Lok Sabha speaker Miera Kumar?s two bunglows in Delhi were declared at Rs 2.4 crore and 4.95 crore; their real values being 12 crore and 26 crore respectively. Mayawati in 2009 declared a house under her name to be worth 61.86 crores but experts said that it would have been worth Rs 429 crore. Every leader from ex Delhi CM Shiela Dikshit to Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, from Sushma Swaraj to Rajnath singh is found to be undervaluing their assets or not declaring them at all to hide the significant unreasonable increases. And the most common excuse given by the politician stands to be the rise in prices of the already owned properties.
But the same politicians with their so called ?net worth? suddenly are found to be in possession of costly movable and immovable assets when raided like in the case of YSR Congress MLA Kapu Ramachandra Reddy. Politics has become just a money-spinning business tool for most of the politicians with generations of family involved in it. And most definitely, it is on the expense of the common man who elects them with some hopes, that these politicians build a huge balance.
are people who work towards exposing these politicians but the power
these politicians accumulate over the years overpower all other
efforts and they are let free. What explains almost the 50 percent
growth in the net worth of the politicians! It is the leaders who
need to realize their responsibilities now. Because no matter how
many committees we set to check on them, corruption finds its way.
