The Prime Minister may have been a tea supplier and come from a poor family. But the Cabinet he presides is a cabinet of crorepatis.
According to the analysis by Association of Democratic Reforms and National Election Watch, 59, out of 64 central ministers are crorepatis. The average asset of these ministers come to Rs. 18.48 crore according to the report. Y.S.Chaudary, Rajya Sabha M.P. from AP, who has now been elevated to Minister and who is the richest, is having an asset of Rs. 189.69 crore followed by Jayant Sinha from Jharkhand with 47.37 crores.
Some of the ministers newly appointed are having serial criminal cases against them.
These crorepatis will save the nation and the people ? The answer is clear and loud – a big NO.
