LIST OF THE MOST POWERFUL PEOPLE IN INDIA – PM NARENDRA MODI TOPS THE LIST WHILE YOGI ADITYANATH ENTERS THE LIST OF TOP 10 POSITIONS

The list of top 50 most powerful Indians published by the Indian Express Groups claims that the first three positions of 2016 has been retained by the earlier toppers — Prime Minister Narendra Modi at No. 1, BJP president Amit Shah on No. 2 and RSS sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat on the third position — but with a difference.

Look at it, also, to get a sense of how, over the past year, power has changed hands — and how power itself has changed.

RANK 4 –  J S Khehar, 64

Chief Justice of India | (Rank 2016: 41)

SOURCE

THE REASON

With the judiciary and the executive locked in a struggle over delay in appointments to the higher judiciary and a new Memorandum of Procedure (MoP), the CJI, who heads the collegium that clear the names of judges for high courts and the apex court, plays a key role. Besides, he will hear all important PILs in the Supreme Court.

THE WORK

The SC collegium under him has stood its ground, virtually rejecting every contentious clause that the Modi government wanted in the new MoP.

THE FUTURE

He is expected to head the Constitution bench that will decide the validity of Aadhaar and the contours of the right to privacy.

NOTE: He often refers to his wife as ‘Sher Khan’ and ‘Tiger’.

COMING UP THE NEXT ON RANK 5 AJIT DOVAL
