Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati's assets doubled during her chief ministership of UP, from Rs 52 crore
in 2007 to Rs 111.64 crore when she filed her nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha elections on Tuesday.
In 2010, when Mayawati contested the legislative council elections again (in 2007 she had fought a byelection;
hence the need to seek a re-election), she had declared total assets of Rs 88 crore. A close look reveals that
she ruled for 58 months and the increase (including appreciation) in her wealth in this period was of Rs 59 crore,
which amounts to a growth of Rs 1 crore per month.
On Tuesday, her affidavit showed immovable assets worth Rs 96.38 crore and movable over Rs 15.26 crore.
Besides Rs 10.20 lakh cash in hand, the dalit leader has around Rs 14 crore in five bank accounts, murals
worth Rs 15 lakh, a revolver valued at Rs 5,390 and gold and diamond jewellery valued around Rs 96.53 lakh.
