Mukesh Ambani

Few years ago, Mukesh Ambani made news with his skyscraper-house Antilla that overlooks Mumbai’s infamous slums.

This year he’s back with yet another controversy surrounding the hike in gas prices which is apparently supposed to benefit Reliance Industries. Social activist Arvind Kejriwal has hit out against the elder Ambani brother (and the prime minister in effect) saying that the former runs the country and is blackmailing the government.

Kejriwal went so far as to state that Jaipal Reddy was removed as the petroleum minister for refusing Ambani-led Reliance Industries' proposal to hike charges of gas it supplied to state-run power plants. Kejriwal also said that Mukesh Ambani has a Swiss account with Rs 100 crore stashed abroad.

Ambani, however, is enjoying his status as India’s richest with a net worth of around $19bn-$21 billion – and topped both Forbes and Hurun’s list this year.
