nehru's[calling her gandhi would be shame] property alone then India will be able to reduce its debt by 10 %. No one even dares to touch them & she without any position travels in Air Force Helicopters. Shame to the politicians of India.

102: The website has for sure got it wrong. It cannot be so low.... Gandhi family have looted India for 60 years - they should have made much more.....even if assuming 1 - 2 billion per year they would surpass all other possible politicians. The website should be sued for showing our great Gandi family in 'poor' light - they are much more rich than this.....Gandi's no worries - keep looting us.......

They have disgraced the GANDHI name, disgraced the father of nation.They should have not used such a name. they should have use their own name 'Gandhy'(Parsi name)and Madam should have used her's, whatever it is..

This comment clearly shows how the system works. You don't have any reasonable explanation for anything to the subject, like how Sonia Gandhi has over billions of wealth but all you have to say is that people from another caste/religion/sector/political party are accusing her. And the argument goes round and round. You leech of society deserve to be whipped.

India must do all it can to remove this illiterate rulers in the next elections.

Don,t say any thing abt Gandhi's family. Now real Gandhi's family is living as a normal human beings. But Nehru's family is looting us for the past 60 years. Do u agree congress is ruling the India nearly 50 years. With out knowing these fellows Is it possible to transfer the billions of rupees in Swiss banks.

Down Down Nehru--Indira--Rajiv--Sonia--Rahul

What... politicians are behind only a number of scams.... that sentence needs correction. Politicians are behind almost every contract, every transaction made from Govt. of India, squeezing as much as possible. Shame on our Indian Polity. Shame on our Indian people who are still blind and going on voting for wrong candidates
