India's cabinet members declare their assets

Well, the Anna Hazare campaign may not have done actual good so far, but one positive result is that the Indian cabinet has (mostly - excluding 5 people) declared their assets.

This is a positive step, and should have been taken long ago.

It not only gives a good signal, it sets an example.

Let us see when all members of Parliament, all senior Judges, and all senior government officials (specifically including members of the Police forces and Armed forces) declare their assets.

Meanwhile, it is interesting that the power of the Prime Minister, and the peer pressure of 72 colleagues has not been enough to persuade 5 members of the Council of Ministers to declare their assets.

What are they hiding?
