Opposition silent over Sonia’s assets – From Democracy to Plutocracy

via HK published on March 16, 2012

New Delhi: The Media and Sycophants who celebrated ‘Sonia Gandhi’s Sacrifices’  since she got married to Rajiv Gandhi is keeping mum over the recent exposure by a foreign magazine that she is richest political lady and the fourth richest politician in the world.

According to the list her wealth has been broadly mentioned as in between $2-19 billion, that is Rs 10,000 crores to Rs 45,000 crore. As per the report she is richer than even the likes of Monarch of Dubai or Emir of Abudhabi.

This report comes out at a time when she refuses to divulge details of her IT return to a PIL applicant. When Chennai-based RTI activist V Gopalakrishnan had sought details of her I-T returns from 2000 to 2011 the Aam Admi’s leader the request was refused citing security reasons! Sonia in the last general elections had declared her assets worth Rs 50-75 lakh only.

What is more disappointing is the silence of opposition parties like BJP or Communist – Marxist parties in this regard.   Are we edging towards Plutocracy from Democracy?
