MODI AMONG WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined the world’s
most powerful people ranking 15th on the Forbes list with
Russian President Vladimir Putin once again beating US
President Barack Obama to the top spot.
The list of 72 most powerful people in the world also
included the names of Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh
Ambani at 36th, Arcelor Mittal, Chairman and CEO Lakshmi
Mittal at 57th and Microsoft’s Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella
at 64th.
Forbes described him as a “Hindu Nationalist” and said
“India’s newest rock star doesn’t hail from Bollywood. He is the
newly elected Prime Minister who sailed into office in May
with a landslide victory, ushering the Bharatiya Janata Party
(BJP) into power after decades of control by the Gandhi
dynasty.”
Forbes referred to the 2002 Gujarat riots when he was the
state’s Chief Minister. “Modi is credited with massive
reconstruction projects in his home state of Gujarat.”
The magazine has credited Modi’s work so far by stating,
“The world is as impressed as the citizens of India: So far he’s
toured the US and China and met with his Southeast Asian
neighbours.”
This year there are 12 newcomers on the list, including Modi
and Egypt President Abdel el-Sisi. Jack Ma, Alibiba founder
and China’s richest man, also makes a first appearance on the
list after his record-breaking $25 billion initial public offering
in September, as does terror group Islamic State’s chief Abu
Bakr al-Baghdadi.
A notable omission from the list is Congress president Sonia
Gandhi, who was the highest ranked Indian last year at 21. The
next Indian after Modi on the list is Ambani at 36th. Forbes said
Ambani has business ventures in petrochemicals,
manufacturing, oil and gas production, and now wireless
sectors, “the sum of which have landed him as the richest person
in India for eight years running.”
It noted Reliance’s $655 million acquisition of media outfit
Network18. In October, Modi inaugurated Ambani’s Reliance
Foundation’s new hospital in Mumbai, “ending rumours about
Ambani’s waning clout in New Delhi,” Forbes said.
This is the second year in a row that Putin carries the crown.
Obama had previously been on the top of the list for every year
with the exception of 2010, when Hu Jintao, the former political
and military leader of China, was ranked 1. The top five remain
the same as 2013- Chinese President Xi Jinping ranked third,
Pope Francis at No. 4 and the world’s most powerful woman
German Chancellor Angela Merkel ranked fifth.
Fed chief Janet Yellen moves into sixth position, followed
by Bill Gates and European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi.
The most powerful people in business are Google’s Larry Page
and Sergey Brin, both ranked nine amd UK Prime Minister
David Cameron slides up to number 10.
The Forbes list of the ‘World’s 72 Most Powerful People’
who “rule the world” features 17 heads of state who run
nations with a combined GDP of about $48 trillion. It has 39
CEOs and chairs who control over $3.6 trillion in annual
revenues. Among the corporate honchos are 14 founders,
including the newcomer billionaires to the list, Alibaba’s Ma
and Tencent’s Ma Huateng.
This year there are nine women on the list, representing 12
per cent of the world’s most powerful-in stark contrast to being
50 per cent of the world’s population. While the same number
as last year, the inaugural list from 2009 included only three
women leaders.
