“The aim of the list is simple, to showcase the most influential Asian people in the world today.

With Jinping heading the list, India’s Congress chief Sonia Gandhi came in second, Chinese premier Le Keqiang third and Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat's chief minister Narendra Modi was fourth.

It said Finance Minister P Chidambaram is listed 11 while Indian President Pranab Mukherjee is 19th. Pakistan's former Army chief Ashfaq Kayani is 18th on the list.
 
Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani is 21st in this year’s list followed by Hasina.

    This is just ridiculous. What is the basis of this evaluation? This could be a personal opinion of a handful people. Must vehemently reject this type of biased evaluations.

    For you Mr. President, 34th place is a great achievement if it is Ranil he will be the 100 out of 100.

    Kamal Raj Tuesday, 08 April 2014 07:08 AM

    Good as long as Ranil is the UNP leader.

    Yeah! That is because Mr. Ranil Wickremasinghe is an extremely an honest politician and has not amassed wealth unethically.
