Everything does not go by rules and everything is not as it should be. Politics is definitely not a money fetching career. However, politicians have changed the real justification of their role and used their power to overpower the common people. India has witnessed lots of scandals and corruption among politicians. Most of them have cheated the public and become rich themselves, hoarding money and weakening the economy of the country. Some politicians have earned money in other fields but joined politics for either time-pass or further fame. Politics has also become the short cut for solving their personal problems. There are not even a handful of politicians who are truly working for the sake of public profit or welfare. Most of the richest Indian politicians are just rich in bank balance but not in human qualities.

At present Mr. Prasad is the most affluent and rich Indian politician. It has been estimated that he is the sole owner of net property worth Rs.692 crore in Indian rupee. The moveable assets he posses is worth RS. 664 crore. The source of his income has not been found yet but the staggering amount of money he has gathered points out that politics is all about profit.
