He demanded decentralisation of the taxation system, saying that the existing system was the core reason for bureaucratic corruption. He claimed that 80 per cent of tax revenue was used to pay politicians and bureaucrats. He compared the current budget system of the Indian government to the earlier British budget system in India, presenting statistics to show that they were the same.
He questioned the terrorist attack on the United States' World Trade Center, claiming that it was stage-managed by the U.S. Government, supporting the claims of the Lone Lantern Society of the U.S.
