Unknown to the world – and especially to Indians – Indian ‘citizens’ have approximately 1.4 TRILLION US dollars stashed away in foreign accounts. Wikileaks just exposed the ones in Swiss banks.
The fact remains that India suffers from the most corrupt, nepotistic and money-hungry administration ever seen in its history. The fact that Manmohan Singh jee was responsible for ending the license raj and removing bureaucratic red tape in India’s economy is being used to the hilt by Congress and its favourites. India also “lost” 462 billion US dollars, but India’s politicians and businessmen believe that India and its poor can tolerate such a loss if it benefits the rich.
India’s corruption perception index is 3.3, and India ranks number 87 in the list, showing how the people are aware of rampant corruption and that common public and political perceptions are cognizant of corrup activities, regardless of the INC or BJP being in power.
All hopes are vested with Anna Hazare and his embryonic movement, so that India’s growth and development can finally trickle down to the poorer masses who have suffered for too long.
