What was the biggest financial blow you had to endure in 2012?
The fuel price rise is a big blow to the poor in 2012. There were few measures that were pro-poor in 2012.
Would you welcome a tax on the super rich?
I think the rich should be made to go to rural areas and develop those places with their surplus money. It should be mandatory under the budget.
What would you most like the finance minister to do in his upcoming budget?
The finance minister should come up with measures that reach the poor. Our biggest problem is that nothing reaches to the poor people and all remains on paper. The budget should have measures so that the poor benefits in real sense. The budget should be pro-poor and there should be provision under which the poor get relief in their daily life. The budget is seldom made keeping India's vast number of poor people in mind. The government should also try to bring back the black money stashed away in Swiss banks.
